Wings Lost

……………………………
……………..

Crack and split,
they break away
to unveil mortality.

Softness gone, it
disappeared with
wings of allegory.

Dilute my skin,
and weaken me.
I am human to
the core.

Pin feathers in
your shadow box.
What else are
these wings for?

Crack and split,
they break away
to display my
human side.

It is the jettison
of plumage now,
behind these wings
I can not hide.
