No Need: Invisible Wings

There is no need, no need for him to treat you like that.



Sometimes I wonder why life has decided to shift
When your head spins so fast and then lands on your fist.
When your eyes have not soften from the blare of the sun
And look weathered and tiresome with tears that do run.

Invisible wings
I see though you can’t.
There is no need, no need for him to treat you that.
Like you do not hover with grace from above
And try to tape up this fake type of love.

And sometimes I wonder why you have not taken the fall?
Should you not solider on and refuse to stand tall?
Cannot you not look in the mirror and try to just see
That you should just be, try to just be, just be just be.

I have seen them
Delicate and strong
There is no need, no need for the substandard and wrong
Like you do not hover with grace from above
And try to mend up this fake type of love.

The weight that you carry does not measure in pounds,
No is does not amount, although is dragging you down.
And I see your soul aching for the latch to release,
For you to make the decision where your heart sides with peace.

Silver sparkles adorn,
Soft gemstones alike,
And there is no need, no need for this fictitious plight.
Like you do not hover with grace from above,
And deserve much more than this fake type of love.

Invisible wings
I’ve seen them patched so
And they have melted in more, more towards the bone.
Because your heart is lost and yearns to go home
And there is no need, no need for him to treat you like that.

  1. Wonderful poem. Is it an original by you? It speaks to many of us who have been in relationships that are not good. I hope this isn't you now...
