this photo is not my own.

I was being suffocated

physically, mentally, and emotionally

being locked in this cage

I could no longer breathe

I wanted nothing more than to be free

the one who was supposed to make me feel like I could fly

cut off my wings

leaving me motionless

you are the root of my destruction

this is not love
