Broken Wings

Broken Wings

A Poem by Douglas Levi Gribbins
"

Like my past writings, its dark with a twist, emotional, dark, and educational.

"
Have you ever
Loaded a gun that said "Goodbye"?
Have you ever.
Fell victim to the devil's lullaby?
It's trying to lure me to sleep
When i haven't even awakened.
He says he will fix my broken wings.
I wonder if i should take it?
It's just a bullet to the brain
Maybe a bit of poison past your lips
You could lay in pain, you go insane as
Listen to noises of your blood as it drips
You're getting lightheaded, The stress stays heavy
You're on the bed, You're sweating, You're voice is edgy
There's no noise, it's silent, You feel it, a red bed-sheet.
You feel it down your spine, you're Parylized 
You're burning, you can't even cry,  
You're eyes, Look at the devils paper that you must sign.
It's a sign of weakness, You have fear that you cannot hide.
You have your past, behind a mask, that will come at you fast
You can't run, you can't hide from it, Get a vibe from it.
Use it to stand up, Decide to get- Stronger, Don't take it longer.
You wake up, you're arms are fine, bed-sheet is white, Not a red line.
In sight, I insight that You will remember this night, Right?
The night that you fixed your own wings, and took flight.

In a wild wife. We will do most of the acts in the poem. I believe some of us cannot regain angels wings even if we desired. I like the complete poem. Questions give the reader something to ponder. You poetry did. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

That was...so very powerful and extremely well written. I really feel you. I'm also 16 and I have trouble with people. This poem shows so much heart and soul and you should really be proud of it. Please continue to write. You honestly have such a special talent. Stupendous metaphors and the symbolism was marvelous.

Use it to stand up, Decide to get- Stronger,
Don't take it longer.
You wake up, you're arms are fine, bed-sheet is
white, Not a red line.

Very well written and crafted one. Love to read it.
