A Bird Once Free

"hope is a distance unreached

ink on her skin, incomplete

and the faint sound of friends

as she neared to the end, she had peace

 

nobody’s watching

drowning in words so sweet

mild is the water

caught as a bird once free ..."

I've been listening to this song a lot in these last days. Billie Marten has said that it's about "how words can really affect people, and not for the right reasons; how you can feel caught in your own space all the time even when no one is actually with you." It was a really compelling thought to me, after what I'd written about feeling lost without loss, loneliness without being alone. Whether you're trapped in a metaphorical cage, or adrift and free falling, either one can make you feel like hope is just out of reach. All we can do is try to keep going ...

 

Thank you all so much for your generous and uplifting words. You're truly wonderful. ♥
