Different Book—Same Obsession

With Tehtena's permission, here are a few lines from another novel I am working on, a much shorter one, entitled 'THE RESPONSE'. It's a little poem, written by an old man for a very young woman with whom he is madly and hopelessly in love:

My heart: a bird
—its song unheard.

My cursed old age:
its cruel cage.

And you: the sky,
where it can't fly.
