angel fall

Once an angel

                        fell

from her warm but insecure

perch in an artificial sky

damaged and breathless

afraid and in tears


i ran to her soft side

more than anxious to

help her to heal her

and hear her words of love


mending her wings and

sealing her strength

hoping she'd fly over worlds

that were also mine

and love me for something

that angels don't have


but...once healed

on the wing

she took flight from my sight

not willing to waste

her freedom on fools


so i wait with tears streaming

waiting and dreaming

and hoping that when

that angel falls again

she remembers these steady hands.
