Stolen Wings

With an open mind, I survey my lot,
With an open heart, I forgive myself.
I am losing, doesn’t mean I am lost,
I am outside, doesn’t mean I’m locked out

With an open heart, I bared my soul,
And with not a qualm you swooped in to take it all.
I am breaking, doesn’t mean I’m a wreck,
The glint in your eye warns me to guard my neck.

With a pair of stolen wings the dead can learn to fly,
And it’s the meltdown of their victim that hurls them into the sky.

You were so beautiful, even lead would bend,
At your wonderful ways, the trees would reach down to greet you,
And the forest parted its leaves,

You were so beautiful, the sun would rise just to greet you,
And the morning air gently rolls you back to sleep
As you lie dreaming peacefully of all the lives that you have tasted.
Half awake, do you lament the lives you have not wasted?
