Your Captive Voice

Lusting after a song unsung,

I hunted through your fear

 

And trapped the demon that kept you mute,

blood dripping from my spear

 

Desirous of your captive voice,

I hung its head up high

 

And waited for you to sing at last

—no longer love denied

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2017)
