Few Emotions Reworked
Sometimes the early poetry of a young writer sink into oblivion as she slowly finds herself where she was really supposed to be, writing erotica and short fiction. Few Emotions Reworked is just that, a few old poems edited for the last time.Edited and Selected Poems from the original print book and anthology Emotions: Love Made Courageous & La Boheme: Melody of Poems.
I’ll Set You free
A beautiful sound--I heard
nothing but faint, brief music.
I looked back to see why it faded:
A caged bird.
Once, your feathers were beautiful,
The jewel-tone colors of a rainbow.
You danced so gracefully through the air
to a ballad I will always remember.
Now, you save your breath
to give one profound whistle.
Your wings are weak and cannot rise,
Your colors jaded.
Such a beautiful sound I hear,
nothing more than precious chirping.
I look back and set him free, the bird of my dreams.
Fly away, be free.
That is how I will set you free, my love,
for love itself cannot be held.
To imprison another’s heart is futile.
Caged bird, I beg your leave.
