The Solo Flight

The feathers loosen slowly,
In the strong wind they’re flapping,
The wings are taking too much strain
And slowly they are snapping.

The eyes that were once filled with hope
are now seemingly hollow,
The voice that once lit up his world
Now sings a song of sorrow.

The charm is lost, the smile is empty,
The life has left her face.

He can’t tell why, he doesn’t know
His angel is in a dark place.
