I feel so paralyzed
He's ripped off my wings
I'll never get away

Please let me breathe
It's been so long.

You think you love me
I hate you now
Will you ever set me free?

From your butterfly
I finally got away

I opened my cage
and flew off with rage
You'll never forget me

I liked that poem, simple and to the point. I can imagine a butterfly, fragile yet enraged flying off into the world.
Great imagery

Stunning Imagery, Raven. Truly beautiful work, I'm glad to see you post again!
