As I grew sick and lay down,
you thought I was weak and would perish.

Don't you know it drains strength
to grow wings?

Now I am stronger than ever,
and betraying me is futile,
as I have seen you at your worst.

I could hunt you with predators speed,
and crush you with my teeth,
but there's no need to.

The thundering storm of truth,
evoked by my wings, will do.
~HadrianR just inspired me to write this. No, he's not the "you" of the poem of course.

How to become a griffon?

Actually, it was pretty much one of the best moments to share that with me. Very encouraging if you feel weak and bold at the same time and don't figure out what the hell is wrong with you. Thanks!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment :tighthug:
One should think that wing metaphor is about to get old
But when I am looking at this and your "Fluegel" yes, they do have a lot in common, but I think each of them has something different, too. Something completely their own.

At least, the role of the "you" is completely different. And therefore, also the attitude of the "I" towards the "you".

And I like to think about that thundering storm of truth... so much strength. Now that I think about it, it reminds me of another story of mine. In Wandlung there's this scene:

Er fand den König auf einer Bank sitzend und seine Schwingen wurden rot, glühten und knisterten vor Zorn. „Das da“, verlangte er, „gib es mir.“


Wings seem to be important. :D

Yes, wings seem to be very important. I also like how they can be so different. Something still weak and fragile in <a wytiwyg="1" href"http:="" fav.me="" d6ymt88"="">Fluegel, something that drains strength to grow here, or something very powerful, like in your story and the end of this poem.

They seem to be a symbol of power... never noticed that. Power and self-confidence.

"Don't you know it drains strength / to grow wings?" is particularly gorgeous. :heart:
