Cage

It was a
Beautiful cage
Of silver and
Ornate designs,
Garnished with false comfort and
Strewn with
Lies.
It had all you needed
To live contentedly
But not fully.
You were never truly free,
Yet you always
Remained.
Did you stay because
You were frightened to leave
The security of
The gilded walls
I provided?
Or
Did you stay
Simply
To save
Me?
