Bird Heart

from by Skye Zentz



I am wide winged and
Covered in snow
I am broad visioned and
flying back home
and at times I am numb to the weight of
all the dreams that I hold on my back
but I carry them there
where I know they’ll be kept intact

and im steered
by the whistling wind
by the howl of night
yes, im free
in the open air
in the promise of flight
and I’m lulled by the moon
and her tidings
my companion in the dark times I’ve known
she inspires and reminds me
the solace in being alone

and my bird heart it hurts when its lonely
but I sing to the dark when im sad
and I bite through the cold of my sorrow
with the joy I’ve been lucky to have
and I’m wise and I’m stupid and willful
and I’m brave with the moon on my side
and I forget what the point of my point was
Other than to say I have nothing to hide
