Empty Nest

release the cinderblock sinking my soul. as my hands reach to keep your head above water. return to the nest with comfort and safety guaranteed. i will teach you to soar. even with my exhausted wings pinned firmly to the soil. i can rid every twig in the woods to shelter your heart. and gasp every breath for your lungs to gobble my love. my span will spread once your willingness to fly shines as bright as the tint that remains stained in the sheets. encrusted in my mind. still splitting my ovaries. the night your light dimmed out and the darkness poured.

A silent voice with lots to say. I speak with pens to stay away.
