caged monkey

*

Fed only a few scraps

dead leafs ’n banana peels

Again falling for your traps

I hate how it feels

I hate how it tastes

lava stuck in my throat

tears burning in my eyes

submissive and mute

Bound and chained

those cries of  agony

battered bitter slave,

you’ve witnessed

Keepers heart torn apart

when the cage opens

and the prisoner chooses

to refuse a new start.
