don’t sing to me

don’t sing to me of forever
when your voice cracks
at the thought
of one day

you were never
a songbird
just a mockingbird
feigning the words

i was never
a captive audience
just a captive
trapped in your cage

turn the television off
i have a long day ahead
and you need
to plan your escape
