"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Dejected (A Duet Post)

 

dejected
dejected
neglected quantity of the day
passes off surreal
quiet soul
gliding on time’s breeze
she’ll fly away to a shelter
where wounds can heal
she’ll cover her eyes
with broken wings
knowing that she will fly higher
tomorrow.

gliding on time’s breeze
an unheard soul
passes off unseen
to a shelter secluded
where none shall hear
cries of a wounded heart
she’ll cover her eyes
with broken wings
awaiting for the wind
to whisper her
“Beloved, it’s time”

she’ll rise
spread her wings
fly off
higher and higher
on a plane higher
tap the lone cloud with her feet
bounce in the glory of sunshine
flap her wings
squeak and babble in glee…
that’s the core of a bird’s spirit,
what’s yours?

  2. Ela, try to always remember your own words:

    she’ll rise
    spread her wings
    fly off
    higher and higher
    on a plane higher
    tap the lone cloud with her feet
    bounce in the glory of sunshine
    flap her wings
    squeak and babble in glee…

  3. ‘she’ll cover her eyes
    with broken wings
    knowing that she will fly higher
    tomorrow.’
    This line is beautiful, and something that should be read every night before one goes to sleep. The touch of sadness with the touch of optimism is poetic and realistic at the same time.
