The Loving Cup

You thought your life
belonged on a stage.
Then you slowly realised
it should have been a cage.
To prevent you from
inflicting further damage
to the ones already savaged.
Their feelings
never mattered to you.
All of concern
was that they paid their due.
They should have left
a long time ago.
But their love for you
they could never forgo.
It is time for you to
wake up and to
take a sip from their loving cup.
