The Wingless Giants

didn´t used to be giant,
They used to have wings.

Beings like us
Who wanted more than they needed,
More than their share of things.

She tried to speak to them
so they forgot how to listen,
their wings were taken away.

They made their own wings
Silver birds that howl,
Screaming scars across her sky.

Stealing blood
from deep under her skin,
to power their Unnatural wings.

They were banished.
They made their own kingdom.
The silver forests,
Hives of mirror,
The wingless giants.
