Even Angels Cry

even angels cry

giant crimson tears
holding all the dreams and fears
of an angel of untold years
his entire soul captured
in a few fallen tears

even angels cry

his tears fall to the ground
in a god forsaken land that was never found
except by demons who gather round
as the angel's tears soften
the forgotten ground

even angels cry

his rain of tears will never end
and on the final days god will send
his angel's flaming tears that will come to mend
men's tortured souls that cry out
for the end

even angels cry

    Hi Adam, this is a beautiful, throught-provoking work. I thought "flaming tears that will come to mend men's tortured souls" painted a very strong image. Too bad that angels have to cry! Best - Carolyn
