another desperately plaintive scream into the void

how can i fault
the canary
seeking to escape
the cage inside
my heaving chest
it yearns for
the freedom of
the cerulean forever
it has seen only
in dreamshattered
fragments filtered
through the same
chemical delusions
in a soulblistered
orgy of my own
sinfully simmering
ocean of discontent.

i turn up the music
to drown out the
strains of furtive
birdsong echoing in
my hollow cathedral
to the lips i long
to trace with my
shaking fingertips.

i would tear open
my chest to let the
damnedable thing
finally flutter off
into the sky if i
thought the misguided
avian disaster could
find its way to you.
