Broken Wings

Broken Wings

These broken wings are wounded so deep

they no longer can lift myself to my feet.

Infected with rage, bitterness and grief.

Alone I've worn the soles from my feet.

My shattered heart is trodden to dust.

No trivial pieces leave the hope

it'll ever be mended back to its whole.

This deep black void is consuming my soul.

My face and pillow are drenched in tears.

Raging sobs that nobody hears.

With just another hopeless sigh

I'll blow away what once was my

Beating heart, strong, unsinned.

But now it's no more than dust in the wind.

I wish a wish could heal my heart.

Repair this life that's fallen apart.

A wish to end the constant hurt

or perhaps a wish for wings that work.

LOL!  I'm a ditz! Just over look the "birthday" thingy....Guess I had my head up in those clouds, eh?

Toss me a rope and haul my dumb arse down....or consider it a VERY early wish or an extremely LATE one....LOL

Amy I love the song "Broken Wings," and that is what drew me to this write...but the story inside kept me reading. The experiences of life that cause us to have to deal with these broken wings build us up and make us stronger.  We grow to depend more on our feet which remain firmly on the ground than the wings which tend to  make us keep our heads in the clouds. LOL My wings were broken so many times I just finally got rid of them and bought a new pair of Sketchers...I've been happier ever since!

Hugs and hope that you can find that place of inner peace that will help you to mend all the breaks that have come along in your life.

By the way, Happy Birthday!
