The caged bird's last song

The caged bird's last song

A Poem by Lacey

This one is a bit strange, yet it was an expression of my truth. Leaving a damaging relationship and falling into another that became amazing is the moral of the story.

Being with him was like saying a word until it loses meaning, it became too much for me to handle, I lost myself in the pain, as he turned love into  scandal.
Being afraid of the loneliness didn't keep me, I felt alone for so long, when I got the strength to walk away, I ran until I was gone.
I took shelter in another man's arms, he held me so tight, like fixing a bird's wing, he kept me until I could take flight.
Unlike a bird, I didn't want to fly away, I fell in love again, so I decided to stay.
The one who broke my wings, damn near broke me, wants me to come back, he must be crazy.
I built something new, gave my heart a rest, I will never go back, this bird has a new nest.

I've been writing for years and never shared one poem publicly. I'm not trying to accomplish anything by doing this, I'm just joining to be inspired by others, or maybe someone will be inspired by me.. more..
