Her Strength

My leash gets heavier as the days pass
How long will this bondage last?
My heart gets smaller as the days go by
How long will you continue to lie?
You said that you built an empire for me
You thought I wasn't listening
You said it as if I was your Queen
You never once let me enjoy this thing

Your empty promises made me cry
I didn't think that you would lie
And In the moments when I wanted to die
You encouraged me to take my life
You never had real feelings for me
You were in love with the feel of me
In love with the idea of me
My realness, my depth, you couldn't see

You treated me like I was nothing
I was too generous and too loving
You often took advantage
Now I'm broken and un-bandaged
Thank you for your pain
I nearly drowned in the shame
I danced in your rain
And I'll walk through the flames
