Bird

You see me smile, chirping cheerfully –

Exotic bird.

You like my colours and wish to caress my feathers.

I laugh and dance away.

If only you knew how much I hate it –

Sugary

Glittery

Flattery

You sing, you flirt, you conjure extraordinary compliments –

All lies.

You want me. You say I’m the best thing that ever happened to you.

I nod and smile politely.

If only you had listened to my tunes

Solo

Free

Independent
