Set it Free

Set it Free

"If you love something; set it free
If it comes back; it was meant to be."

It soars on wings
That made Icarus weep,.
So strong, powerful, true.
The flight is a marvel to see
But my eyes are blurred
Tears obscure vision
I just feel you move away
And know you will never return.

I want to cross the gulf
To reach out to you, to pull you back
And clip your wings so you can't fly
Hold you a prisoner of my heart.

But you must fly
Spread your wings and seek out
New heights
New lows
And see the world with new eyes
Ones which are blind to me now.

I wish you well on your flight,
And hope this new Icarus succeeds.
Envy stirs in my soul
To be the one who soars with you
But my wings are broken
I cannot fly
Maybe one day you will fly back to me,
Tell me of your journey
Be the man you can't be now.

Our love was Daedalus' flight
Safe, secure, though uplifting and free.
I wanted to fly to the sun
But you didn't want me with you
When you finally stretched your wings.
So you broke mine
And set yourself free.

Here I wait.
Healing slowly
Hoping that one day, I too can fly
Too close to the sun
And feel something again.

I know it's cliche but it wrote itself, I had no control. At least I finished it.
