Return

Return

Time had come
to face the past
Having left long ago
to follow a dream
this return, the last
 
Running away
gave her life breath
The needed space
to exist in freedom
Or die a slow death
 
The gates of hell
Her captor in darkness
Controlling the mind
Robbing thoughts
Living in starkness
 
Escaping the torture
Where her mind resisted
Beyond the morbid prison
Of her own invention
Learning love existed
 
The triumphant return
A celebration of the soul
Liberated from captivity
Living now free, having crawled
from the black hole
