"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

Wings Chained


My wings chained,
I can only stare
at the moon.

I am locked
in my cell
of insecurity.

Trust an issue,
my heart will not
survive another tear.

I once flew
with wings of joy,
now its a memory.

I gave all of me
to only receive
a fraction of another.

My heart locked in
solitary confinement,
fear my warden.

I sit wrapped
in links of vulnerability
talking to the moon.
