The Duet

Tiffany Henderson

I feel the birds in my cage flying home
Maybe there wasn’t any company
In my heart I feel alone
The melancholy symphony is a duet made for two sunken birds.
No one wants to sing my songs
I sing alone
I answer my own calls,
no one rings me anymore
The star of the party,
An empty cage with no freedom
The birds flew away,
but they’re still there
because in my heart I hear them cry
a beautiful sound.
