Heart Wings of Fire

Does it hurt to be lost,

cut away from the love,

you claimed as yours for life

only to see it melt,

vanish into a fog

of empty words?

Heart smolders can be heard

sizzling annoyance

and when time comes

for retribution

wings grow

not made of feathers,

a will of fire

commands spirit.

Heart weaves relentless flight,

its wings of fire will not burn you,

they’re meant to bring down hate,

give place to light,

new memories of love,

after fire has cleaned destruction

leaving you ready

to build a home

from what you still are
