you took away two years of my life.
i was locked inside the confines of your walls
and weighed down by a sense of hopelessness.
i fought with every breath to be free of your chains.
it was a war against myself and i came out victorious
despite the fact that some battles never truly end.
somedays there’s still a tightness in my chest.
a following spark of panic that sends every red flag
it can until finally a white flag is surrendered.
it flourishes in the company of a pounding heart.
latches onto the surge of adrenaline that bundles up
my nerves like a ball of yarn with no knowledge of knitting.
the difference is that you’re no longer in control.
and no matter how many cameos you decide to
make, i will never allow you to imprison my life again.
