About Me

I am a Bird

 feather, illusion, light, wing, woman
I am a bird inside your cage
And you don't want to hear my song
Though you appear to be watching
For the things that could go wrong
With the plans that you've made
You're so transfixed by my wings
That you've clipped so I won't try
To escape the awful things
that you say and want to do
To make me feel I have no choice
But to sit in front of you
So all alone without my voice
I am a bird inside this cage
And I have lost my winsome song
That I sang so long ago
For the one who is now gone
He is a shadow upon my wall
A dark foreboding misery
Where he has wandered
I cannot tell you
I'll never solve the mystery
