Cry Of The Caged Bird - Poem by C.N.Premkumar (love poems, Veda of love, Life and love)

If you love me you wouldn’t have
Locked me up in this cage
If you love me you wouldn’t have
Made me wish for death than a life in this grave

If you love me you would have
Let me spread my wings and fly
You wouldn’t have entrapped me
If I was a bird of no beauty like a crow

Do you know how much I crave for
The songs of the woods than living in this cage
Do you know how much my beak long for
The nectar of fresh flowers

Do you know how much I lament my fate
To watch those birds fly in the air of freedom
If I could speak I could have told you that
The love you shown to me is cruelty in reality
