Report Story



Closed off from the castle

Lost in the hallway, I’ve lost my way

Out of commission, love is on the edge of fate

Someone must stop and pray

I walk through the ruins

With ashes on my face

I breathe in the smoke

I’m left behind, I find it hard to breathe

I used to feel safe

Alone, I’m left alone in this bitter phase

Manipulation tactics steal the joy from me

Distant is the life I’ve left behind


I burn in the blazing flames

I’ve been chased away

I’ve felt the shame

I’ve been blamed

I’ve felt the guilt, it’s never been erased


The push and pull reminds me I’m alone

I’ve cried every tear

I’ve cleared out all my fears

I still reach out for your hand

I know you’ll continue to look away.
