Earth Angel

I disappeared last night
While sleeping in my bed
A field of lavender beneath my head
Another planet, I’ll try to map it
No user interface
It won’t escape me again…

~*~

You fell away from time

Hurtling through space

The people who saw the

Carnage thought it was

Another stray meteorite

.

The sight was sublime

Past clouds you raced

The crater you’ve left a

Deep permanent gash

Standing lone at night.

.

And you softly gaze up

At the dark bruised sky

As pure white feathers

Rained like fresh snow

From your scarred back

.

You drown in coffee cups

You dissolved sugary lies

And the crimson weather

Is dripping faint and slow

In your empty pen and pad.

.

A rejected earthen angel

What were you now to do

But blend within the realm

That they’ve dropped you

Into and be a normal being

.

You taught yourself well

Sometimes miss the clue

Lost your power’s helms

Exchanged into your new

Found emotional standing.

.

Amalgamations profound

Of prose in your halo head

As you pluck tiny narcissus

From their Garden of Eden

As if it is but your quiet sin

.

Luna’s light the only sound

Raven shadows you’ve wed

Your bleak sanity’s detritus

Loneliness your own poison

Tired in the worn human skin.

.

And the humming starlings

Disturbed your soul ponders

So you slam down windows

Hoping badly to shut out all

The rest of the lost universe

.

Your lacerated broken ivory wings

Are starting to growing back hither

As clearest veins’ pulsate and flow

Into a leathery black, and stars fall

As you write another hushed verse.

~*~

Don’t wake up
I’ll be here for centuries
Sweet magnetic energy
Nothing quite like this ever has existed
But God knows how I missed it
Gravity is losing its hold
I can feel it fading…
