An Unbound Cage

An Unbound Cage

A Poem by Lily Victoria
"

December 22, 2013

"
How can such hopeful thoughts lead to depression?
Trapped inside a cage,
But yet have no chains.
I have free reign to wander anywhere inside.
Never being able to escape these horrifying emotions of pain.
I can't believe myself anymore.
What did I ever do to watch all of my revenue,
And watch it slip down the drain?
I hate myself.
But most of all,
I hate you.
You guided that key to trigger a lock;
Hard to break.
Hard to make undone.
You crafted it so perfectly,
That even the wisest would fall.
It's beauty made the earth stumble
And enable a newly found jealousy.
What a stupid,
Useless,
Piece of metal.
Used to be purposeful,
But only misused by its own owner.
Just looking at it makes me sick.
How could I only see the outside?
When the inside was only rusting,
To ruin everything else.
You weren't worth my eyes.
Worth my time..
You weren't worthy of me.
And you will never be.
