A journey to nowhere

I returned from the woods
My flying adventure had gone astray
In the mean time my master has gone
Perhaps puzzled and hurt by the absence
Taking it as a betrayal

It was the joy and pride of being his consort
That had pumped me to fly alongside him.
As he flew higher and higher, I watched dazzled
But didn’t notice that unable to keep up
Lower and lower I fell

In the foreign woods I nursed my broken body and spirit
Unhindered by the travails, I regrouped
Thoughts of re-union spurred me on
All my efforts were in vain and my nest is empty.
Why do the rancour I feel, feels unnatural?
