# Post 9 ( (Singing) Caged Birds )

by ThisIsShe|Mags



She sang to me
I sang to her,
We sang together –
No cords were heard.

We sang for us
We sang for them,
We sang for innocence
Lost in beds.

But when the notes
Rang from afar
Its strings pulled



Of my heart.

I couldn’t pitch
A bad one line
That wanted throats
To intertwine.

She sang again
But now with gust –

That left me mute
Stretched and strong
With dreams of dusk
And flights at dawn.
