Hour 22 – Tenderness – Text Prompt

Dove in hand, my songbird
You sing so sweetly to me
Jealous birdy, oh so needy,
You steal my donut freely
With careful tenderness
As your heart pounds
Fearless as you escape
The cage designed for
Your protection
You pluck my garnet heartstrings
And soar beyond the curtain
To a world far crueler
Than you’ve ever grown in.

Dove, starlet, don’t make me go
And find another birdy
Find your way back here safely
So we can work this out
Dear heart of mine
You’ve flown the coop
Too soon to make it on your own
Caught in a bush of night and lies
Sought by wicked claws.
