a prayer for wings

you didnt
you didnt
abandon me
not like that

some claim you
threw me away
i say no
you gave me away

so i could fly
you felt like
you clipped my wings
but i clipped them

now i jump
off the highest heights
and open my arms wide
so i can soar to safety

but first
ill risk it all
just for a chance
to fall

in love
with you again
and again
i return every time

someday
we can fly
together
like owls in the snow

but id rather
be a butterfly
if youd promise
to let me live

*In response to Abandoned.
