cutting you loose

like the edge of a trench knife
my mind gets sharpened
with every barbed remark
my hard won breath is quickened
around every choreographed lie
my war torn heart strings rip

free

from all the control
my words flee, take flight
against all the memories
my bright future shall fight on
while putting to peaceful rest
my near-forgotten dreams  

(you)
