My Jail Cell - Poem by Rachel L. Z.
You locked me up
You threw me into your world
Removing me from everything else
Isolating me from all that's proper and right
I wasn't happpy, clearly
I didn't talk
I didn't smile
That angered you
You'd yell at me to be kind
The epitome of hipocracy
You'd ask if you could do anything
Anything at all to make me happy
I'd beg you to set me free
'That's not an option.'
Always your cruel reply
'Anything else? '
What do you want me to say?
Oh, yes, everything will be just fine if you
Buy me an iPod
That's all I need
I can forgive everything you've ever done,
The manipulative guilt trips you've lead me on,
The friends you've torn away,
The wedges you've driven between me
And everyone I love
I will forget it all
You don't even need to apologize
Just buy me stuff
Every ounce of trust of I've ever placed on you
You have let fallen
And shatter on the ground
I cannot believe anything you tell me
I don't love you
The only thing you can possibly do
To allow me to maybe,
Maybe hold the tiniest grain of
Respect for you,
Is to let me go
Yet you refuse
So every day I sit
Rotting away in my jail cell
Watching you snicker at me
From behind the bars
My hate for you grows stronger
But you insist on telling me you love me
You want me to be happy
