Broken Wings


I sang to you just like a dove
and wrapped you in my wings of love

now i cant lift off and take flight
so without you i must fly solo tonight

please bandage my wounds and heal my heart
pull from it your infectious darts

emptyness fills the nest where i felt safe
you tore down my walls and left only hate

so here i am perched with broken wings
a beautiful bird who no longer sings

only a feather or two still float around
all thats left of the dove who's love you shot down

so dig a hole and dig it deep
make me fit from head to feet
on my grave please carve a dove
to show the world i died for love.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
