Atrum Angelus (Amberly ©12/17/2012) - Poem by Amberly Orlando
A spark in the darkness
A silvery silhouette
Fear swells up in my belly
The glint of steel my eyes detect
Who is this stranger in the night
Yet I have a deep sense of knowing
I gaze further into the darkness
The silent silver glowing
'Move into the light, Sir
So that I may see your face.'
My breath catches in my throat
My heart begins to race
Slowly the black shadow moves
Ever so stealthily and keen
Undulating as it approaches
Until at last he is seen
'Why, you are an Angel!
But your wings are so dark'
He is graceful yet fallen
His blade rises and pierces my heart
I stumble toward him
Not a trace of fear in my eye
'My love, I will set you free
But first something inside you must die.'
His voice so strong and calm
Falling into his arms he eases my mind
'Let go of your past regrets
Because now, My love, you are mine.'
