Chains

Chains

Austin Llewellyn
Spring 2019

I hope to be a thought on your mind
That you can’t block out
Entertaining the mind
I wish I could rewind
I’ll sever the ties
Like you severed my heart
You raised me from the dead
Just to rip me apart
You knew you had your grip
So you danced to your own song
And played with my heart strings
Like a marionette
I danced right to the beat
Oblivious to what was happening
You raised me from my grave
Just to make me dance
To your own song
Have you read these words?
You know they’re about you
Somehow it took so long to get through
My head that you were the cause
Of so many debts
How can I repay you?
Revenge is too boring
And words are too easy
I hope you grasp what I’m trying to tell you
Do you know what it’s like
To be made a fool by someone you love?
Just imagine
Being torn apart
From the inside out as you explode all of your emotions
Onto a paper that will never see the light of day
I hope you feel the chain
Because I’m about to break it
