An immortal Love

Written by: steven cooke

Hiding within the feathers of an angels wing
My love waits, shy to the world
Content to fly, never wanting to stay
Until I met you

Now I shed these feathers
To lay with a mortal angel
Whose love
 Will forgive my fall from grace
For my heaven now resides
In the being of you

I have traded immortality for your kiss
A mortal kiss soft, moist, like the birth of a rainbow,
Leaving me with no fear
My sacrifice to love, 

But love is a feast
And illusions dance in its shadow
And temptation has a price
For my angel danced with destiny
Now I stand on the precipice alone
An outcast from heaven
With broken wings that can fly no more

The west wind has deceived me, took her away
Like so many broken hearts before me
And my dreams follow in the salt
Of a billion tears

This lost love I keep locked away
Filling a fools emptiness
Deep within my soul
Now and then it escapes

Consuming me in hopeless longing
A trigger for Suicidal thoughts,
In the darkness, just before dawn.
A burden to my being, never to be lifted.

This love is my only Companion
For angels do not look upon me anymore 
This burden is mine to carry
To slow my walk through The Valley of death

For love is my cross 
But it is a thing of beauty to show God
And perhaps within my suffering
 He will understand
That love and loss is the price
We angels pay for 
Living a mortal life.
