The creature inside her cage

The creature inside her cage
So small
Suspended in the deep end
She flutters
Cage half glass half metal
Frozen
Her limbs are frozen
Sunlight
Cold sunlight

Second by second
She starts to move
Her wings outstretched
Then Once again
She flutters

It's too vast
Insurmountable
The winds are strong
It's too cold
The creature inside her cage
Trembles

She stares into a hazy sky
She swims in the abyss of waters
She breathes Ragged breaths
Harder and harder
Again
She flutters

The creature inside her cage
Chirps
Kinda subtle
She'll drown

One last breath
In and out
Complacency will kill
the creature inside her cage

she leaps
