Black Feather

Winged one
Keeper of chains
Destroyer of dreams
Poison tongued
You've whispered
Sweet promises
In my waxy ears
I've heard
Your stories
Flags of lies
On dead seas
Unabashed unfurled
You've looked
Into my eyes
You've seen the void
Then you smiled
I've tried
To bite through the chains
But they're tighter yet
Around my neck
Now I drag
This weight I drag
That threatens
To pull me back
Into your loving embrace
Of roses and thorns

Read the words Black Feather and that led to this poem.
