Was it a figment of my imagination that he smiled at me?
Did he notice I blushed becomingly?
Did I see what I wanted to see?
Was it the truth or dishonesty?
Whatever it was, I was foolish and lost my heart
Sucked in by deceit from the very start,
Too proud and stubborn to pack and depart,
Spiraling deeper into the dark.
As the years passed on by, I grew bitter and cold,
Crushed and confused, I was suddenly old,
Expected to do only what I was told
I felt my soul to the devil was sold.
One night I was lonely, unloved and I played
My musical favourites once gladly displayed,
The tears fell quite freely, I was not dismayed,
Ideas and a plan for my freedom were laid.
That figment of light from a far distant place,
The pleasure to feel its warmth on my face,
Lifted up from the shadows by a Heavenly Grace
Embraced me back into the human race.
