But You GrewMature

I thought it would be easy

To escape your iron grasp

But you had planted toxic seeds in my chest

That grew, and grew, and grew

 

I thought it would be easy

To find freedom from your bondage

But you sprouted in my heart

And grew, and grew, and grew

 

I thought it would be easy

To rid myself of your lies

But you grew roots around my ribcage

That grew, and grew, and grew

 

I thought it would be easy

to untangle myself from you

But you blossomed around my collar bone

And grew, and grew, and grew

 

I thought it would be easy

To become the girl I used to be

But the more I fought you the more you grew

And grew, and grew, and grew

The End
