My Wings , they are me

My Wings , they are me.

My Wings , they are me.

Release me , release me , as though there were nothing left in my heart or my home, release my heart from this torture of Punishment , release me ,

do you  not have a heart, release me , release me from this prison of torment, give me my life back , help me find the prison of love , and  help me find the prison of time, help me find my home within the shadows of love and help me have my home back, help me love to the highest form, release me .

and in the shadows of the night when the heart feels as though demons crawl beneath the skin upon the chest walls of my soul for be it lord unto my own abyss of my own torment how can I give my own self breath, forgive me lord for I am weak, I am a shadow only the unknown follows me , I am weak , I am weak . I am me for all that knows me , I am me , I wish to breathe as the birds fall in the air I am me ,  I wish to live as the dragons fell from heaven , I am me .. I wish to be all that I can be as though the loneliness will drown out my soul, I am me , and nothing in the night will harm me anymore I am me, and nothing will punish  me anymore ,I am me .

I will live as though the dove has a choice, I will live as though my heart soars upon its own wings, and I feel the wings change in the wind upon my back , when I walk alone sometimes I feel the wings in my skin form as blades come across the shoulders and then they form into a light of the abyss of the lights and shadows they are wings that form across my back,  they sing a song that only I can hear they are the wings of the storms, they are without their own seasons they are shadows for my protection when the storms come to take my breath, and although I fight to take them back , they allow me to soar in the fight that no one can see, and though I walk and take them down they still form upon the back, the wings of my shadows, the wings of my blades, the wings of my shadows,

they are my walks, they are my prisons , they are my freedom to the unknown they take their own flights, they climb the battle grounds for me , they give me strength for my knees when they give out , they give me a home when I am within the storms , they are my eyes when I am blind, they are my mind when I am free, they are my tears when I have none, they are me, they can fly , they can be , they come when I least expect it , I can see them in my Mind, they fly , they give way to my own fears and then they can be the wings that take me to the next place in my world, they are me.

They are the Wings of the Shadow grounds, they are me , they are blades that cut through others that see the truth and lies that wait for me in the dark, they wait to steal my life, take my breath and steal my hope they are me , she had a song , and the song played for her soul only , the song that gave her hope had eyes, they where within her home, how can one be other than the life it has had , the life that gave her hope ,

My Wings, they are me.

Dave Allen: Well-rounded. well-detailed story. Bull's done a thorough job developing her characters. An intriguing read!

Faye Paul: Rachel Sikkema engages me as she opens wide a window into the troubled soul of Danny; a young man living on the edge of life with whom I truly connect throughout this story of his journey. I sit on the edge of my seat, willing him in his choices, as he navigates the life and death chessboard of d...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...
