Drink of Angels

Floating downward from above,
the ivory feather of an angel's 
wing.
Making love with the emerald 
earth,
a white rose starts to sing.
Virgin petals slowly born,
warm velvet against cold glass.
Slowly unfolding wings of her 
own,
she flies free at last.
Drops of ruby rain fall,
tainting the pure with lies.
Blood seeps through the purest 
petals,
they turn to ice; shatter; die.
She slowly drowns in her 
crimson sea,
after she whispers a brandy 
tear.
The feather turns coarse 
shades of jet,
drinking from her fear.
Long since forgotten she hides 
away,
a black and gray memory.
If you listen closely you can 
hear her whispers,
her prayers; her cries; her 
pleas.
