These Fragile Wings

I couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night, the day before leaving Las Vegas.. so what to do other than write? 😉

These Fragile Wings

I sit up high safe in my nest
Wishing that I could fly
Remembering a time, a day, a dream
When I then owned the sky

The sky was once so full of my dreams
My laughter filled the heavens
With angels I soared as we bounced and frolicked,
delight rising up like leaven

When did I notice the ground down below?
The world coloured all in gray?
What set that heaviness so hard in my heart?
Calling me down to taste it and stay

Like the spider’s web entwining its pray,
My wings quickly bound to my side
I first didn’t notice this albatross
Yet all hope inside me had died

The blue sky didn’t exist anymore
My world now coloured in shades of gray
Glimmers of sunshine would peek through here and there
Just as quickly fading away

Passerbys visited, they stared and told me
I captivated their eyes
They then set me down to go on with their way
Their hearts never seeing this beaty’s disguise

What if I were to try to soar once again?
What if I dared to hope and then to fly?
Would there be angels waiting to frolic?
Or would my lonely hope lead me to die?

Would I see rainbows painting my wings?
Would I weave through the colours like before?
Would the heavens light upon the span of my wing?
Could it be mine once again to explore?

Oh but to soar in the twinkling night sky
Each star placed so as to light up my way
Shimmering, shining, bright on my coat
The moon smiling at my sassy, sweet play

Yet here I sit, the memories hurt
I dare not leet hope in today
I dare not spread these fragile wings
I am safer alone in my gray

Say hello if you see my angel friends…

I love and appreciate feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think. Bless you lots, Easter Ellen
