In the Cage

Don’t move towards happiness,

So thoughtlessly,


Step outside,

Without me,

Don’t lean in the direction of your own true heart,

Without my blessing,

Without my curse,

I can’t let you get within an inch of yourself,

I’ve spent so long nurturing your world,

All the freedom I can’t set free of its cage,

This cage of routine, reliability,

I need to possess you,

For I do not own myself,

When you spread your wings,

How could you fly without me?

How could you smile into the sunlight?

Leaving me to despair,

I’m not jealous,

It’s just so lonely in here.
