for t.v.

i gave her to you for safekeeping, but then she kept you for herself

i was needed

across the sea

the other half of my heart

was calling

broken and battered in the fight of her life

it was the end

of an age

what was gilded became tarnished

cracks in the facade

of our perfect lives

i didn’t want

to be trapped

beautiful trappings of a gilded cage

i loved you for your rebellion

but you used it for her

i like

to think

maybe i opened the cage door

just enough for you to push

and fly away where you could breathe
