she flies through the night like a comet
her children watch with wandering eyes
and silver tears
alas, they have no wings.
their dreams have become longings
and wishes of a sacred gift
feelings of freedom, of love
soft against forgotten faces.
for a moment she falters
the weight of regret like lead
plucks her from the sky,
her light fades on the ground.
three sets of eyes wide
one child smiles and stares
a feeling of joy in his tummy
sick like envy.
he lifts from the ground
energy, spite, revenge all his
a set of coal black wings
given to him, him alone.
the children watch with hollow eyes
glad they do not fly
on tainted wings
wishing they never do.
with hope they walk on
four hoof beats for each one
a rythemic sound
soothing to their souls.

This is a very interesting piece. I read it twice and found some enticing lines in here. Care to give a little background or insight into it's meaning? I'd be very interested. Thanks for the read.

Wow! that is very powerful. the meaning I'm getting from it is that it's about a drug addicted mother, her children forced to see her throw her life away, and in the end, one of them follows in her path.
