Return My Stolen Wings!


I was seduced by an angel;
a guardian of the night.
He was master of desire
and bathed in moonlight.

Lost in paradise wild,
adrift in savage dreams,
there was no place to run
and no one to hear my screams.

Just one night with you
was magically unchained.
A song of soul was sung
with feelings, unrestrained.

When night was at its darkest
and shrouded in dense fog,
I was led towards my destiny
and sucked down into the bog.

Wake me, earthly lover!
Or am I forever in a dream?
Pluck me from these murky depths.
Pray hear my smothered scream!

Release me from this cage
Of darkness, not of light.
Return my stolen wings
or for my freedom, must I fight?

The battle between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ rages on. Sometimes, you cannot always tell the ‘good’ ones from the ‘evil’ ones, in dreams and in reality for it pays to look beyond a mere façade because that pretty package could be gift wrapped, death.
