Breaking Heaven… #Poetry

Breaking Heaven

I am hiding under a wing until my mind has grown
Until I know what to do with the life given to me
I am small, curled into a ball
My limbs thin, as yet ungrown
I see myself walking, running, playing in the park.
My mother sits on a bench speaking with another
She cannot see the wings where once I hid
Tears blur my vision the sun smiles as I cry
Dark clouds break heaven
Rain falls, joining my pain
Knowing all the joy I gather
in a lifetime is only borrowed
We wait many lifetimes to return again…
