TRAPPED

I see your face through the window pane

the glass is cracked and your image is blurred.

Even from this distance, 

I see your pain and I wonder if my tears my heard.

This window frame surrounds my dreams,

 the pane conceals my pain.


It seems as if the seams around this glass

get stronger everyday.

Keeping me away from the one thing

 that makes my life worth living.

  You on the outside,  

Staring at me on the inside.

 Reaching through this foggy view,

It's hard to see,  it hurts to know

we can't mingle, For there was a veil!


I'm trapped in here, you're waiting out there.

It's clear to us that fate don't care.

I'm trapped by these walls and you can't get in.

Unfortunately, I can see You, my destiny,

 but we can't begin.


You've tried to break through,

I've tried to break out.

I scream your name,

as you stand there in the might of Your creations

I need you in here, I long for Your touch.

All this pain, of Self Inflicted Nonsense!

It's just TOO MUCH!


I'm trapped in here, I've hindered You out there.

It's clear to us that fate don't care.

I'm trapped by these walls and you can't get in.

Unfortunately, I can see my destiny,

 But we can't begin.


I can't take this, not one more day,

our love is too strong, there must be a way.

So, we're standing here, face to face,

eyes locked through the window pane.


Suddenly, the Veil is torn!

You did it! 

You raise your hands up to mine

 and we smash that glass one last time.

Slowly, it starts to splinter down

and all the shards fall to the ground.


Now, we're trapped together,

 In each other's arms.

Trapped forever, away from harm.

Trapped in love for all time,

 Trapped in love within our hearts.

Fortunately, I've found my Lover,

 Now we can start.


Inspired  by  (Face to Face), a song by Theophilus Sunday.
