He said, as he ran towards the room

Panicking within, tearing anew

Asking to stay, as she tried to leave

It was not his fault, that he made her feel insecure

He said a few words that made her shed duress

Now she runs back to them, when she finds herself struggling

She is afraid from change, as she cowers in fear

Of working every day to conquer her fears

She blames it on him, as it comes easy without a price

He doesnt ask her to stay, as he is still hurting inside, he asks her to leave to go find it infact

She has left the room, pretending to act strong

She blames herself too much, she never stands strong

She bends to the will, that was taught to her then

The will that he tried to break, and tear within

A shackle of her own making, she frets

Back into the cage that made her a feigned creature

To hide herself from what presents as a choice

To free herself from the freedom he inspires

She acts with anxiety, sees change as a threat, as she is not ready to accept

Time will come at her own choice, one day if she decides to listen to the points he made

Until then she will be enslaved by her own desires, as she is a slave to her ownself
