He tried to smother her spirit, because he was afraid her voice would carry
He wanted to own her, so he asked her to marry
He thought I’ll manipulate her, convince her my way is the only way
And assert his mental control

And in her love, she followed, losing her mind and soul

His love was a projection, an expectation, that only went in one direction
She was rewarded if she complied but made to feel guilty if she denied
It wasn’t all bitter, there were certainly plenty of happy times

But her voice longed to carry, leading to their demise

He set out to crush her ego, to leave her nowhere to go
For many years, she laid dormant, conforming to his dreams
And for many years, her spirit continually screamed

It wanted to be released, respected, and to see a renewal of self esteem
