Woman In Chains - Poem by William F Glennon

You close your eyes, only to deny the truth behind the lies.
Captive in an emotional prison waiting for hope to decide.

Put your heart away and see you're really to blame.
Put your love aside, you feel guilty the same.

Do you close your eyes and see us tomorrow or see just a memory?
You have your life and I have mine. Maybe I am blind or you just won't see.

You have a need; I want your need, so much I'm losing me.
To be the one you want has taken me to places I never thought I would be.

Hope must decide, is this my sunset?
Hiding in a shadow waiting for me to
face this emotional regret.

You tell me everything, but show me nothing.
Making excuses to see one another was always denial.
Yet I still linger and hope one day we'll go that
extra mile.

Our lives may not be connected.
Our hearts and mind silently affected.
I cannot pretend I'm not alone.
We are closer to the end of the feeling I've
known all along.
