Free Falling Angel

Another slow silent sigh creeps across our

eyes and reminds us of the lives

we used to lead

I remember fearing the failing leaders

as we dogs nipped at their heels

hoping for little salvations

and it’s a crazy kinda hatred

that burns in my mind

the kind that makes you cry

when you pull the trigger

alas, against the ghosts of your hopes,

the shared dreams of a moonless night,

and the heartfelt meanderings on a dawnless day

We pay our prices

Our idols expect their tributes

For tribulation is what we all most desire

when our lives are on fire

So step softly in the valley

temptation is stalking you

like a doe in the wood

unseen but felt beyond

the slow blue horizon

There is no distinction between right and wrong here

it is merely the perceptions of the strong

taking hold

do not let fly your gasp of innocence

the angels know you better than that

Iconoclastic nuances permeate your conversation

reality building walls in a fantasy

Some may walk in shadow

others tread in light

We have praised the dying prophets who

whisper promises cloaked in blasphemy

I can fear for myself no more

as I no longer fear you either

quiet, quiet now…

everything will not be alright

  1. Can I just say -BRAVO!

    My favorite line –
    So step softly in the valley

    temptation is stalking you

    like a doe in the wood

    unseen but felt beyond

    the slow blue horizon

    There is no distinction between right and wrong here

    it is merely the perceptions of the strong

    taking hold

  2. gotta be honest, i got a little rush when i saw your byline as the page loaded… and it didn’t disappoint. as always, loved the hardcore imagery, (when you pull the trigger / alas, against the ghosts of your hopes), but was delighted to see introspection & philosophy soothing me as the piece unfurled ( do not let fly your gasp of innocence / the angels know you better than that). killer intro, as well. keep it up
