Angel Bound

Angel Bound
Abandoned on the precipice slowly you step to the view
Looking down at sand and stone is this the end your due
Thinning air as the wind grows its persistence against you
Upward you look past the clouds of white and sky of blue
Memories are insistent while within yourself you debate
Can the wind carry me up or is the fall below my true fate
Fear is your companion while defiance solidifies your state
Time is impatient ever watching as you linger making it wait
Stepping back from the abyss dusted earth carries and clings
Gathering your storm focused on what your decision brings
Perpetual silence until within the coil a softened voice sings
Deepened breath and open eyes as you spread your wings
Stretched and free the clouds break as you feel ready to fly
Running fast as you race to the edge never saying goodbye
Illuminating sun inspires and glimmers to a tear in your eye
Leaping over what looms wings out you reach up for the sky
Truth flees as you start to fall could you have been mistaken
The sun dissipates the feathers pull away your hope is shaken
Crashing into sand and stone as from this dream you awaken
Chains rattle you’re still the winged captive forced to be forsaken

    You are truly talented....I was going to leave a lengthy comment on the, "loves lost and found" poem but I had too many words...so I kept it simple. But this one my friend is thought provoking. And what I gather from this after reading it twice is to get your life right so you won't have any doubt that heaven is home. :) you are one of my fav's now...just keep posting...and I'll keep reading. You have became an inspiration to start back writing. Thank you.

    Thank you for the compliment. I started to read through yours as well and was thoroughly impressed and it would be a great thing for you to delve back into writing. Truth be told, in poetry people feel different things and get different things from it. As for this poem, this was actually inspired by a statue I saw of an angel chained to the ground. So for me it was about freedom, hope and dreams. No interpretation is wrong, as it is always personal

    This poem was great. Try checking out some of my stuff? I'm 13 but I've been writing for a while now. Anyway I think you'll like it.
