Iron Cage Birdhouse

Iron Cage Birdhouse

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

A puzzle is a puzzle and it’s puzzling to be

Caught up in the yarn as it winds around me

Tighter and tighter, ‘til it hurts just to breathe

What is this thing that I’m trying to see? 

 

Weaving and weaving around every thought

Yarn turned to chains, rust turned to wrought

Iron cage birdhouse in which I am caught

Dreaming of dreams which cannot be bought 

 

A puzzle is a puzzle and it’s puzzling for sure

To be bound by a puzzle for which there’s no cure

Struggling and struggling, thoughts dirty and pure

This heart is a puzzle ~ I cannot endure 

 

Solutions, solutions, solutioning me

Here is the answer, so clearly to see

The thing my heart needs - it never can be

So I’ll rip out my heart, to set my mind free 

 

A puzzle is a puzzle but for me is no longer

I’ve ripped out my heart, now my mind is much stronger

Free from the thoughts bound by yarn and by chain

So that now I may breathe without feeling the pain

The heart was never intended for heavy duty use and multi tasking all those slings and arrows from fates fickle hand AND keeping the circulation going. Personally, that kinda feels like a friday, 3pm job, where the production lines mind was already on that first beer of the weekend.
And what is its only protection? A ribCAGE. Someone was having a laugh at our expense methinks.
It's best in a box Ana, preferably made from that black box stuff and with an alphabetic keypad, so you can just type in a random password of gibberish, copy and paste it, so not even you know its password.
Yes, I may be extreme, but who on earth is gonna guess Zylgymgylt46c? 😀

Ps... Ooh! Damn!

Only love gone wrong can rip the heart out, and most unpleasant that feeling is too. You don't have to do it yourself, there's plenty out there capable and willing to do it for ya Ana. You need a heart of steel to survive unscathed.

So very true Chris. Thanks for popping in to read this one
I replaced the parts I had to cut out with chocolate ones.
It didn't work out as badly as you might assume!
Doctor's visits are pretty interesting now, at least.

It's probably better that way I think.
many have tried your solution of dissolutions but im afraid just as many find it's just an illusion:( I should know i've been steadily keeping my heart in seclusion but it has a way of breaking thru in in rude intrusions and now I have to get regular transfusions of poetic infusions:) this is wonderful poetry dear Papaya I really liked this one!

Hi Bunny, thanks for reaching in to find this one. :)

the girls sure got rhythm so who in their write mind is gonna worry about the bondage issue.. her other fantasies would more than make up for any minor discomfort.. and anyway she aint going anywhere except round the bend...

I imagine a quest for freedom and or answers.. A page full of intrigue and suspenders Ana, or am I reading ya right...

That is a nicely selected offering all well done with good flow and a pleasure to read,
Just wondering if ripping out the heart might be a tad extreme
Just saying
And a pleasant good morn A Papaya

Ha! Maybe a tad extreme. I mean, why do it yourself when you can get someone else to do it for you.. read more

Love the flow and rhyming of this Ana. Reads as if you've become a tough ol' bird after the knocks and setbacks endured over the years, but I know that ain't true :))
Hope you are all keeping well. Good morning

You are welcome! It was a really great write!
You should maybe use twine and less psychopaths. Good luck with that.
