A Latched Heart.. - Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi

I know you are waiting outside,
You can’t open my heart with your false pride,
You may have the right key and the password,
You may have the legal card to swipe,
You might have used the cheap tactics,
of psychological defects, not feed me enough,
cut off my allowance, force me to work as a bull,
collecting my salary and perks,
chasing me to the limits of patience,
To price open this secured heart,
You may not know the facts of life,
When your lies pushed that latch slight,
From inside, you were not aware of it,
Your lies and hypocrisy latched my heart,
From inside, I know you are waiting outside,
Holding your legal key tight, but you don’t,
Know your lies have latched my heart from inside.
