Cave Bird

 

I know a place
Where wings don’t fly
And honey flows in dreams
The sun is placed behind bars
Where darkness feels right
Comfort, the life
Dead comfort

There is a bird
That lives inside a cave
Oblivious of love
Or the flowers
That give colour to breath

She wants a life
In a desert with no sun
For caves are rid of clouds
And a sky
But alive with obese fright
Reeling with disquiet mutism

The place where love lives
Is beyond the clouds
Beyond trees and their leaves
Beyond lightning, above the sun

The place where life lives
Is not in caves
Nor caged egos
It is in flying wings
That break free from self doubt
