Angel Bound

Written by: Drakavai the Wordsmith

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
