Fallen From Above: Hear The Angels Sing

In my nightmares
Abruptly I awoke-
To find a collection
Fulla tears of woe.
Fell again
Inside my dreams
Fast, so very fast
That it slooowed
In what felt like a split second
And a million years

Fallen from grace
Like an angel
From Heaven
Through out space,
Floating without orbit
And yet in a calculated
Drifting thru eternal time
At the very steadiest pace
Ever known.

With detached wings
First it’s the
That tickle
My being.
Not interpreting
Sensations properly
Until that shifting
All of a sudden
Away fading…
My God-blessed voice to sing
Hearing                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          In the background
Further n further near
From me
The Saraphs’ harps
And melodies

The sharpness of wind
All over the skin
Of my face
That of a mere mortal
So far less angelic,
Without the glow
Of my halo

“some angels yearn to be recognized but can’t bear to be exposed too long in the light they, themselves, cast over the human world.”
