Broken Wings

Does anyone hear me?

When I cry out in despair.

Does anyone see?

My wings are broken and crushed.

I gave you my might, my heart,

on a sparkling, silver platter.

You threw it to the dogs within the hour.

You taught me to love; now you show me how to hate.

There are no more negotiations. No more debate.

My wings were broke, my heart ripped apart.

You, world, taught me how to hate.
