I used to see you in the shadows,
Smirking devilishly at me with the thought that you could control me.
If I dared to show any signs of weakness to you,
I would feel your grip on my shoulders as you whispered you can't and you won't softly into my ear.
Instead of being hindered by you I learned from you.
You begged me to give into my every negative thought and feeling,
But I simply used my thoughts and feelings as a source of power.
Your you can't became my I can.
You still linger around me,
As I know you'll truly never leave.
When I think of you now I remember that you were once my weakness in the shadows,
But now you are my strength in the light.
