you know how we are often attracted to people who are not right for us...this is a love story between a kite and a bird...if anyone has ever been in an abusive relationship they would relate to this..




Soaring through the air,careless and free 

he was a kite and so was she

her coat was feathered,his coat was paper

he had no beak, while hers was tapered


As different as they were they they flew alike

one was a bird..the other was a kite

She took a fancy to his numerous colours 

she saw his beautiful shades somewhere bright somewhere duller  


Red,green blue yellow so vivid were they

her fascination so wild, she missed the shades of grey

blinded by attraction,she flew by his side

dreaming of love with her eyes open wide


They floated through time, they plummetted through space

they sailed through wind currents,together they raced

they explored new shores as thier fondness grew

but a storm hit so sudden,so fierce,so cruel


Out of control,in his strings, she got tangled

her wings torn to shreds,by the thread she dangled

as she swiveled through the sky ,she screeched from within

she hit the ground so hard, she never flew again....
