Blackbirds

image

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to heal
All your life, you’ve been flighty and fighting
Waiting for each moment to arrive
And leave you untouched.

Wound up and wounded
Nursing self-inflicted bruises
Blackbird, stay
Blackbird, wait
You are only needing
A break from weighted days
Blackbird, cry
Into a soundless night of your darker ways
