The Winged Man and His Wife

Once in a land full of life At least that's what I was told so There lived a happy man and his wife Who smiled and watched the birds go One day as they were watching the birds The old man had flipped his hat For he had said only a few words And it was that he could fly like that The wife then began to frown For the man had simply gone mad So she got ready to leave the town Which made the cheery guy sad He swore to her that he would fly So the wife had grabbed her things She opened the door and said bye And when she left, the man sprouted wings A few years had come and gone The wife grew old and watched time pass One day when sitting, she heard a song That sounded from her fifth floor window glass 'my love,' it said, 'I now have wings. my love,' it went on, 'I wish you would see me fly. my dear, come look at me, drop your things. I wait by your window, perched in the sky.' The wife got up and looked out the pane She froze at the sight she had saw Her husband flying, or was she insane? He smiled at her dropped jaw. 'My love, come with me. Fly in the sky.' 'I can't,' she shook her head 'oh come on. climb out. I promise you won't die.' So she climbed out, and was never seen again. (this is fictional)

Not on this side of life, but maybe somewhere else...? Lovely one.

Sounds like she was on an acid trip. Good descriptiveness and rhyming in this piece.
