Of a Bird-less Sky

Of a Bird-less Sky

A Poem by Fadedspeak

Of creativity and the imagination
are ever-fluttering wings of life,
pure and innocent,
a surefire distortion
in a conformist sky
full of clouds too jaded to change,
shackled to shades of sullen gray;
running showers of heavy rain;
drowning out the precious seeds of youth
in elderly dreams.

Birds too fearful to fly,
trapped in arms of the mind
of the conscious in control upstream,
forcing feathers to submit
to an endless winter night
till they're all desensitized
of any impulse, 
of every feeling,
fodder for a bird-less sky -
the busted lips of pessimism bleed
over the beaten corpse of creativity.
