Trapped behind glass,
Breath is constricted by the smudge of emotion,
Words distorted by love that hurts.
I wish my happiness was not such a barrier for you,
I wish we could be happy together,
I wish for the joy from my childhood.
I wish the woman I knew from years ago,
Could still come and comfort me, kiss me, chide me.
Instead this shadow of haunted dreams,
That you seem determined to become
I wish this hadn't been my creation and that you were free to have been that in the first place.
The first place being before I was born.
I wish I could free you,
I can't help you,
I do love you.
