1/10/13 Crushing Cages

“I’m still amazed you made it out alive,
After what you did.”
You squeezed through the crawl space
and pushed your heart through the bars.
Exposed yourself to all those people
Left yourself open and vulnerable.
And here’s what you have to show
A catalog of your work for people to steal
Fans who don’t know you
But “know everything about you”
And friends who don’t know who you are anymore.
Now your heart lay beating outside your chest.
It’s there cold, waiting for someone to warm it
Like a bird and her egg
But they’re all worried they’ll crush it.
They liked the shell but are scared for the insides.
