Wrapped in dark wings she sits perched high on a rooftop, his image burned into her mind. Invisible to most in this world of broken things and shattered dreams she sits consumed by thoughts of him.
She observes unable to intervene, kept from reaching out to touch him though that’s all she dreams. Forbidden, she’s never wanted to be seen yet with him it’s all she ever needed.
She’s been silently screaming behind her veil for some time now and somehow impossibly he sees and hears her. There’s only one choice to make as she feels him reach in her direction.
Wrapped in dark wings she stands high on a rooftop, closing her eyes she falls. Arms outstretched, she smiles as the ground rushes up to meet her. It hurts this falling soul awakening. Overwhelmed, every emotion she’s never felt crashes through her like a tidal wave. She stands broken and bruised, withered wings in her arms before the one for whom she’d given up forever, torn apart and finally whole.
