At the center of all arrogance, especially regarding art, is a naivity beyond words or brushstrokes. -I said it

You say you love me
My goofy, country accent
Charm and wit and yet
You set me free

Like a caged bird
You said I was
You let me go because
These gold wings need to be unfurled

But I would rather stay
Given the chance
Or a warning in advance
I would choose your arms to keep me at bay

You do not realize
That if I am a bird who is free
Than you are my tree
Safe and warm, high above danger, able to sympathize

I need you with me
Like wings need air soaring beneath them
Like trees need life all around them
Like I know you need me

So please, don't let me go
Keep me here
With you and without fear
Because this bird, can afford to keep you in tow

After all, where would I go?
Without my heart, in the dark
Of nature alone, a zone
That will never be my own
But maybe, we can share and together, as a pair, make our own little nest in some tree, forever
