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.

This is so touching; it pulls at the heart and evokes memories of feeling like a prisoner to love, to someone who has thrown away the key to your heart,and does not want it.

Absolutely , how often we imprison by love even though it hurts
rather than heals. Thanks read more

Many thanks
Take care
the object of this very intrusive subjective thing that brought you to the realms of this release doesn't deserve such pain in your beautiful rhythm it's right on cue with what you want to say, in a heart beating the love now fading so fast....great piece

Bravo, magnifico, bloody brilliant.

Obsessions, addictions, fetishes. That capture, they dwell, reside, eat from the inside. Often leaving the obsessed, addicted, the phile (suffix), filling empty, alone, wrong or even ashamed.

This piece is exquisite in rhythm and word selection.

Taught me the caged birds song.

Absolutely love it. Wonderful work.

Thank you so much .
Take care
Not a lot of heartbreak poems really capture the sorrow of it, but this one certainly did. You had just the right amount of anger lanced in with sadness to really make me feel it. As always the way you worded this was beautiful.
