Saša Milivojev - A BIRD IN A CAGE

Here I fall again
A drop from a roof-gutter
Alone
A message dripping
Sadness springs from the heart
I hear the tambourine in my silence
When friends break your heart
No one around to help
Alone
Like a bird in a cage
Daylight
Awaking delirious
Wine and cigarettes
Colours
Songs and notes
I fall down the scale
Composing tunes
Light specks
Land on ledger lines
I see myself upside down
Laughing and rejoicing
In my own bonds
Alone
Like a bird in a cage
A dream
I am lost in madness
