I was never alive.

I merely exist

I wanted to live

But you never gave me a chance.

I was never alive.

You held my strings

Chained me to your will

And played me to your heart's content.

You bound a collar to my neck

Made me do things I never wanted to

Never knowing that within this happy smile

I was screaming in my head.

Unknowing, unfeeling, you led me on

Toying with my love struck heart

Now you've left me all alone

Picking up the shattered pieces of my soul.

I was never alive.

I merely existed

From the time you came

Till the day you left.
