Siren Whispers

Siren Song


Gilded cage


It was a gilded cage

not of her design.

For years she sang a song


Hoping its beauty would touch his heart, his soul.

That he would find her and see her

and love her as she was.

But over time her voice quieted.

The words, the melody

important only to her.

The days lengthened

and she found herself in the shadow of night.

Reflecting and understanding.

Her soul had its own awakening.

She kept the song to herself

knowing it was precious and beautiful

and worthy to be heard.

Resolving to sing again

when her life was unlocked

and she was free.
