Just another depressing poem for the daily prompt. Tried something new with the formatting!

bird in a cage

the bars surround

the bars surround and trap me in

the bars surround and trap me in I want to fly,

the bars surround and trap me in I want to fly, to soar across the

the bars surround and trap me in I want to fly, to soar across the dark cloudy sky

the bars surround and trap me in I want to fly, to soar across the dark cloudy sky that you have painted.

but no, you locked

but no, you locked the bars and shut me

but no, you locked the bars and shut me in tight...

I'm starting to get claustrophobic in this space,

I'm starting to get claustrophobic in this space, this small

I'm starting to get claustrophobic in this space, this small imprisonment.

and every time I

and every time I spread my wings

and every time I spread my wings they hit the bars

and every time I spread my wings they hit the bars so that I can't fly

and every time I spread my wings they hit the bars so that I can't fly out, I wanna fly

and every time I spread my wings they hit the bars so that I can't fly out, I wanna fly!

let me soar

let me soar across the sky?

let me soar across the sky? I've been in here too long

let me soar across the sky? I've been in here too long. I'm starting to forget

let me soar across the sky? I've been in here too long. I'm starting to forget why I'm here?

Please let me out

Please unlock these bars

let me fly

let me fly let me see the stars!

let me fly let me see the stars! don't just sit there.

why am I a bird in a cage?
