Rookie (19-06-1969 / Adelaide - Australia)


Me and Miss. C. - This means that i is actually we!
A child when we first met,
We have never been apart,
At least not yet.
I wished for you to be my strength,
To guard my heart from any sadness, hurt, or pain,
These emotions i would never feel again.
In front of me behind me and always by my side,
I became lost somewhere deep inside.
You lead and chose our direction,
Now detached from feeling pain,
Meant also love i would never gain.
You made all choices wrong or right,
My heart you guarded day and night.
It grew dark within these walls,
I gave you the key to close me in,
My screams would never be heard from within.
This prison was my creation,
Built with no way to enter also meant no light to see,
These walls began to close in and suffocate me.
The child i was i locked away,
Taken from the life which lay ahead,
Now alone trapped and lost instead.
All i wanted was a hand to hold,
When life became too sad, alone and cold.
What became of you Miss. C.?
I want your strenght to leave my side,
I need to now live and no longer hide.
The walls which now trap me and my heart,
Slowly they begin to fall,
I want my life - i want it all.
I hate the way you make me feel,
The anger and the lack of control,
I need all emotions to become whole.
A life detached from feeling,
Has left me blind without direction,
Unable to accept true love and affection.
This is where we say goodbye,
This is where we part Miss. C.
This is where we become just ME! !
