Itching to get out
Itching to break free
So scared I'll be here for eternity

It's lonely in here
The air is too thin
My thoughts are all cramped on the head of a pin

You try to come in
I peek out the doors
I've already fallen prey to this beast-
No more.

Someone should have warned you
I'm hopeless, stay back,
My heart hates change and courage I lack.

So I sit here itching
And eyeing the lock
Rotting in this cage-
and yet, you knock.
