Bird of Prey

We are strangers now
When once we were friends
You forgot  I gave you shelter
And now my touch offends

 I watch you standing there
Some things are hard to believe
Too weak to encourage your escape
In my arrogance I grieve

Ruffle your dirty feathers
Spread those rusty wings
Stand on a precipice’s edge
Don’t fear what the future brings

Love can be so violent
I’d do anything to make you stay
  It’s hard to accept the revelation
That you are a bird of prey
