the fey [poem]

you can’t keep me here
human
not with your words
those clever little cages of
please don’t leave me
I see your heart
emotions spilled across my path
rusted iron train tracks I have no power to cross
I can’t help but wonder how
you figured me out
found the fey in my veins and discovered
my secret name
you speak it to hold me here
a compulsion
to stay rooted in this clay soil
until I too wither into nothingness and dust
and you still wonder why the fey
don’t trust you?
