Paper Wings caught on fire
As she came back down to earth
So she made new wings of wire
To replace those she had on first
But Wire Wings could not fly at all
They would not lift her to the sky
So afraid she was…that she would fall
She lowered herself down to cry
Paper Heart saw her tears
And came to bid her well
But when his eyes did catch her fear
His Paper Heart did swell
A fire grew from there inside
And consumed his Paper Heart fast
Wire Wings put fear aside
To aid him before a second passed
“Oh no!” she cried her fingers sifting through mere ash
“I’m afraid that you cannot linger here and so
I must now take a chance.”
Wire Wings took her heart
And split it into two
And gave him the largest part saying
“Now this part is for you.”
Living Heart took the fraction
And placed it in his chest
Thanking her for her quick action
As she replaced the rest
“Wire Wings, you cannot fly.”
Said Living Heart to thee
“For without you, I would have died…
I’ll give you liberty.”
He took her wings and made them light
Spun of gold, moonbeams, and stars
“Now my dear you’re ready for flight,
These wings will carry you far.”
Heavens Wings smiled wide
Her pleasure..oh so great
With a push she left his side
Living Heart began to blame cold fate
As time passed loneliness grew
Turning his heart into cold steel
He wished that she had never flew
That he was unable to feel
As Iron Heart sat down to weep
For a fair and lost
A lonesome tear did slowly creep
For the price Heavens Wings had cost…
