Caged hearts


never at rest
her mind orbiting the earth
chasing the sun relentlessly
in search of a spark of inspiration

she knows the words
but she hides her heart

crumpled paper
catching flame in the fire

caged birds can never fly

caged hearts can never write

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
