I dream

I dream of a heart nestled in its cage, enjoying the protection around it. It’s been hurt and battered. It’s been cornered and neglected.

I dream of a heart resting in its enclosure, singing lullabies to no one. It’s been humming a tune for so long that I hear it in my dreams. Is the song meant for me?

I find the heart in its confinement beating slowly as it stands alone. I walk to the cage, and the song is louder and more beautiful. I’m mesmerized and haunted by the melody. I touch the cage and the heart thumps…and thumps.

                                I hear whispers of pain and hope.
