Rust-Stained Tears

Vermilion tears down an angel's cheek,
Sorry to say, did not dry this very week;
Rather, turning to rust as devil deals
Lust, a thrust, parlay, iniquity steals.

Indulge in saturnine preludes to this
The dark interludes in a crimson kiss
Bleed hell and cry blood for a twist
They sneak and walk among deepening bliss.

They look to kill Christ again, auguring a
Warning, heed heaven's call to halt decay
Show reverence for the ecclesiastic 
Kiss the clay, and the mold is fantastic.

Trust that guide, drawing lightning in the back
Calling forward to the front of the pack;
Love all your brothers, for then you can trust  
They too cry them, colored in muddy rust.

    like those vermilion tears (had to look it up) there's alot of hidden inferences to the ecclesiastic and the enemy thereof. And the third stanza is exactly what is being attempted in the world stage and probably always will. you have written a mysterious poem here Tim and causes one to think, thank you for your encouraging comment on my poem

    This seems laden with deep meaning. Kind of a hard one for me to get but I sure love the imagery, Tim. You have a great vocabulary!!
