Dark Angel

Looking down from
A mountain of crystal shards
Each myriad prism
A trapped dream
Thrust from the valley
Of a life awry
Her tears cascading
Down glittering slopes
Halo of light wreaths
Raven locks
Feathered wisps
Falling forward
Curtaining a beautiful face
Etched with in marble pain

The tingling sensation
Of her name
Flashing in violet
And silver sheets
Across the gypsy night
Racing along her pale arms
And the memories fell aside

Dark Angel kissed the mouth
Of a world so cold and lonely
Spread her arms against
The singing winds
Lifted her face
To the moonlit sky
Pearl drops clung
To black lashes
Resting like wings
Upon ivory skin
And in that moment
She knew she could fly

Weep no more
Dark Angel
Wrapped in onyx wings
Child of ebony
Fly to the moon
I’ll see you on
The crystal mountaintop
In angels company

Artist's Description

“Why did you kiss the world goodbye?
Ciao Baby…”
The Cult – Edie

Another blow in a year that has had too many already. We only found out last night that one of my eldest daughter’s dear friends chose to take her life. Feeling horrible and needed to express.
If you read this, and it resonates for all the wrong reasons, please reach out. Your life is precious and no matter how things feel now IT GETS BETTER.

Oh baby….Why? Ciao baby
