An Angel Falls
by Alexis Child
Angel come. Whisper to me.
Come in the night. Elude
Your mystery. Let me inhale
Your emotions. Let me know
Your devotions. Break through
The gloom. Angel come. Angel
Go. Invade this harrowing pain.
Tears in the rain. Come into the
Dark. Wrap me in your arms.
Bring us light. Angel come in
The dark. Fall away my heart.
Watching the black stars at night.
To this day, a life of pain, loss
And strife. You can't forget the
Ancient scars of a day so long ago.
In vain, I scream in heaven's name.
The devil takes my side. None can
Change this on earth or in space.
A demon loved the angel. She was
The white rose in the rain. The
Salvation to his pain. The demon
Loved the angel back. But she could
Never love him again.
