Phantom Wings

Phantom wings
Ride through this night
Alone and trapped
In the never-ending lullaby
And the moon
Cannot hide my despair
With its gleaming surface
And life has given me the choice
I do not want to make
Because when the light shines
And pours onto my face
Half is dark
And half is bright
And I cannot pick
One over the other
The wings soar
Searching to rescue me
From my agony
Yet I cannot be found
And the choice remains
Between the two beings
I love most

This is beautiful! I love how you say 'the wings soar/Searching to rescue me', and 'half is dark/and half is bright', you created really strong images and emotions and chose really good words. Would you look at my work? I'd love your opinion!

i'd say it's quite a bit better than decent. i honestly think it's one of the better poems i've read on this site. i think you use very powerful language to portray a strong emotion. if you have any comments for my work, they would be greatly appreciated.

Your poem is decently put together.....you have potential to be great........ I sense from your poetry that your depressed and confused on what you should do.. on that note no matter how bad things get its always darkest before the dawn.... things will get better
