Wings and Locks

Flying

Written By: Maham Shahbaz

...And so in between trying to protect herself from all the heart breaking things and putting on locks and more locks on those locks, she scarred herself deeply and she couldn't possibly carry all the weight that she, herself had created for her shoulders to carry out of her awful habit...

....And he, who tried to appear all optimistic was very negative at times but never did he utter a word of negativity for anyone else. He who was all that happy and sunshine on the outside was sometimes night on the inside. He carried a weight that someone put on him, a weight he never asked for, that weight was too heavy for his wings and he absolutely loved to fly...

...So as he was forced to walk he saw her almost falling down, carrying more than she could actually hold. So he with his unwanted weight walked slowly towards her but couldn’t get to her because of all the locks that she made. In that moment he got more weight and his wings were growing shorter but still he was there finding keys and unlocking, many still remained but he saw her face and she for the first time saw someone with an almost clear vision. He helped her up and she hid some of the keys because her scars were only for her to bear and it scared her. He still carried her locks along with his own weight and his legs were tired but they walked and they walked in search of a key and a pair of wings. She could see him growing weak but she never told him how much she appreciated this act of his in her heart. So she tried to find her keys to give to him but she found a few and the rest were just lost somewhere. Her hands could now feel the air and his wings grew weary. A day came and he tried to fly, he did so, and she stood there happy and sad...

...he wanted to fly and that he did but not because he wanted to but because he had to.... ....and so she walked alone and he flew alone, knowing that they weren't actually far apart... ...during that flight he got more weight on his shoulders and he almost fell but he still flew because he was forced to...
...she took the locks and locked her hands again but she couldn't find enough locks to lock his memories away and so she replayed them again and again and again and cried because it broke her heart but she was happy that he was flying...

...he crashed down somewhere and he wasn't well but he still never threw her keys away. He knew that she would need them and so he added to his load on his own...

...they met somewhere near a desert and they both cried with joy or depression? Because now he had no wings and only the load on his back and she had so many locks...

...something about those wings though, she believed he would fly again and so she decided to appreciate him more now, but these locks were more old and filled with rust, she tried and failed and tried and failed...


...so they stood on a really high cliff and decided to jump so that they could fly, and they fell and fell and that was probably the best thing she ever felt and she was happy and sometimes didn’t even feel her locks but now and again she remembers that she will hit the ground once more, worse than before and it scares her a lot....but they continue to fall anyway... ...he would someday get sick of this constant pointless sound of her rust and carrying around keys and fly again but he stays down just now..
