Caged Freedom - Poem by Lexy Sogl

He alleged
To be awestruck
with the colors of sand
that flowed through my hair
like the water of the nile
Vivid eyes
He named them
Plant Green
Full of life

In the least,
They were
Not supposed
To bluster my composure
what to do, but gulp down
My exhaustion
In anticipation
of that day

When it came
Furious
I saw her
I knew it would happen
The element of surprise
Now a mere joke
Before you had the opening
I left you
Befuddled

Looked over my shoulder
Once or twice
Simply observing
You told her
Who to be
I chuckled giddily
Mostly to myself
I knew
I simply knew
Life couldn’t get better
She was there
And I was here

at no cost
free as smoke
not able
to be caught
to be seen
to felt
even,
to be trapped
