One of these days I will sleep.
Until then I will work and wait for the day I am free.
I don’t dream of a rescue anymore, no where I want to be.
Nowhere, I trust you to take me.
Here, in this quite outpost a million miles away from you.
I stay alone, but I can be me.
No one to call me a liar or to praise my good deeds.
Just me and my demons dancing by the fire, pretending to be free.
We may lack sleep or your loving embrace, but here we are naked without inhibition.
Away from your dark world, where survival is victory.
Slander my name, defame me to your hearts content, but alone at night that feeling you can’t describe, that is me.
You say I ran away and didn’t fight, Defeating the one’s I love is no victory, to me.
