Because I Made A Stand

In my dreams you come to me
holding flowers on bending knee
Your face a mask what’s underneath
Your heart a hole where one used to be
Your body hidden by a cloak
You must be kidding, is this a joke
Behind your mask no face is there
A hole for your heart for none was ever there
the cloak that hides your skeleton frame
is made of souls that you have stolen in shame
But the shame is not for you,
it comes from hearts that are true
for deceivers leave wreckage in their wake
and I pay for my mistake
for not believing in myself
and for not believing in what I knew
that you are a liar, I always knew
And now my heart sits on a shelf
with the forgotten knick-knacks and dust
slowly turning to rust, which never sleeps
just like me
When will I have the strength to break free
out of these invisible chains that seem to bind me
the familiarity that ties me
down the spiral staircase go
the windows blackened by lost souls
I keep looking and try to see
but I don’t know which one is me
I think, I am not here at all
this display will all fall away like raindrops
Maybe I’m like Ebenezer Scrooge
shown and given a chance to choose
Which when will he take
the path is clear make no mistake
I will choose for change
and then those chains that seem to bind me
the invisible ties as they be
will flutter like snowflakes to the ground
turn to water. then to sand
just because I made a stand
the sand to dirt, the dirt to rock
off the new mountain I will drop and fly
with the wings of an angel, for I will be free
from all the lies ever told to me
all the “Fucking Bitch” names called will be gone
all the controlling bullshit games and fighting
will slide like mud away from me
and a new day will dawn
because I made a stand
