There’s nothing here, it’s empty
but it’s freedom from that torment
the walls are unbreakable
In here she is safe.
Outside there’s an echo,
a pull back to reality
I can feel her try to leave me
I pull her back to where she’s safe
because I won’t let it penetrate here,
this is shelter from that sentence
she must remain in my refuge
here I will keep her safe.
One day she desires her freedom
she must see I can’t let her go now
she needs this place, we both do
here we are safe.
This once her haven
she now says is our prison,
she takes my hand and leads me
I realise together we are safe.
