Image for the poem Black Wings

Black Wings

My wings
became black
the white is gone
ruined and disgraced
I lie soulless on the floor

Feather
after feather
someone painted
them with the colour
of death and damnation

My wings
were covered
in dirt and shame
in guilt and remorse
and in tormenting pain

Feather
after feather
I pulled them out
ripping off all my sins
to the floor they swirled

My wings
are now gone
I feel empty and
bare, not able to fly
my destiny is destroyed

Father
I need wings
etch them on me
ink them into my skin
Iím an angel, I need to fly
