Wings

I have to stay sober

And keep my wits about me

This intoxicating feeling

Is making it rough

Those first flutters of

The butterflies in your heart

Are hard to resist

The wings go crazy

And the rush of feelings

Is often so intense

But I will not close my eyes

And let the emotions

Wash over me

My eyes are wide open

Struggling to see

If there is love in my future

Or is this just wings in the wind
