"You're only human"
Until they step closer
See the scars on my back,
Reckless eyes
Then I am a monster

I never flew with my broken wings
So it doesn't mean a thing to me,
Your touch is without pain

I soared

I cried in pain with a broken heart
gliding through clouds of hurts
fell softly and safely to the ground
on winds of hope under my wings

Broken Wings

I flew and I soared to new heights.
Even when my wings are broken
And battered, I still fly.

Broken wings

Too close to the sun I flew
Recklessness was all I knew
Then along came you
Soothing presence healing my wounds

His savage clip
Left me struggling for lift
I feared
.... Mad spirals towards ground
But caught wind with my great gifts

I lay in this casket
of my broken heart
Sailing an ovary
of stars, their light
purified me
from darkness

Proud

Battered I stand
Defiant to all
Fists clenched,
Head held high
Grateful for the
wisdom and proud
Of my scars

Recalcitrant

Headed for oblivion
was oblivious

So languid
Zero laudable act

Kinetic personality
Was sorry

Broken wings, though it seems, I live for the void it brings. Die from the hope it screams..

Abandoned wings

Lacking air to breathe,
away from failed needs,
feeling beloved
I feed my abandoned wings
and moon is mine again.

I pushed you,
you pushed me,
here we go again
miss. Why do
we always have
to settle on punches?

rough

No communication or understanding,
the roughest of childhoods, so I take it out
on society, is that fair?

memories

Awful front,
tears and
temporary
goodbyes.
Why did we
have to say
adios to
the good times
of smiles/ kisses?
