Locked Away

Encased the heart in a leaden box
Wrapped it tight with a chain
Locked it tight with a padlock
Now to destroy the key.

Forever more the heart is safe
No more pain or deceit
No more breaking when they leave
No more the joy of love

Encased the mind within a web
No longer will there be thought
Now nothing can cause the pain
Now there will be no worry
For now the mind has no care
It seeks no love or bonding

Lost the will to seek a life
Lost the need to care
Now the body just exists
No emotion to get in the way.
