Broken Wings

Image inspired..  this is simply poetic expression. 
 
 
 
Close the windows and lock the door,
I cannot take this anymore.
Throwing down the cards, fold my hand.
This is not what I had planned
 
I have not been myself lately,
skilled knives have mended so greatly-
the bones, but lost my will to sing.
Gravity won and broke my wings
 
There’s no more fear in the breakdown,
I have lost the will not to drown.
So easy to ride, down this slide,
can’t you see it in my dark eyes?
  
I’ve been good at wearing the mask,
to hide the tears, so they don’t ask.
Such busy lives, no time to spare,
so let me go, for I’m not scared.
 
I have slipped far, this time dear,
ready to quit the game, no fear.
Into a hole where time has ceased,
longing to claim my soul deceased.
 
No metaphors to shield the weak,
silence is what I crave, don’t speak.
Has nothing to do with you dear,
it’s just as plain and clear…
 
to me…so,
 
Close the windows and lock the door,
I cannot take this anymore.
Throwing down the cards, fold my hand.
This is not what I had planned

A Starry Sonnet

 
A star-filled night can pierce the holy dark:
their brightness splinters light across black sky.
Explosions sprout a star’s enthralling spark-
beyond the fortress deep in space, they fly.
                                           
The bright of city lights hold visions blind-
astounding scene of planets dancing high
embracing darkness, lone stars realigned.
A falling star’s sweet voice will crest then die.
                                            ★
Be quick to dream a wish on shooting stars.
Allow no fear of hope to weed your trust-
at times, life’s rattles can inflict deep scars.
Begin by wishing troubles turn to dust.
                                            ★
Your silver coins in pockets, merely thrown;
     to wish upon a star; a wish to own!
