Oh Icarus!

A poem special to me for reasons I don’t understand myself, it’s seems fitting that it’s my 100th post. =)

Oh Icarus!

Let me burn

let me burst the sky

Touching that valiant Sun

Floundering, i drown upon these wetly wings

i dream of scarring wax

while you disappear into light

the sun ignites your soul

while the Moon embitters me with her dance of waves

Destiny lifted you higher

Cowardice tempted me low

you are nothing more

i am with too much

let us cross

so that i may sink in sun

while you swim

The Winged

 

My shoulders carry a gentle-downy burden

enclosed and curled up i seem to nest

spread out and straight I seem to float

the light above I cannot shut out

warmth encloses me all around

yet no body holds me

as I sigh and stand to glide

I realize sleep is not for the winged…
