Day 93: Fly (3)

I wish I could lock you in my heart,

Protect you within these gilded walls,

So that you feel no pain, no fear, no terror,

All you would be surrounded by is the strength of my love,

Titanium strong and unbreakable.

But gilded walls are still cages,

And one day, I will still have to let you fly

Hoping that your wings have the strength

I see in you.
