whom were they smiling at?
Whom were they talking to?
Was it me? Or this bundle of flesh n bones?
I know not..
Those smiles and words I have adored
I realise- were never really mine.
I sank at the thought of it..
On their cages, I knocked- behold
Yet none of them budged.
I could see nothing but misty eyes,
For that fine cage- young but still.
I waited, for nothing in return..
Months and years passed by,
They, whom I constantly trailed,
Were trying to get accustomed to my absence!
Blind are they inside their cages!
Here I am- relentlessly calling out to them;
Get out of it, jump out of it!
Deaf are they inside their cages!
Alas! I am done. I am done.
And here I go, in search of a cage which could fetch me
their love- A caged love!
