A collaboration poem between  Stemmlar Schulze and Allen simpson

there is a songbird
wrapped in its own séance
confused and dreaded
as it left its mark
in soul searching absence

is it caged or free?
it sings a dirge lament
it beckons me to let it in
but my heart knows only
the void awaiting in the end

song of silence
song of free
listening for the crave
feeling the need
to once again be free

shackles of doubt
keeping my heart locked
even this song
cannot cure this disease
