Poem -



Staying isn't a choice I make, it's something I have to do
Taking everything I love, as if it belongs to you
Every one thinks I'm crazy, you're the perfect man indeed
Taking me in so long ago, providing me what I need
No one knows what you really are except for you and me
Turning me into the girl you needed me to be
Now here I sit alone, underneath your thumb
Back then I was a little girl, I was young and dumb
Now that I am older, I'm planning my escape
You aren't any hero underneath your cape
