the cage


there is a cage

she’s trapped inside

why is she behind bars

i reach through

to hold on to her

she takes my hands

i try to open the door

but it’s locked

i hear the guard

rattle the keys

she backs away

i’ll set you free

i’m gonna get you out

i lean in to hear

she says she loves me

my hands are shaky

she holds on tightly

don’t worry

the guards take her away

the one in the cage is me


cage door
