Empty Nest

The cage in my chest
has been full of silence
since you left the door open
and walked out.

Now you're looking in
where did my heart go?

It grew wings
and flew the coop
never to return
or beat again

Freedom is a seven letter word
you never should have taught me
if you wanted to come back

You should've tip-toed out,
checked the latch before you went
instead of blowing through me
like a hurricane.
