The accurate meaning....
The poet is so lonely and desperate in an absolutely silent evening in a prison , missing his beloved so much.
This loneliness is like a cage or a prison for him, to avoid this restlessness, he want to remember his beloved, the beautiful things about her secrets with him , her Fragrant hair.
He further want to tell her, about his heart break in her absence, about the defeat of his rhythm.
Ultimately, he want to liberate himself like the rays of light coming freely from the prison windows ( to get rid of loneliness ) , so that he can fly high to meet his beloved....
