Love in a Cage

Updated on August 14, 2012

My Lovely wrote to me this phrase, to touch my soul and heart to raise.

To write to her, words that explain.... how I feel, without refrain.


"You plant your words on the page,

My soul, you are looking to engage...

My mind continues to be enraged,

At you because you insist on keeping our love,

In a cage!"


I must keep our love..
in a cage ...
for it is so wild...
and full of rage

feelings thrown.....
around in pain
the hurt....hard to remove
like a stain

To free it now .. after so long
would be... to write
a brand new song


With words I planted ...on a page
hoping to reach your soul ...
I fully engaged....


Now.... waiting to see...
the lines.... I'll write
will they be full of love...
or hot with spite...

my Lovely Princess...
I know you not..... I was also hurt
maybe you forgot.


How can I write.....
what you want to hear.

that I wish that i could...
hold you near

and whisper softly .. in your ear
all the words....
that are on this page ....

and they would get rid...of all the rage ..


. open up the lock... on the cage ...
free the soul..
I want to engage

So My Lovely... my write is done
a very long way...
I have come...
into your soul.. I tried to reach
I searched for the ocean ...
but only found the beach.

      I write you words... to lift you up

      the love i send... from my cup

      thoughts of you.. always so fine

      I drink them up...

      juice from the vine.

      sleep well and dream....

      of me tonite...

      holding you close

      nice and tight

      in the morning...when you wake

      my love is there.... for you to partake.

      love you always...

      Nite Nite Michael and sweet dreams to us both,

      To lands that are far away,

      Only with our eyes closed,

      Are we allowed to stay :-)

      Ciao...Princess Prisca

      P.S. I love the sweet lullaby poem that you commented above which I choose to call:

      I think the last two lines sum up the sadness of this poem:

      I searched for the ocean ...

      but only found the beach.

      Beautiful and so sad. Voted up, beautiful and interesting.

      Tilli, thanks for the visit and the lovely comment. Love is beautiful when it happens, but love is also sad in moments, in so many ways
