She's a condor
trying to dive
off of a mountain of quicksand,
trying to soar
on wings of lead,
chained to the ground.

She's a hawk
that I so want to set free,
but can't,
lest I disappoint
and become chained
to this godforsaken desert
myself.

She's an eagle
and her wish to fly free
reverberates through me
and whether I want to or not
I will break those chains.

I will become the air beneath her wings,
the cliff off which she'll leap,
the feathers to lift her leaden arms,
the blade to break her chains.

And with my fall,
she will fly.

Thanks.
I'm getting a lot more inspiration
from not paying attention in class
than if I did...
