Freewriting Day 5: Take Me Back

Take me back to the place before the guilt and shame

Take me me back to the time my heart was tender

Take me back to the place before I was deceived by the lies
Take me back 

Take me back to the time when I was open
Before I was closed off
Before I put up walls

Take me back to the time when things were simple
Wish I could play some days over and over again

Take me back to the time when I was free
Nothing holdin' me
Take me back

Take me back 
Pull me in
Into the deep waters of life again

Take me back to the life of the livin'
Where we gave more than we took

Holding hands and helping each other
Smiling, laughing
Loving tenderly

Take me back to the time I knew myself
Before the mirror got murky
Before the joy dissipated from me

Take me back
I never want to leave
I want to put down roots that can't be shaken

I'm tired of running
Tired of running from myself
Not sure what I've been looking for
But I didn't find it

Not in fame
Not in fortune
Not in fairytales

Take me to the place where hope abides
Take me to the place where love springs forth
I wanna be better
I wanna know myself more

Take me back
