Elaborate stories build a prison;
Brick by brick they build the walls
To cage me in a reputation,
My heart evicted from my home.
The chains of lies have captured me
And I am lost to society,
Another fallen heart forgotten,
Another cross to shame the hills.
Why did you choose to place my heart
Upon the altar of your pride?
You had my love as your companion,
But placed a halter on my wings.
I do not understand how pride
Could be more precious than a friend,
But maybe Iím too gullible
To see how vicious pride can be.
And now I know how it would feel
To be a bird whose wings are clipped;
My heart was shattered by your actions,
Your choice of words has caged me in.
And now I know how it can feel
To have my back carved with a knife;
To have a friend give an embrace
Then crank the rack to torture me.
