Clipped Wings - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

Clipped Wings

To touch an angel,
Eagles soar up on high,
The never mind,
Down we go up a slide
To a future downward hear

The wedding bells
Emanating from a nearby church,
Resonate as heaven sent
Soul mates fly up on high
With a mutual taste in poetry

Not only poetry of the written verse
But when my favorite poems
Are the movies in the world,
Angel dove, to snuggle close
To watch the screen together

Timelessness of every film,
It's a Wonderful Life, here
On earth as we go and go around again,
As we touch base for the first time
Blanket covered lovers hid,

From a world who denies our love merrily
And scrutinize us both as we exchange kisses
Here we go onto our first deep kiss,
Say goodbye to fantasy as I awaken
To my shock and withdrawl like a drug in reverse

Of a day dream reality,
Where all the world know this taboo
When I begrudgingly accept
You early in age to catch up to me
To be my bride, I am so eternally very sorry

But I still love you like a portrait of a painting
As the brush strokes in reverse
Until a barren canvas and back again forward
To the first time I found you up and on the screen
Augmenting the alone of my virgin empathy
