Even when every dream had drowned
and love left me choking on dust
and I felt utterly abandoned by
every aspect of my envisioned life,
something in me set on fire.

Oh, I know heat rises
and I'm lifting off.
God knows where it's taking me,
heaven has yet to shut me out.
Oh, my wings are broken
but at least I'm falling free.
It's the impact,
not my plummeting spirit,
that will throttle the light in me.
Major life changes going on for me. Even as one dream dies, another one springs up. I can't help feeling a terrible sense of loss for the ones I couldn't sustain, though. Maybe it's because I flew too close to the sun, as it were.

I'll win those aspirations back someday.

Ha, I just wrote a poem with an Icarus reference last night so was thrilled to see this.
Anyway, this is lovely, Lizzie. I quite like this line: "Oh, my wings are broken but at least I'm falling free."

Thank you!!! Icarus has to be one of my favorite Greek mythological characters, his story is so tragic. It's a good warning, though.

I have a hard time getting into mythology, I think mostly because I have a hard time keeping all the relationship straight. But this is one of those that has always stuck with me. Maybe because it was such a simple lesson; very tragic, indeed.
