My crutches

My crutches:
You shared me all my life
But I didn't
I was a bird
My wings shared the love rhyme 
To take a look before the adventure
To have love forever
***
My desire is wider than the open sea and the sky
 Feathers which grew on my two crutches
Drank the wind like a roaring waterfall
I can understand the madness
I can live in a wild flower
Then fly with the pollen
To taste the remote ports
And breathe like sails
***
The story started in a remote forest 
When a strange man was chopping the wood
 Then a crazy magician puffed on them to be crutches
Till that moment, I had no wings
But the feathers grew from my soul in a very cold night
The fire shaped me to be a love bird 
 Singing once and traveling an other
***
" you are mad" said the trees
My face, my neck, were nervous
And afraid of squeeze
The long days became short
And my desire is as wide as the seas
I couldn't escape
But I knew life more and more
***
Inside me
There is a cave of horror echo 
A voice asked me to try
To go out 
To have a moment with the vast sky
Angels and monsters are living together
An angel upstairs
A monster downstairs
None sees the other
But the bird
Can draw his mad city
Despite the long roads
And the dark cave
***
My crutches
I'm the heart of the earth 
And you are my sail
To draw the life taste
***
And you 
Believe me; start now
There are many things to do
For the sake of love and life
***
