Angel Falls

I said she was an angel,
I saw her in the sky.
I looked upon her Halo of light,
she taught me how to fly.

On wings of golden promises,
through clouds of future dreams.
I swore she was an angel,
strange how nothing’s as it seems.

We walked the skies together,
I held her in my heart
as birds tweeted “She’s an angel!”
Well, I thought so from the start.

But time it turned against us
and the wind blew us astray.
She said: “I may be an angel
but this angel just can’t stay”.

She plucked my wings right from me,
I crashed down from height so tall.
From the Golden Gate of that Heavenly state,
it was a Hell of a way to fall.

    1. Thank you for your feedback. 🙂 Last year was a very dramatic one for me. The opening line of “A Tale of Two Cities” comes to mind: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” (e.g the end of a 15 year long relationship including a still ongoing messy custody battle in the minus column and starting a new relationship with a lady who I’m convinced will be the love of my life in the plus column).

      On the bright side, it gave me plenty to write about and hopefully there will be many more pieces that you will enjoy.
