Unlocked, Set Free - Poem by The Queen's Dagger

This time,
I run away freely.
Soaring on wings
just like a bird.

Last time,
it wasn't so easy.
You trapped me
in a cage,
behind the bars
of my own regret.
My pain,
burning my insides.
My heart,
bursting of it's own accord.
My love,
turned to violent hate.

Then someone found the missing key,
the one to unlock the door
of my eternal prison.
He let me out,
he came for me.

I buried my face in his shirt,
and cried for hours.
All the while,
he comforts me.
Stroking my hair
and holding me tight,
promising never to leave.
