Wings

A Poem By Madeline // 1/19/2016

What I want is not
immediately imminent
all the time
it very rarely pulls its
best dressed outfit on
to promenade
and
unfurl
cemented
in the world
and
want flitters to and fro
in my head
casing the space
appreciating every
angle
marking down
what's not
in its
place
hand on its
hard-hat
where it will
occasionally be
struck by
a wayward idea
a fluttering thing
and I am
having signals sent to my
taut muscles
that things could possibly
potentially
predominantly
go my way
and now
I have a wind-up
apparatus
sidling from between my
shoulderblades
turned all the way
right
and it is my
it is my version of
wings

for when I
decide
to
let it fly
release my hand
from the handle I
I will
do
everything

Awwwww hahaha Maddi! You are so sweet! I actually was scrolling through comments and clicked it to read yours without realizing it was on my poem! :P I wonder if I'm the only stalker who is guilty of doing that? *ahem* Anyway, thank you much! I think this probably just got lost in the midst of everything else that was posted at the time, so no worries. What a lovely comment to receive! Hope you're well! <3

Umm, I just had to jump in here real quick and say that, no, you're not the only one that stalks like that, Homey. :P
