NaPoWriMo #7

Without Wings

Angels call my name,


This one was inspired by Kelly Clarkson's "Behind These Hazel Eyes." And re: the angels, they're just fascinating poem subjects. Why not?

(I just realized this took me precisely ten minutes to write. Figures. This is one of my worse NaPo poems.)

I love the images this poem conveys.

"shards of silence" - perfect.

And this has an interesting Gothic feeling.
