The Fallen Angel


There are no stars out tonight
There is no moon in the velvet curtain of dark
It is Halloween
The Devil shall have sway
His minions walk into the dark
Fire in the eyes
Hate and honey on the tongue
One hobbles out with the monstrosities
One of the fallen
A Fallen Angel escaped from Hell
The Dark Man coming forth once more
Can he find his way to Heaven once more
Your window up
You sit on the window sill
Looking into the heart of your loneliness
A movement somehow catches your eye
You see him 
The Fallen Angel come to Earth
His wings leathery and limp
His body bowed with woes un-numbered
The pain of eons in the dark 
Almost Soulless eyes
All he wishes is a way back to paradise again
To see once more the glory that is life eternal
Only one sign of love can save him from his eternal Hell
Then he sees the vision of an Earthly Angel
An Earthly Angel who had been looking into the sadness of her past
With the last ounce of power in withered wings
He rises oh so slowly to said Angel
The light within her Soul beckoning him
But kiss him once sweet Angel
And he shall head home with love in his heart
Love for the Earthly Angel who saved him
A woman's intuition, she understands
She can possibly save two souls this night
She beckons to the Fallen One to come closer
With tears in his eyes the dark shape moves slowly forward
Each movement of these wings an agony
She takes his face in her hands
Yes! Do it sweet Angel
She kisses the Dark Man 
Deep and sensuous
In that moment the dark around them becomes brilliant light
In those prescious few moments his Soul becomes light again
Paradise will be his once more
He will leave a gift for the Earthly Angel
She may come into his paradise at any time
She will never be alone again
He changes before her eyes
The Angel of light once more reborn
The one who walks in the shadows
He is once more the Dark Man eternal
But now he is her Dark Man eternal
He must go now
A Soul cries to him in the night
This is the way of the Dark Man
The eternal shadow
His wings now soft and glossy white
Soon he shall need them not
He kisses the Earthly Angel
He sighs and is gone into the night
He is gone, she is alone
No! not alone, never again alone
For within a Soul of light dwells the Dark Man
He who had been the fallen Angel
Now, the child of light goes into the room, she closes the window
She no longer feels cold
She feels the warmth of the Dark Man within her
She will never be alone again
Tonight two souls have been saved
Soul to Soul eternal.

    Hi Sandra, thanks for dropping by and the comment. Even in Hell, if you wait your moment, the road to freedom and redemption can be opened. The dark man escaped and through the help of one woman he was redeemed. The magic still lives. Thanks for the Congrats. I forgot this one had been in a contest. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Ram, Thanks for dropping by and the comment. It seems a while ago since this one was in a contest, I didn't even remember. A mind like a sieve, most definitely. Thanks for the congrats. I can remember writing it, took a few days. He is now redeemed and the Dark Man writes again. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Griend....MIKE.

    Hi Andrea, thanks for dropping by and the comment and the congrats. This one has grains of truth sprinkled throughout it. There was a man who fell far into his own inner darkness. Slowly a woman helped him back into the light, through her Love. Sometimes this man wants to go back to his darkness to hide. Now he walks the shadows spreading light. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Skat, thanks for the placing and the congrats, and for hosting the contest. You got some good stuff in this one. The Dark man found his way to heaven again and now he walks the shadows doing God's work. The shadow people exist, not only in imagination. I wonder if I was around when Vlad was young. Life can be strange. Have a good day. Catch you later....MIKE.

    Hi Rose, thanks for dropping by and the comment. An Angel did fall. He was saved by a woman. Halloween, Satan has his doors opened and all sallie forth into the dark of a mortal world. Love can be found in the strangest places Rose, by the strangest people. Ethereal can Love mortal and vice-versa. Have a nice day Rose. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.
