Eternity Without Wings

The morning of the red sun
An angel held my hand
His slightly rustling wings
Were a string orchestra’s violins
Pure gold in the new born light
And the bitter tears I never shed
Those wings of whispered dreams
Touched my ocean eyes
Suddenly I could clearly see
My reflection in the sky
Was a thousand unseen stars

“You will never have wings”
My angel softly spoke
“But you’ll fly beyond the light”
It must have been the truth
Whether or not it really was
Because he believed it
Hand in hand I walked
Through dreams and fairytales
Hopes and little white lies
I loved for the first time
Because he couldn’t die

“You must never forget”
I knew it was important
Though I would not remember
He was convinced I had to
On unspoken words and wishes
He carried me to yester dreams
Not ever to come true
His colours painted me
With butterflies on white lilies
Swaying in a winter breeze
My unbreakable pain shattered
On the drops of a pearl haze

“Close your eyes to see”
This is my only memory
Even if it never happened
For I trust he still remembers
His wings were of liquid silver
Under the bright blue moon
Of the night I knew would bring
Another red sun in the morning
But I would never see it
Because at the break of dawn
He welcomed me with a kiss
To Eternity Without Wings

Rip You Apart
I will rip you apart I'll pull out all your pain I'll cut out your heart And I'll do it again 'cause I love to watch you Hurt and cry Can I kill you eight times Before you finally die? 'Cause you remind me Of a worm So defenseless While you squirm Not so beautiful Like a butterfly Who when killed once Will fall and die But you stay here Through all the pain You were happy Before I came I will rip you apart from the inside out I will take all of your pride I will lie to you to get your trust And I'll slowly eat you alive I'll drive you past insane I'll make you go mad And I'll cut your weak wrists like you sh

Shut Down
Born of a bitch made of bolts, And a dad who sold microscopes, He slid out one Friday night. His heart jump-started by electrical shock, Thrown into incubation and kept under lock, He spent three months in that cold tank. Suddenly, ethereal hands grasped his tender thighs, Dragging him out from mechanical skies, Lucy took him home and tossed him into bed. As he lay there, with eyes fluorescent blue, He found the environment strikingly new; But did it even matter where he was? When he awoke the next morning, He let out a guttural cry for some milk; A maid gritted her teeth and mixed the formula. Manufactured milk doesn't taste a

one wing
i strapped the wing of the flea-bitten angel across my back and wandered down the street to my dismay there lay the other half...dissected in the middle of the road- only recognizable by the pile of feathers strewn across the pavement like barbie plastic melted in ice frozen in betrayal, were my own perceptions of righteousness tattered by the sight of my flight now fallen..... i knelt down and began to gather the pieces in a last attempt to redeem my SELF. perhaps all sins committed could be reconstructed and justified into good deeds..... and this wing -disassembled- could become something greater than it ever was.

Tis sad yet lovely in its depth. It reminds me of being surrrounded in darkness....without hope, lost in eternity with the sole desire of loving someone but only to have my heart taken with broken dreams and broken promises. Once I wondered where was hope...this poem reminds me that I have hope in my hands...within my reach...as fragile it may seem but it is something to cherish and hold on to even more once its gone and found again. Seeing the young lady with so much depth and emotion in her while holding the precious rose in her hands, I can't help but get the feeling I can spend eternity without wings an eternity loving someone :blushes: Its beautiful in its pain and sadness as well as the beauty that comes with it.

I don't like to give critique but I like to write more than one word on how I am moved by a poem. It is my way of appreciating art and express my love for Aesthetics, what I consider Beautiful. I'm blabbing as usual but I can not help to appreciate words so beautiful and full of artistry as yours. I am moved. I am moved by your eloquence. I am moved by your talent. I am moved by how you can accomplish so much in your poetry at such a young age. That...that you don't see every day. :aww: hence this is going into my favorites.
