Freeing the Criminal

Freeing the Criminal (Inspired by Criminal by Fiona Apple)

You’re the criminal who has been jailed inside my heart.
Locked with ball and chain, I’ve kept you hidden inside.

I thought keeping you will make me blissful and glad.
Nope. I’m just like a lone warrior waging a foolish fight.

So come out now, my prisoner. I’ll accept my lost.
Letting you go is better for me, first and foremost.

      1. Most welcome!! PS–I looked, but didn’t see a Sunday Songs post at your place. I’ll look again, as I don’t want to miss adding your link to mine…but it’s possible you just got overwhelmed with too many tasks!! 🙂

  1. Yes, sometimes letting go is far better than holding on. Brilliant as always. I’ll need a dictionary soon to come up with new words. Or maybe, I’ll just make up my own 😀

  2. To let go is the best way and best thing you can do ever… If the person loves you, they will surely come back… But yes, sometimes it becomes too late to realise that we need to let it go!

    Amazing one, Rosema ❤ ❤ ❤
