Fly Away

a poem by Joy

Your need to break free from me,
Is greater than my need to hold on.
So, go my love, I set you free
No more a prisoner of my heart.
Gently, snap the chains of love
That kept you fettered to my soul
Spread your wings, just fly away.
I ask not why, I ask not where.
Some day you seek captivity again,
Return, for the cell shall remain
unoccupied and unlocked.
Awaiting your return.
