Pain I release you from me
I have captured you, it seems
You are there in the morning
There at night
No one knows it, because you are hid behind my light.
You have been abused,
I have kept you in the shadows
Reaching for you only when need be
Only when, his face, I see
I often think you were the innocent part
The one who wanted to leave but I did not allow it
I have held onto you like a good book.
One for which I often take a look at.
I should have let you go because I had other prisoners of my own
The sadness is one for which I have gave it a home.
Fear is always near, never venturing far away.
Love wants to stay here forever, I don’t know why she does.
I just have so many and this is so hard to say.
They all have their own address and one leads to his door,
The other is the one for which I often explore.
So pain, I am trying to let you go, slowly.
I promise it won’t be easy for you have been here so long
But I often will look for you, once you are gone.
I hope you can find another place that keeps you as a reminder,
Instead of a prisoner
I regret keeping you but some day I will meet you again.
