Run free, Angel (R.I.P. Chelsea King)


She loved to run through the green forest,
Where the sun watched over her,
Where the lake’s cool and riveting motions
Met with the tranquil flow of the wind.

But the sun’s eyes
Could not change her destiny
They could not predispose her judgment
Or those of the Monster
Whose impulses were like those of a Tiger
Ready to pounce
Out of thirst, out of hunger, out of a sick taste for Vulnerability.

She ran like a deer,
Graceful and liberated,
Her eyes saw no danger
She succumbed to no fear.

But as a deer is entranced by a clean patch of grass
A Tiger finds opportunity
Strikes hard, and strikes fast.

The Tiger, the Monster,
Pounced on her body, devoured her soul
Fed her to the lake, who swallowed her whole.

The lake watched over her until the people came
It knew that the Monster would not win this game
His satisfaction would not go unnoticed
For this deer, this child, this girl
Was an Angel,
Is an Angel
And will always be.

    This might be forward, since I never knew her or about her until I read this poem, but I looked her up. And an Angel I would have to agree. Never before have I seen a smile so open and free. (Report) Reply
