Waxen Wings

Pride and ecstasy
And Excitability

Waxen Wings

Something in the steady beat of love
Lifts me differently

Response to this weeks OSI prompt Icarus

That's quite a list of descriptors there. I think you captured the full gamet. Though the thought of love being something totally different is powerful. Nicely done.
