Broken Wings, Eternally Bound

Updated on November 25, 2011


In the silence of the darkness I found solitude to be the one I seek, yet in that dark moment I knew that embrace would turn my thoughts into a shriek by the end of the day you learn that no one wants to be lonely even those who sever the bonds that connect their hearts to the outer world. And by the end of the night you learn that we were born with our hearts entwined.

Broken and shattered beyond your reach

Where the rays of hope can never breach

The eternal silence that clouds my world

I am bound with the broken wings of a bird

Held and tied by fate’s ropes on the ground

With its will hidden and caged not to be found

If eternal torment on earth recreates eternal hell

Why do you not set me free and break this spell

Am I not worthy of saving?

If so, why is breathing so tormenting?

Was I drafted into this slavery just to be hurt?

Or am I not worth your effort?

Into this world of inhumanity I was bound

As despair eats up my heart inside out

My soul aches to breathe yet never to be found

Yet when I cry no one hears me, even if I shout

I extend my hand reaching out for yours

You retract yours,

I try to grip to the last resonating force

Yet your words of despise are so coarse

My teeth dig deep into my lips, stained in blood

My tears flow worse than any flood

Searching, extending my heart beyond the dark

Yet my desperate cries never ignite a spark

By the Gods that you cherish will you

Paint the world in white and add to some hue

For life has never tasted any bitter

And the light has never seemed any dimmer

That cold heart of yours breaks me

It shatters my hope, shatters me

And you watch from afar saying “let her be”

Unwilling to set me free, you break me

By the end of the day we are born broken and alone

In a world which has cast us with hearts of stone

Silenced, beyond the screeches of fate

I was, I am, will exist in this forsaken state

      so much depth and understanding, to a subject not often written about, and certainly never before have i seen such clarity.

      You are a genius for sure, and i just saw your comment on Cris A's work, and he is still uniting poets...... God Bless.
