When I'M Done I'Ll Let You Go - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I love you.
That's why I've got you locked in a cage.
To set you at dawn as the Sun rises...
Outside to catch the rays.

To then bring you again inside,
Just after the Sunset subsides.
To go over again those lessons to test.
Ensuring your mind will find something to digest.

I love you.
That's why I've got you locked in a cage.
To set you at dawn as the Sun rises...
Outside to catch the rays.

'This is cruel and unsual punishment!
One day I'll run away.
One day you will not have me here.
One day I will escape! '

I know.
And I'm guilty with wanting,
The best of my flowers to bloom...
As I wish them to grow!
You wont have to escape.
When I'm done I'll let you go.

    I think you are far more in love with words and word-play
    than the (fortunate to escape you) person you abuse and harm
    with your misogyny.
