Fall To GroundI asked the sky a question.More Like This
In which it gave me no reply.
It happened when an angel fell,
As I came walking by.
Her neck was collared tight.
her wrists were bound in chains.
Her skin scorched
and body ravaged
I could almost feel her pain.
White wings were burnt and broken,
they flapped useless at her sides.
Her eyes pure yet unfocused,
Pointed toward the sky.
And the part I’ll leave unspoken,
Is the anguish
as she cried.
I know a broken angel,
She’s close yet so astray.
But I’ve seen her hidden smiles,
And the pain she hides away.
I know it’s not my place to ask,
That the answers
have no sound.
And though you may not like it,
My meaning feels profound.
And I look up at the clouded skies,
If heavens such a perfect place…
Why do angels fall
Catharsis of loveSwiftly I sail this ship that is sinking;More Like This
Eyes blacked, blind to the flaws in her design.
Cutting the waves she carries me willing
To the place I go; where ideals reside.
Soon find myself on a distant shore-line,
Crushed down by the weight of my own mistakes.
As my ship is carried off by the tide
Never once did I think about the stakes.
Sorry my Dearest that I did forsake,
Under umbrage of eyes and ears that pry,
Catharsis of love. I hear your heart break
Killing what was once lush, now dull and dry.
I hope you know this is not what I wanted,
That I am trapped by my hubris, and haunted.
