    A confession of a woman who feels she is not free even or first and foremost at her own home, a "nest" that she hoped it would be. What entraps her is a troubled relationship, a "he" who screams in black and white, not allowing greys in to their world. She wouldn't imagine she could be capable of jelousy which escalates with his words, with his magpie-like attraction to something that's shining with external light, not inner beauty. Confinement, rage (not a lonely, hurt lark but a crying fierce raven) jelousy are the feelings she is left with.
    "find him online"? Is this supposed to mean simply that her time is stolen by him spending more time browsing the Web?
    Who is Starling who is right?
