Cage

CTYF2POOT3One day he will take a good look at you,
And tell you that you’d look more beautiful
If you lost a few pounds
That’s when you will realize
That heartbreak doesn’t always roar

Sometimes it comes in quiet waves
Of comment after comment, veiled thinly in feigned concern
Because the worst anyone can ask you is to change who you are

One day he will take a closer look at you
And tell you that your dress is too tight
That’s when you will realize
That a cage isn’t always made up of bars

Sometimes it’s just his hands
Gripping yours more tightly

One day you will take a good look at him
And you will realize that sometimes
The reasons why love blossoms
Are the same ones why it ends
