Dark Angel - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

Feelings she never knew she had
running deep and jagged through her heart
For the first time
she knew what she wanted
Demanded to have it
whatever the cost
felt it would be worth it

Whispering on the winds
ancient melody
Sounds of heavens tears
cascading down-raining down
Dark angel
standing ground

Once held above all others
tired and lonely from unkempt promises
Now the distance
the emptiness shows
Dark angel standing ground
looking for loves forgiveness
On earth as it is written in heaven
standing ground
Dark angel

Thought it would be simple
go down easy and painless
Never thought it would go this far
get this rough and out of hand
What she believed forever would be
became just another one night stand
Turning heaven into hell
before tear-stained eyes

When did she open the door to him
to let him take over her heart
So complete and passionate
so overwhelming
How was he able
to bind her wings
Capture her soul
steal her golden halo

Was she taken by surprise
or is that a wishful alibi
Never knew these emotions
could get lost amid angry clouds
And she wishes she would have known
before she took the fall...
