Flying Without Wings – 06/2006

Title: Flying Without Wings
Date: June 2005
Genre: Angst

Explanation: During my younger years, I concentrated mostly on rhyming or free-verse poetry. Most of the poems from 2005-2008 are dark and depressing. This particular piece speaks of the freedom that people try to find through suicide.

Flying Without Wings

Tonight I take my life,
This will be my final flight.
When I fly without wings.

I’m over you,
through with your hate.
But the scars you have given me,
I can never escape.
So tonight is my final night,
Darkness, I pray.
Take me— help me fly away.

Welcome death,
It’s all your fault.
I will take the coward’s way out.
My blood will be your guilt.
So tonight is my final night,
Darkness, I pray.
Take me— help me fly away.

Tonight I take my life,
This will be my final flight.
When I fly without wings.

Bloody now,
All life fading.
Blood on my wrists, tears at my eyes,
I’m dying to be free.
So tonight is my final night,
Darkness, I pray.
Take me— help me fly away.

It’s too late,
The blood won’t stop.
In this horrible, painful world,
Another soul has fled.
So tonight was my final night,
Darkness, I pray.
Beautiful death— I flew away.

Tonight I take my life,
This will be my final flight.
When I fly without wings.

Tonight I take my life,
This will be my final flight.
When I fly without wings.
