ANGELWINE


ANGELWINE

__________

SHE CLENCHED HER FISTS

WHATEVER YOU SAY

THE DEAD EYED MAN

DARKMOON RISING

IN THE UNVOICED COMMAND

I AM NOT GOING

TO FIND AGAIN

BANGING ON THE

BLOODY DOOR

SITTING HAVING A DRINK

THE STREETS WERE

DESERTED NOW

SHE COULD STILL FEEL

OH GOOD LADY

I HEAR THE VIBRATING SOUND

OF YOUR VOICE

IN THE SILENCE

OF THE WALLPAPERED

BUILDINGS OF THIS

FOREVER PAGE

TO EACH BEING THE

WORDS WRITTEN

GO THROUGH EACH

SO CONFLICTED

CONFUSED

AND LONGING TOO

SIX WORDS TO

MY GROWN KITTEN

FOR I HEAR IT

IN THE BREASTS

OH MY I HEAR IT

IN THE THIGHS

IN THE SATIN STAINS

OF TIGHT FABRIC

OR IS IT LEATHER

HOW WICKED IS THEE

TO WALK BY YOUR SIDE

OUT INTO THE

FOUL NIGHT WILL I NEVER GO

CURVED MY TONGUE

THICK AND WEEPING

IN THE CHEMICALS

OF THIS

SWEET BLOOD THAT FLOWS

TWO WORDS TO

KNOW YOUR SOUL

OH FOR ME PLEASE

PLEASE IS THE BECKONING

ONE SPOKEN

WHISPERED

YOU WANT ME TO SAY

IT LOUD AND CLEAR

THOSE WORDS

THAT TURN MY HEART

FROM MUSH TO

ROMANTIC PASSION

OH WILL YOU SAY THEM

SWEETLY ON YOUR

LIPS AGAIN

ITS HEARD IN THE NIGHT

SCOWLS THEY MAKE

THIS SCARS ARE

WRAPPED TIGHT AROUND

THIS HEART

ANOTHER IN AND OUT

THE SMOKE

THE BREATHLESS

TO THIS RESURRECTED

CREATIVE PULSE

FOR THE DELICIOUS PAIN

PRICKLED OVER THIS

SKIN SHHH!

WHISPERED IN MY EAR

THIN SMILE STRETCHES

OVER HER LIPS

DEEP AND IN THIS DOVE

THE PLANETARIUM

PERCHED OWL ON

THE CLOCK TOWER

OF THE PINCHED GREY

LIKE A HUGE GLASS EGG

READY TO TOPPLE

THESE SHARP CONCUSSIONS

IN THE WOKEN HOURS

WALKING ON THE COBBLES

WET WITH STARLIGHT

SHIFTED IN BEFORE ME

LIKE FLINT MUSCLES

STRAINING AGAINST

THESE NOW BROKEN

CHAINS

PAIN IN THE SKULL

LYING IN THE ALLEY

LIKE A DEMON

WITH WINGS WIDE

HAIR WILD EYES BLACK

WITH FURY

THE DARK SOUL

REACHES INTO THE SPINE

OF THIS WHITE ROBED ROGUE

GRANTED

TEMPORARY SANCTUARY

IN AN IMPOSSIBLE WORLD

MADE IT PERFECT

UNDER THE BLISTERED CEILINGS

SHIVERED

IMAGINING THE SCENES

SO HER JOB WAS TO PUT HER

IN A CAGE AND KEEP HER THERE

OH HOW COULD SHE

NOW AS ATTRACTED IN HER

ATTENTIONS TO THE SEAT

ALL THE WAY

TO THE OLD HOUSES

SCORE WITH THE CROSSBOW

SMASHED FRAGMENTS

TO LAY WITH YOU

UNDER THE VAST EXPANSE

OF STARS

THE ANGELS WINGS

LOOMED HUGE AND BLACK

IN THE STARLIT GLOOM

WILL YOU ALLOW

THIS TO BE SACRIFICED

A BLUR OF DARKNESS

THE ANGEL PUSHED THE

SWORD AWAY

AND LAID DOWN THE

BEATING HEART

AND LOOKED STRAIGHT

INTO MY EYES

AND WALKED UP TO ME

AND SAID WITH THIS KISS

THAT COULD KILL

IT WILL SAVE YOU

AND FROM THIS DAY

FORWARD

YOU WILL BE

FREE UNDERSTAND

YOU WILL ALWAYS

BE FREE

NO MORE THE WILD ROSE

OR THE TWISTED

BLACK WIDOW

OF THE HAUNTING SCREAMS

THAT ARE ETERNALLY SILENT

SPIRALLED

DOWN LIKE A THIN SKELETON

THE ANGELS HANDS

CAME DOWN AND TOUCHED

AND CARESSED IN THE

BRIGHT EVENING SKY

AND IN THE MORNING

GONE AGAIN

TO THE MIST OF THE

DEW THAT IS THE FOREVER

WEEPING TEARS

FOR A LOVE

THAT IS ALWAYS

ONLY REMAINING

WHEN YOU CLOSE

YOUR EYES

AND ONE DAY YOU

WILL SEE WHY

ITS THERE AND NOT HERE

FOR SHE DOESN'T

HAVE THE LUXURY

OF WORRYING ABOUT

THAT WHICH TIME

HAS NO TIME FOR

INWARDS THE GLASS

BREAKS OVERHEAD

WHIRLED SHE DID

TURNED AROUND

TO SEE IT CRASH

AND GO THERE IS NO

LOGICAL REASON FOR THAT

OH MY

FOREVER IN THIS

GLOBAL WEIGHTED DOWN

SHOWERED IN THE
