Caged Pedestal

On a pedestal he lifted her- wanting to keep her safe,
his actions kind-
yet wrung her heart,
a tattered noose hung her in place.
Her lips severed tightly,
bound and clasped to wait;
his dark clouds soon to dissipate,
she hoped- willing not to be late.

Sitting on the precipice,
feet dangling loose;
unsure if she should linger more
or take a leap of faith.
His need to protect her
kept her hidden, caged;
a flightless bird,
with no wings,
her freedom his only place.
