Wing And A Prayer - Poem by Michelle Tiddy

I think my heart is bleeding
You tore it out you see
Leaving my body unanchored
Drifting, without a dream

I can't even write anymore
The words have shrivelled and died
It's truly like a curse
You made me swallow my pride

And pour out hopes like a melody
Catching wishes in my fishing net
Reaching for those timeless stars
From the moment that we first met

And I feel hollow and shallow
Undriven, unloved, un-me
Climbing the stairs to heaven
On a wing and a prayer you'll find me
