Wings on Fire

They often had wonderedWhat lay beyondThe skin that they despisedThe bones that they longed to crackThe flesh that didn’t need to born They often had wonderedWhat goes on in the cageOf the entrapped soulCrying of sundered longingsSurrounded with heaps of coal They wondered yetWhat harm it isIf the wings could flyAnd to let her breatheAnd […]
