AWAKE

For a long time I breathed your fire.
I spoke the words you whispered in my ears.
I loved the people you had set your heart on.
I feared the darkness that you had made your enemy.
I tried to shine in the light of your smile.
But now I realize I was wrong.
Your words hurt my thoughts
Your love pushed my people away
Your fear made me hate the nights I would cherish
And your smile can never compare to my moonlight.
I realize now it’s time for me to build my own fire
It’s time for me to step away from your fantasy into my dream.
