Yellow Bird

You're illegal, you must be
Because the highs you give me
Feel so wrong and forbidden
Though you fill me with glee

You're bright like lightning
And fast like it, too
So powerful that you're all I notice
When I'm wrapped up in you

Protect me with your armour,
And don't let me fall
If we're careless and lose balance
We'll never again stand tall

But for now let's make them jealous
Let them watch us streak by
Beat your wings of yellow lightning
And let the world see us fly.

The End
