Caged Heart

Caged Heart

A Poem by MOON

 

 

It did not matter my voice had no sound

You took love's rope and around me you wound

You captured my heart with a serpent sting

Taught me the caged bird’s song and how to sing

 

Then you placed all your sorrows on my face

All you loved about me you laid to waste

So I could be emptied of who I am

Looked at me said all I was, was a sham

 

Then still you had to deal just one more card

That you would grant me like a piercing dart

On a dawn full of promise you would go

That was your last hurrah your final blow

 

Obsession still my iron fisted glove

Days still I am imprisoned by your love

They cage the bird. They tell it that it does not deserve freedom. They make the bird believe it deserves its fate. They clip the birds wings so that it can never escape. The tell the bird to sing out for their amusement. And the worst part, they manipulate the birds mind to make them think it was their choice. Then they leave and go about their life and tell you to fly. But how can the bird ever really escape until it grows new wings? It can't. It takes a long time to heal from that. Many days are spent in that prison waiting.

I have been in that cage. It is not a place I would wish upon anyone. Personally, this poem speaks to me very deeply. You have done a masterful job of giving a voice to a hurting bird. Wonderful work, dear Moon.

Your description of being trapped by love is beautifully written. It can be suffocating and ruin you at times.

"You captured my heart with a serpent sting"

To say I haven't felt that way would be a lie. Very nicely penned.

Thank you for the review , appreciate, take care!
Ah, words I understand well. My heart was once caged by a devious person, bent on destroying all that I was. And my heart still beats for only him. Its a very complex, twisted feeling but you described it so well. Nicely done!

Whoa...Oh, no. Not again!

You are a master of the "flow." I think you've cured my tendency to ramble on in reviews.
Powerful and fluid, both I've read...Sadly, it's 3:30am, but I'll be back for more.

Imprisoned by love...what a lovely and painful thought all at the same time. I feel the dedication and emotion, and also the imprisonment. A nice juxtaposition. Well done.

Thanks so much for the lovely review. Take care!
ohh so sad how we become prisoners of our lovers, but its great if we are caged in abubble of that so tender and gentle love. but on the contrary this poem shows us how everything can go all bad and things turn round, what seemed like love goes to torture... i hate it when we are manipulated mainly us girls fall victims to this. loved this poem, its the voice of those voiceless girls out there, more so those caged birds.

This was a wonderful poem. The last two lines really seal the emotion up tightly. The sadness and the pain are felt greatly here. The words speak of the truth of a longing heart. You expressed this piece well.
