Forgotten angels have no say?

lost sailors never rest,
they sail the seven seas,
forever more,
seeking redemption from the lives
they left behind,
forgotten angels dance on the wingtips
of butterflies,
dreaming of you and I,
death and life,
one and the same,
I envisioned the game,
created the pain,
I hold the brittle hearts,
bleached bones,
salt laden verse,
and loving thoughts
of those long gone,
in my calloused hands,
I am of the sea,
even though
ten thousand miles away,
the shadows of mountaintops,
crushes my heart,
entices my muse,
life deceives me,
betrays me,
heals me,
I feel the harshness of reality,
within my weathered veins,
curing my soul,
revitalizing my mind,
my dreams,
my nightmares,
all rejuvenated,
as the masses gather
a final time,
at the edge of yesteryear,
in search of hope
and lost memories,
they say,
home is where the heart is,
home is where the memories of your past,
forgotten dreams, the innocence of youth,
and loved ones are laid to rest,
in eternal peace,
forever more,
yet the truth evades them,
but not me,
for I see you,I hear you,I feel you,
you are an angel in the eyes
of insanity,
a raven touched by the mercy
of god,
devoid of memory,
lost in the heart of the
I see,I see,I see,
for my blood flows free,
upon the ragged ledges,
along the footpaths of my youth,
alleyways and gauntlets,
of long gone dreams,
I search for you,
I seek the dead,
in clouds of misery,
where once the angels
roamed and sang of the beauty and
freedom of home,
imprisoned now,
are they,
by the likes of you,
by me,
enshrouded by humanity,
the fire within
burns deep,
as weeping willows,
and destitute angels,
clinging to the past,
on an endless,
to nowhere,
like you,
I search,
I seek,
I find,
I lie!
