Black Angel

You saw the blackness fall from the sky
You’re winded after climbing a flight of steps
The anxiety in your body rising
As you blink at pair of dark wings

They come during the days of tears and sadness
Bringing faith inside of you
Once our falsification lies beneath
Then we are their shadows

They bring us above the agony
In this hole of pain and suffering
Your beliefs become enemies
As your spirit walk away 

The beautiful black angels
We rest under their shining black feathers
And drink the hopeless of their shadows
But help given always need returning

They open up their anger
You cry, you yell as you slip into darkness
Like a pair of wings hiding you
From the pureness in the air

My beautiful black angels
Look at me with your darkened dim eyes
Listen to my heart beat fading
As I sleep my way to heaven…

    Feels like an allegory. A lovely one at that. Those last three lines are killer. Thanks for sharing..........peace!
