A monster came in the shape of a man
and promised me a better land
of freedom and joy and success of my own,
and somewhere I could call my home.
It wasnt long before I saw
the selfishness behind it all.
All the tender fragile lies,
my life was drained before my eyes.
Every time I neared escape
he suddenly would change his shape,
and where the monster once had stood
a man was now, full of good.
A long long time I floated there,
the limbo 'tween joy and despair,
trapped by chains of empty vows,
lost inside the here and now.
Finally I then was freed,
though not without increasing need
to find a path through endless mist,
to show someone that I exist.
An angel came in the shape of a man,
and made my world a better land.
He showed me the freedom I had all along,
and gave me a home in his world full of song.
And though I kept trying to find
a reason that he’d change his mind,
a darker thought behind the sweet,
a reason such a man would cheat,
though I searched I never found
a reason why he’d let me drown,
and every day he proved to me
that he could see all I could be.
Eventually my fears did pass,
my mind was clearer than the glass,
allowing me to accept the love,
the love that I’d been dreaming of.
The love I thought was only in books,
a fantasy of loving looks,
of being someones everything
and the joy that love could bring.
I hope to god that I dont lose
the angel that I’ll always choose
to spend forever with him near,
the reason that my eyes are clear.
