Angels have dropped out of the sky
Leaving black plumes in their wake
The feathers from their wings
Have left tears on the faces of those who loved them
And lost them.
Angels have swopped down from Heaven
Stealing everyone’s hearts
Holding them tightly in their porcelain hands
Selfishly clutching all of that love
And letting it go.
Angels have spoken their tender song
Wailing across the lands
The soft words carry them home
Dripping sorrows on mortal cheeks
And silence reigned.
Angels once roamed this earth
Treading on heavenly feet
Blackening the ground with their blood
Leaving us only to wish
That we had the last word.
