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.

Fantastic ending... as love can prison one, that is so true, and well said.
Once free, and out of the cage, will double give meaning to life and life's living
Without looking more back, and I know there is hope for any of us... ;)
Such a ray of sadness, but that well captured, I enjoyed your wording.
Deep brilliance.

Thank you so much most appreciated.
should be "love's rope"

but this is quite a write...a bit of maya angelou...."i know why the caged bird sings"

because you want it to sing...but much better if it sings because it knows it is free to love you or not...

clipping wings is not such a good thing.

this poem, on the other hand, is.

you are so good with subtle rhyme...

Thanks, Jacob for spotting error will fix. Also for the thoughtful review.
Thank you kindly!
In fact,we are all like the caged bird.
Sometimes,it may be literal while at other time it is symbolic in meaning.
Lost our freedom either by tricks or by conspiracy.
In your case,you are imprisoned by the cage of love.
It sounds better than the other types I have mentioned above.
Wherever we live,we have to bear this captive life.
Wonderfully penned,talented poet.
Congratulations!!!

You are most welcome.
Appreciate your wonderful poem.
Take care
the most difficult lesson of love is the one where you have to let them go ...

and if you can , a light glows - and one understands the true love - unconditional love
