Ashes

Ashes fall like tears of weeping angels to the ground. Lives were lost and will never be found. It was when war approached in her heart without a sound. If she couldn't burn the grief, she would release hell upon this town. She wore her aching pain like a goddess in a flaming gown. A queen dressed for battle, she left only her bloodstained crown. Then her hellish fire was raised burning everything - everyone around. "Ashes, ashes!" Were her last words, "We all fall down."
