If only words gave me wings…

If only I was more than a fallen angel

blinded by my own naivety.

Turquoise stone mirrors my heart,

beset with cracks that thread through

its' very core.

Smile faintly, and you move away,

always slipping just out of reach,

laughing at me…

Even the stars snicker at my plight,

dancing in the darkest midnight…

Do you not see me here?

Struggling to live, as tears course down

my pale cheeks…

Tiny droplets fall,

I too am losing my balance.

Though there is no one to catch me,

clipped wings unfolded to no avail.

The search for truth turned up nothing,

and love between us will never be.

I will leave now, for I have failed…
