You stifle me, like candles cased in glassy prisons
warped by expectation.
But see how my light shines through and dances in your eyes;
stand close enough and feel my warmth
radiate beyond your treasured cell.
And once my soul reforms
know I will break free;
confinement denounced to a pile of bitter shards
ready to pave my way towards liberty
and cut you if you dared to follow.
