I stole myself away.
They didn’t know how strangled I felt.
The umbilical chord still attached
wrapped tightly round my neck.
I didn’t mean to hurt anyone or put fear in their hearts.
I wanted freedom, I wanted a new start.
I said goodbye to only a few
not the ones that mattered.
I wrenched a heart, that was easy to claim.
He kept his promise, but cried all night.
I didn’t realize the pain I had caused
when setting my pain free.
I wanted freedom, an apartment and
of course my own key.
I was missing, no where to be found.
I was happy, delirious with joy, while
they were crying, worried and scared.
I had no idea, I didn’t care. I was free.
Was I alone? Well I’ll never tell.
I went missing, they were in hell.
Do I regret it? I guess in some ways.
I wish there had been, a better way
