Unable to Fly

Written by: Kelli Egloff-Metzgar

When I met you
I was like a wounded bird
You healed my wounds 
with tender kisses
You strengthened my heart
by giving it love to nurish it
You fed me promises
eagerly I swallowed them
And just when I was able 
to fly again
You battered my heart
Deepened my wounds
And then
You clipped my wings
