A Sad Girl's Prayers(Fallen Angel No Longer)

by AmberSherrellxxIve Been Sitting Here Trying To Find Myselfxx   Jul 21, 2007


Tears of crimson slide down her cheek
Painful relief is what she seeks
Mindful of those who really do care
But her skin she longs to tear
Looking away from the deceiving blade
She closes her eyes and starts to pray...

"Dear Lord, please take this pain away
My selfcontrol is starting to drain
The blades taunt and the razors tease
Please God,I'm on my knees
I can't seem to look at it in any other angle
Lord,I'm just your fallen angel."

A bottle of whiskey and a couple of beers
Draws out a young girls fear
She goes to her room and listens to them yell
Her life at home was a living hell
A razorblade lingers in the shade
But she closes her eyes and starts to pray...

"Dear Lord,please take this pain away
It seems like my whole worlds turned gray
My parents fight and I feel so alone
Tears and heartache is all I've known
I can't seem to look at it in any other angle
Lord,I'm just your fallen angel."

See that boy with amazing green eyes?
He's the reason I'm still alive
I fell in love with him when I was fourteen
And now he means the world to me
As I'm looking at him and him alone
I think of all the love he's shown
No matter what happens,come what may
I smile as I start to pray...

"Dear Lord,thank you for blessing me with him
Now life on Earth isn't so grim
The blades don't taunt and the razors never tease
He's finally put my heart at ease
Whether he's my lover or just my best friend
With him my life I want to spend
I'm a fallen angel no longer,I'm standing tall
He's my guardian angel and he won't let me fall."

    This is so strong
    the way youcombine life scenes and prays makes the poem so expressive, emphasises the emotion in it+it fits the idea of "fallen angel" so well, all these contrasts
    5/5
