An Angel's Lie - Poem by Cori Arbuss

Forever more, the blessed be
Forever falling, they shant desire
Forever waiting, the angels sigh
Forever needing their golden lyre

To sing their songs of sweet redemption
While we wait in our hallucination
And tasting of the fire of eternal damnation
And while we linger in our amiable deception

And though the blood of our martyrs has been split
The scars on our souls will never fade
Though we preach of good will and prejudice to none
The bond holding our lives has at last been frayed

Looking at you reminds me of such
These deadly gazes hold the key
Yet like light to flies I linger in your dark glow
In your shallow heart of pleasure and hidden glee
