Release these doves

I know the feeling,
You’re lonely I can tell.

We can scrawl our miseries on these paper boats
But the ocean just brings them back.

So I’ll be the scarlet moon
And you be the night.

And only when this sorrowful darkness seeps beneath our bones do we smile.
Yet the only good thing about misery is that it can’t last forever…
Can it?

Your whole life, you are trapped within a cage.
With no key.
A flightless dove.

But once darkness comes, lovers unite.
Sorrow no longer fills the hearts of Romeo or his Juliet.

Lying in this crypt.
With no sounds but their shallow breaths and uttered words of love.

No longer in life shall Romeo and Juliet be together,
Yet, in another.
Far from the cries of sadness, greed and needing; they both do sit…together at last.

At the door of death, they knock.

And once there, finally in their endless wonderland,
they are free.

The cage is opened.

Release these doves.

Who no longer cry.

But smile.

For they are free.

Fell out of my history book at school! yay!

I always make poems and stories up in my head even when I’m at parties or on a public bus, so when inspiration comes I pull out my notebook and pen that are practically glued to me and begin writing.
