Destiny Killian

I thought I’d be
your pretty bride-to-be
not the madwoman
in the prison of my thoughts
where you
abandoned me
Shush, a dirty little secret
is swept up in the attic
a memento of a past
that longed to be forgotten
Better not tell
your darling little bird
She might not look so kindly
at her master
once she sees his cruelty
An animal in a cage
kept for your own amusement
Sad woman, bad woman
What am I to the world
to you
What am I to do
with all this rage left inside
Don’t remind me of how I once
loved you, you liar
Passion sparks my soul
my heart is ablaze
I’ll set this whole world
on fire
