I, Without Wings

I close my eyes,
place my hand upon my heart,
and let go.
I fall
in flight
as my broken wings
flutter to the ground;
my eyes fixated
on the concrete wall
in front of me.
Gathering myself
I plunge head first
through the biting,
cold barrier and
into the abyss.
I gasp for breath
and wake up to reality.
