Captor (poem)

The tumultuous winds
from my self-storm
are my captor.

Arms unseen keep me
both bound and blind
to the magick
that’s all-around.

Only when I realize
my arms are wings,
will the wind be my liberator,
will my self-made hurricane
spin out of existence.

When the sun peers out,
I won’t get too close,
For my wings are of wax—
I don’t want to be
another Icarus tragedy.

Flying is a curse-blessing.

The biggest curse of them all:
Having wings, but dwelling
each day in a cage;
Being freed from the prison,
Having clipped wings.
