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.

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

Theresa Alley: There always needs to be a BEGINNING and this reads like it!! I can see SEQUELS, yes plural, after this one!! Angel can take this character a LONG WAY!! And there R a lot of places to take Her to!! Have fun!!

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

jseversky: Was amazing loved every second of it I really want to read more, and definitely would. Hope the author makes a 2nd book. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, loved it. The author describes everything in in new and innovative ways, and love the 2 separate view points.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Laraine Smith: My only suggestion on the grammar is to use www.grammarcheck.net. I have it bookmarked on Google Chrome. I see myself in the determination in this beautiful story! I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have dreams that I have been working hard for, too! The humor made me laugh!

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...
