Writing Challenge: June 12, 2017
Prompt: Write about a time you had to let someone or something free. Did they come back?
I never want to keep anything in a cage-
Least of all you.
I never wanted to possess you in any way-
I wanted you to choose to be with me.
I cannot live a life sheltered.
I always need to know that I can leave.
Like a bird,
I wish to fly, but I still return to the nest-
Only spread my wings knowing I can come home.
That is my wish for you:
To be able to fly- but also return at will.
I do not wish you captive-
Fly free but know you can always return to me.
