    when love isnt enough and promise holds no truth
    when the past already made its history and the present is put to use
    when common sense and signs of fate dont seem to manage
    when words lose their purpose and time is taken for granted
    thats when its time to let the caged bird fly...

    i provided the love
    to this misguided dove
    but i cant hide it from above
    cuz even god knows its time to discuss
    what we see in line for us

    we know what u did and how i reacted
    no beef, no tears, this is whats crafted
    cuz mad or not, the sh*t happened
    its not the incident thats important, its the reaction

    youve been running and ive been chasing
    ive been dwelling and you found a replacement
    its obvious, im the rhythm to ur heartbeat
    and every minute that im not there, its hard for u to breathe

    but unfortunetly, with the cards given we're forced to deal
    whether we like it ot not, we cant help how we feel
    i love u, u love me and thats just being real
    but time and change have had a chance to heal

    i no longer cry
    cuz the harder i try
    the farther you climb
    so i've armored these eyes
    cuz the stronger survive

    but its good to hear ur voice
    i see you havent lost ur poise
    but dont worry, im not here to toss some noise
    cuz even though it DID hurt, i respect ur choice

    But I still wanna be friends, I wanna keep the relation
    Cuz we need eachother, I give u the patience
    and you give me the assurance that Ive always been safe with

    But love isnt enough and promise holds no truth
    the past has made its history and the present is being put to use
    common sense and signs of fate just dont seem to manage
    our words hold no purpose and time was taken for granted
    im letting YOU, my caged bird, fly away...

    So fly south and if you honestly do not like it...
    You know where ur nest is.

    this is one of the "Best" pieces I've read of you... by far

    "Bravo"....so much emotion, sculpted into a pensive
    floetic piece of selfless love...

    Encore Poetic...Encore...
