"Underneath Your Skin, I Can See Your Wings"

"Underneath Your Skin, I Can See Your Wings"

A Poem by PoeT4994
"

A metaphor for being close with God.

"
Underneath your skin, I can see your wings. 
See, I used to be held and cradled by the devil,
but I found God.  And upon pulling away from
Satan's clutches my epidermis burned and
sizzled slowly off.  Ripped and torn my flesh
was left.  But through these scars, the
brightest light shines.  See, underneath my
skin, you can slightly see my wings.  And as me
and God become closer, they grow
bigger...and now, you can see
my wings on the outside of my body. 
Spreading from my shoulder blades into
other lives, bringing hope and inspiration
with each flurry, flap, and flutter.  And
the thickness of my wings shows the strength
in them.  See, it's width that matters, and
your hearts, are paper thin.  But allow me
to write upon your loose leaf heart and
create these branches for you to go out on
a limb.  Plant my seeds in your loose leaf heart
and it will grow into a tree. 
My words, my wings, will fill your heart,
creating a blood pumping muscle the size of a Harry
Potter book.  Time in hell has stopped, but I flipped
the hourglass and the ground became the sky
in your world, so now, I watch you walk through
heaven.  I've seen this case
before and I can see right through you.  And
i've done this to many people and seen different
results, so call me insane but the only
rawrshawk blotches I see, are feathered
bones in your body.  So I repeat,
underneath your skin, I can see your wings.

This is a beautiful profound message. I love the line underneath your skin, I can see your wings. This gives me hope. This is one of the most beautiful poems about faith that I have ever read. You use imagery that other poems about this topic haven't. There is no judging for the person has come out of Hell to find their own faith. Motivating. Captivating. Truly spectacular. I pick this poem randomly and I an sure there is a reason why. Great job.
