Ꮂ •Ꮗ• Ꮂ fallen angel {élargi}

•Ꮗ•

• Ꮗ •

i  recognized him as a fallen angel
from the singed tips
of  his still smoking wings,
a broken halo
lying on the ground

• Ꮗ •

the angel turned his head
i  saw the anguish in his eyes
no need for words
nothing  i could do
his banishment was final

• Ꮗ •

ah,  my love,  my fallen angel
would that  i could
heal  your wounded heart
what sin did you commit,  i wonder,
to be exiled from Heaven?

• Ꮗ •

did  you realize
you were standing at the crossroads?
was this your solitary crime?
or had you been warned not to continue
along  your path to self-destruction?

• Ꮗ •

i  hear your silent lament
your wretched soul
looking for salvation
too late….     too late….
your banishment was final

• Ꮗ •

ah,  my love,  my fallen angel
if  it were within my power
to gift you with innocence
would you so desire?
flying straight to Heaven
without a thought
for mankind?

• Ꮗ •

 mayhap a truer gift
would be a life here
on Earth
with me

One response to “Ꮂ •Ꮗ• Ꮂ fallen angel {élargi}

  1. once innocence is gone, it can never come back…
    i love the heart for the fallen angel…the desire to see him restored
    even if that means he would leave you having to go back
    to heaven…that is selfless…

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
