That place with padded walls a
To be at the hands of cruelty....
To be thrown at the mercy
Of those who had none....
It was my life
The existence you rescued me from
You are my savior
Without you I am nothing
As you have discreetly purloined my heart
Without you, my love
I would wither like a dandelion in the desert
When I am with you, I am an orchid
Frail, but blessed with the utmost beauty
No longer am I a nagging weed...
No longer a useless parasite
A precious orchid
You complete me
You are the cherry to my sundae...
You never let me fall apart
Never let me be blown away by the frigid winds of life
You saved that little part of me that can still feel
The part that is fragile as an orchid
And for that, I love you
You keep me here
You give me will to keep trudging through this wretched swamp we call America
You saved the part of me that can still hurt
The part that is as tender as a sickly orchid
And for that I hate you
Is this love?
I want to keep the smiles, and erase the rest with a numbing pill....
Will you be my pill?
I won't make it without you...
I'm not as strong as you..
Not good enough for you
I'm as vulnerable as an orchid in the frozen north.....
Could you be my pill?
"Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage."
