Ropes On My Limbs

I can't stop my body
From absorbing other people's emotions
And it punishes me for being an empath
I despise my body for failing me
I never feel right anymore.
I always feel broken and wounded
I am tired of crying and open wounds
No place to hide from pain
Only worse in my dreams
I just want to find a peaceful place
Where I can love and grow old
With plants and cats around me
I know I will never be free
But, maybe one day I will not
Feel the ropes on my limbs
