Out of love*
I caged a dove

The dove is my own
My flesh and my bone
Not seen but known
Through only word alone
She sits on a throne
While he misses his home
Collecting wood and stone
To build her their own.*

Dare me to dream,
And I'll tell you what I've seen.
Beg me to me to swim,
And I'll tell you my sins.
Ask me to fall,
And I'll learn to crawl.
Tell me to drown,
And I'll hand you my crown.
I miss you...
But I'll never say a word
And I'll always be unheard
