Wings to Fly

Wings to Fly

How foolish was I

To plummet so easily

When I owned the sky

And had wings to fly

Blinded by the sun

I shrouded my sightless eyes

Becoming undone

The further I spun

And I hurtled down

At an incredible pace

Then I hit the ground

With scarcely a sound

Inside of my head

Resounded a piercing scream

Of pain and of dread

As my body bled

The darkness laid claim

As I drifted off to Nod

Inside a soft flame

Had whispered your name

So thwarted was I

Even beyond the dark veil

For I saw your eyes

In my Paradise
