Fallen Angel

by debbylyn   Feb 10, 2007

The Angel and Mystic
With poems and notes
Crossed patterns and sorrows
With words they each wrote

The twig and the topaz
Of fiber and fire
Burned in their hearts
Lit a funeral pyre

No mercy, lost Angel
The iceberg too steep
Heart torn, the Mystic
In blood snow he weeps

Fallen the Angel
Wanders once more
Searching each grain
As it washes to shore

The Mystic he promised
To meet her again
But billions of echoes
Float through the glen

As emptiness fills her
She makes her descent
Cursed her soul cries
An eternal lament
