Fly so fast, cry for wind
Carry me between your wings
Me, me, tiny, olive skinned
Blood of beggars, blood of kings

Lost forever, never found
Roar your cry across the land
Where the road once walked and wound
Stranded in mountains of sand

Clamp your claws around my waist
‘till my harness groans and falls
You will hold my torso raised
You, impenetrable wall

No giant strong enough to win
Or to grab us from the sky
No demon vile, no sinner's skin
No Cyclops to burn us with his eye

Fly my Harpy, take our dreams 
Kill the bad, the hurt, the sad
Cherish fragile shining beams 
Screech seductively and glad

Fly so fast, cry for wind
Carry me, my love, your wings
Me, me, tiny, olive skinned
You and me are blood of kings

Wonderful write, Darren - whimsical and impactful, but such care taken with the words and phrasing ... I so love writing that is crafted with unique phrasing, but done so NOT for the sake of "unique-ness" itself, but for the flow and rhythm and MOOD of the subject matter - exactly as you have done here. Competency states its own voice, and does so to those who are its master. LOVE this, my friend - a fav for sure!

Greg, thank you for such a wonderful compliment. In a way this poem wrote itself, I knew what I wanted it to be, the rhythm and all, that followed naturally.. Again, thank you my friend.

This powerful poem moved me, Darren. I was moved from inertia to action. This thought enchanting poem awakened my muse, and for that I thank you. A riveting, visceral write. As said by the other talented poets/poetesses ... blood of kings is such a magnificent allegory. I love your beautiful mind. A diamond penned poem. Love and more love to you and yours.
