Once asked, you responded 

All the if's and but's didn't matter 

Afraid of your own shadow 

You gave in 

To my state of confusion 

Like a bird in a cage 

Squeezing your head through the metal bars 

In illusion

Made your perfectly shaped face

You're my dreamy distraction 

Perfect attraction

And I'm riding you like a wild beast rides its sanity 

Gone in a cloud of judgement 

Hovering above my fragility 

And stability of mind

Like a mad scientist I laugh 

Grotesquely 

And vaguely push you back where you belong 

In a cage with metal bars 

You call it mind control 

I call it insanity
