Heels & Caged Minds by Pasithea Chan

You don’t have to wear my heels to know how it feels-
to walk in my shoes and be unable to choose.
Yet you choose to keep your distance and use-
all that I see to maroon me in your desolate sea.
I look into your eyes and feel them slice
through my heart as you take me apart.
I give you my back, but you keep track
of all that I despise spicing them with lies.
You wear your ambitions like a hat
cutting through clouds as you tread my grounds.
I collide into you trying to get to you
only to realize I’ve lost you not to you.
You’ve lost all expression as I have no intention-
to change your opinion or seek your affirmation.
I’ve made my decision; you are not my redemption.
Thank you for your manipulation and oppression.
I now follow my passion not your obsession.
In your eyes, my kind wear heels to experience
your passion as a privilege of being conquered.
Today, I wear heels to remind myself how it feels
to be happy tipping over your entitled kind.
It is my right to live a free life with a free mind 
free of caged mentalities and cagey personalities.

Clouded Vision by Lynn White

I knew you were there,
out here
I tried to find you
but my vision clouded.
With my head in the clouds
I could only dream.

Now I know
I must let you go
Free with the birds.
