Caged

I’ve been locked in a cage
That has no bars of steel
But instead was a fantasy
Never something real
I was caged all the same
Boxed and confined within
An imaginary cell
But what kept me therein?
Then something flicked the switch
Someone brought along the key
That erased the imagination
And finally set me free
I don’t know how I got there
How did it all start?
Why did I cage myself
And devastate my heart?
I may never know the reasons why
Or how the cage came to be
But I certainly know now
What it feels to be free
So I’m never going back
To that imaginary box
And now I’d like to hasten
The slowing of the clock
