You want to do something different ? Well that’s understandable (stupid,!)
Why do you think you could do that when I keep you safely imprisoned
In the box disguised as somewhere you might flourish, when you learn…
To leave yourself behind and become the dutiful copy I desire?
His expression straining against impatience
Like a wild animal fighting in his own soft features
That hide so well the steel cage lying behind the twisted smile (grimace)
Slowly explaining to her what she’s wanted for, expected to be.
Don’t be ridiculous how can you expect to obtain happiness
You don’t get it do you?
Life is not about happy just existing, coasting with occasional sunshine
But happy , happy
And he laughs to ensure she feels small enough
To keep in the box like a forgotten toy , used sometimes
Cruelly and briefly to his satisfaction
He hasn’t seen that look in her eyes as her mind numbs to his laughter
She smiles to herself and he thinks it’s at him
But her plans for escape have just begun to take shape
How she doesn’t know but she will break out of the box
