*Ember Heart*

There was once a bird.
A closed hand was her home.
Time never touched her wings.
She was unknown to clouds
and winds did never meet her.

Frozen, in her little world,
chained within the iron grip,
motionless in the silence,
she yearned warmth.
Locked inside the cage of darkness,
her heart forgot how to beat with joy.

But the dream…

The dream she had,
spoke to her hauntingly in its beauty.
All about an arrival,
all about the shackles,
removed and thrown away.
Her heart became an ember,
and the hand was forced to let go.

My love was a dying bird.
She needed to fly.
