Caida del Cielo

“Be silent, sweet child”

This sin was not yours
Wounds wide open that sting and burn
Pulled from the womb of a pink cradle
Now in darkness you toil

Eyes once filled with grace
Cloaked with oil and blood hate
Tormented as you wonder
In a hellish embrace

Night after night your innocence he takes
Your purity does break
With no sign of escape
Within labyrinths you remain

“Silence…” he says “You must obey”

Speak now no evil
Not one word of strife
Once an angel
Now fallen from paradise

Psyche turned asunder
Vortex of convincing lies
Marbles of black water
A secret held inside demon eyes

“Be silent… Sweet, sweet child”

I’m your typical young woman who delves in all things artistic… and conventional. Writing is a hobbie—and a preferred one at that. I love music as much as I love reading. Its like breathing. I don’t like false and pretentious people, I’m not quick to anger and I consider myself a dreamer. That’s me in a nutshell, I guess.
