Deadly Angel - Poem by Zeki Majed

I heard once of a story
They say, heaven has become hell
And all the beautiful angels fell
Down to Earth, with their broken wings
Now only a shell of what they used to be
But we humans were not meant to see
The heavenly until our souls flew free
From those weak bodies we were in…
I was never made to breathe
The breath that comes through her soft lips
Never to kiss, those heavenly white cheeks
That ignited to a hint of red, every time our eyes met
I was never meant to hold her gentle figure
In an embrace, for she was my souls mirror
Those rivers that flow on my face
Were lost in an empty race with the rhythm in my chest
That played a calm melody, until it had to depart
I saw an angel, she stole my heart
She made my life worth living, and her leaving made it hard
We weren't meant to love one another, so she left me scarred
I am just another lonely man, lost in misery
Now heartless stuck in history
Writing these words of love, to the woman that killed me…
