Wings – Manic Mondays Prompt

I found a new challenge that intrigued me at Cee’s Writing Challenges list. It’s called Manic Monday’s Prompt. Our host gives us a picture and a song to play with. I thought it would be fun to do a “black out” poem using the words of the song and then paste it on the photo. So here’s my take. Thank you Laura at All the Shoes I Wear for this awesome prompt!

Challenge: Write something in any genre inspired by the picture (you see below) and the song Change by the Deftones. (I’ve posted the blacked out lyrics below).

Wings

i watched you
fly away
on wings
so alive…
then i laughed
now, i had wings…
ahah…
look away
i never had wings
so alive
i have watched you
i never had wings

Change
Deftones

I watched you change
Into a fly
I looked away
You’re on fire
I watched a change in you
It’s like you never had wings
And you feel so alive
I have watched you change

I took you home
Set you on the glass
I pulled off your wings
Then I laughed
I watched a change in you
It’s like you never had wings
Now you feel so alive
I have watched you change
It’s like you never had wings
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah

I look at the cross
And I look away
Give you the gun
Blow me away
I watched a change in you
It’s like you never had wings
Now you feel so alive
I have watched you change
And you feel alive
You feel alive
You feel alive
I have watched you change
It’s like you never had wings

Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
Anh, ahah
You change
You change
You change
