Caged

#Challenge Friday – Caged

 

Beat down and trained

You no longer had to force me
into your unforgiving cage

You trapped me intellectually
and fed my hungry trusting heart

I let you peek inside of my soul
you merged with my mind, then tore it apart

I wasn’t everything you needed

and so the starving began

As I was slowly backed up into a corner

not allowed to acknowledge or take a stand

You let your ravenous pet draw blood
and tear my loyal skin to shreds

Never defending or protecting

Only writing me off

as if I were dead
