The first thing that came to my mind after reading the title, the animation Corpse Bride. And the then the mood of the poem is something similar to the movie. The imagery in the poem is out of this world and so beautiful. Like this one:
“They only know sorrow as sun
dips down every day to kiss them,”
I love how the ending line is so simple after, all the imagery in the poem. “because when in darkness there is always light.”
The poem for me resembles all the outcasted people from society, which here they are called “Corpse Angels”.And how they are belittled, and becomes intimidated to face the world. But they’re reassured that there are people who care notice and about care about them.
