FreeBetrayed by my heart,
I sit alone, sad and broken.
Where once there was love and hope,
Now there is only chaos and confusion.
Hatred and loathing run through my veins,
And I wish that it would all go away.
My heart disappears further into my chest,
Trying to hide itself from the pain it has caused.
Each time I think of my life,
I cringe and my eyes burn with tears of misery.
I don't know how to love anymore,

I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.

and in my blood.
