Torn Wing

You ever start to fall asleep and then start to hear lines of your story, or some lines of poetry. That is what happened with this poem. The first two lines appeared to me just as I fell asleep and everything else came from this inspiration.

She was numb to the sunshine,

But cold to the rain.

Darkened eyes were hollow.

Her heart wore the pain.

Breathing felt like a single thread.

Delicate, not strong.

Limbs were heavy.

Soul felt wrong.

Butterflies mocked her.

Flying so freely.

Jealous of their wings.

Almost meanly.

Sunsets were paintings.

Ones she could only dream.

Sunrises were nightmares.

An evil devilish scheme.

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.33.38 AM.png

Constrained to her thoughts.

Broken and scattered

She felt chained to the ground.

Like she didn’t even matter.

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.34.34 AM.png

Whispers echo around her.

Yet, she remained still.

Inside her mind, she wondered

“Do I even have free will?”

She pondered the pain

And life’s agony.

Believing its darkness

And trusting its destiny.

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.36.24 AM.png

Yet, a small voice

One she knew once ago

Whispered against the whispers

“I AM the one you know.”

“You hate butterflies

Jealous of their wings

Because you can’t be lifted

Beyond this world’s sting.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.38.28 AM.png

“You dread the sunrise.

It’s a reminder of new

Because fear and worry appear

And you don’t know what to do.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.40.19 AM.png

“Because it is limited

Power needs no originality.  

It’s true you’re not strong.

But, your weakness is My specialty.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.41.21 AM.png

 “So many struggle fighting

Proving themselves to have strength.

Failing as soon as they fall.

Defeated at their measured length.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.43.02 AM.png

“You push yourself too hard.

I never ask what you can’t achieve.

But I ask that you work with Me

Or you will only misconceive.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.45.13 AM.png

“Your broken soul will become wings.

Your blind eyes will see again.

I’ll break these chains which bound you.

The ones that taunt you won’t win.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.46.12 AM.png

“The sunset will be your reality.

The sunrise bringing opportunity.

Fear will no longer grip you.

You will feel the promise of unity.”

Screen Shot 2018-08-22 at 1.47.34 AM.png

His words cradled her.

As the chains broke away.

She fell into peaceful sleep.

Embracing the morning’s ray.

  1. You had me with the first two lines “numb to the sunshine and cold to the rain.” – I may have to quote you one day (with your permission and credited to you, of course). The beauty of creativity is it comes at anytime whether it is just before you sleep or waking up at dawn and the best works usually come from there. Keep on writing. This is really amazing poetry.

    1. ❤ ❤ you are far too kind, Lynn!!! I should have a notepad nearby too because I had come up with more lines originally, but those were the only two I could think of. But God helped me form the rest, and I know He can guide you and your beautiful mind too!
