The Power

i hate the power i give you
like you are my puppeteer
controlling my every move
every thought
every word
You pull me on a tight string
i'm just a dog on your leash
You don't let me wander
or live my own life
i'm not even human to you
i'm just a toy
something you play with
and then discard
but I worship the ground you walk on
You're a god
You have power
The power to make me feel as if i'm soaring
or feel like death is my only option
You are so perfect
and i am just ashes of the person i used to be
but when i'm with you
that person reappears
if only for a second
Then the pain takes over
but it's that one second
that gives you all the power
