Releasing the Bird

He’ll never say the things I so wish him to say
He’ll never tell, if my leaving caused him pain

But, he left me.  That, I can’t forget
Left the cage door open, no longer his pet

“Spread your wings and fly my love. Be well”
That’s the end, there’s nothing else to tell

His void is felt deep within
I miss his smell on my skin

No way of knowing if he misses me
All I know, is he set me free

And as far as I fly and as I high as I go
my heart will surely miss him so

He opened my eyes to something new
to something in me I never knew

He started the fire, he blew on my flame
He called me his baby each time that I came

He showed me a life that I know I deserve
But his was on loan, all rights “reserved”

I know what I want now, I know what I need
I will no longer beg for it, no longer plead

This birds been released and it’s bound to explore
Never to settle for the life lived before

But know this my love, in my heart you will stay
And I will think of you less with each passing day

I will miss you  immensely  this I already do
But, it was time to let me go, you already knew.

I love you sweet man and I hope you love me
I’ll be back some day and I hope you’ll be ready.

    Exactly the post-breakup emotion. Nice to read though. Optimism. 🙂

    nice metaphor, bird, used and releasing/freeing — this is the rationalized reconciliation that optimism uses for a ladder, to ascend from that base despair, heartbreak. lovely rhyme and rhythm here.
    good piece, job well done.

      Thank you very much Tink
      I have lost all optimisim for any future with this man at this point but. I think just saying that is in itself Optimistic.

    a war has to have two companies,

    what a powerful fire at the troubled relationship.
    well done.

    Happy Poetry Picnic.

      Mr Watson.
      Thank you for your nice comment. He never came to his senses. But, What can I say, maybe that was a good thing.

    This poem was so empowering to read until I got to the last two stanzas. So often we let go of the chains that hold us down only to pick them up again. But that is what makes us human, and that is how the story goes. Beautiful written, LoLa! xoXox

    I remember feeling like this; it does pass. It really does. Your poem captures the raw emotions so well.
