lost wings

A heavy weight 
Black shadows 
Upon the shoulders 
Lead heavy 
As wings fall 
Expelled from 
The garden 
That of Eden 
Bent down 
In grief 
I cried 
love lived 

My burning passion 
Shattered to 
be saved 
Broken grows stronger 
Like a fireworks 
Lighting up 
The sky 

On my knees 
I fell 
without mercy 
As the cobra 
Danced around truth 
Biting emotions 
To the ground 
Drove straight 
Into the dark side 
Of a dream 
Boiling nightmares 
Sewing hell 
Into the deep 

A distorted face 
Clouds vision 
No longer 
Do I see 
Beautiful colours 
Instead of petals 
Your thorns 
Rip the heart 
Black turns 
The rose and dies 

Growing two horns 
Boiling stew 
Seething hot pain 
To begin roasting 
Pushing to 
the deepest 
Tormenting in hell 
Hissing spitting out 
A poisonous 
stew of words 

A forked tongue 
The deceiver 
Crawling under 
The skin 
Coiling serpent 
Without truth 
Burning lies 
Twists then turns 

Destroyer of dreams 
Nightmares burns 
A circle 
Drawn with 
a poisonous tongue 
Within hell 
Dancing moths 
In silver shadows 
Reality one 
see's light
