I see this woman as the bird who once lived in the cage. She was confined by her environment, captured and contained. After years and months and weeks and days, she comes to understand that she is only in this position, perched on a metal bar in a metal cage, eating food that is prepared for her and chosen by her master because she chose to be captured. There was no fight, no resistance, no rebuttal because she willingly went. She felt (quite foolishly) that perhaps living in the wild wasn't as fulfilling as becoming a domestic and submissive creature. Over time she missed the open air. She missed soaring and fending for herself, she missed everything she had ever known about herself. She wanted desperately to belong somewhere and to some one, however doing what she wanted when she pleased was a luxury that satisfied her..... Magically and all at once she understood very clearly that it was over when she wished it to be. Although she knew he would miss her as she had gravely missed a part of herself, she carefully and strategically unhinged the latch to the cage and let herself free.... the E N D
