Fallen Angel - Poem by Jay Lude

The light skips across the silent earth
Like a child on their way to school
Unaware of the darkness and evil
That is lurking on the ground below
The black birds soar through the ocean sky
Like cowards, afraid to land on the ground
As a man some called king, but most called monster
Has closed his eyes, never to see the light of day again
Holes are lined up like soldiers
In a single file line across his forehead
Spitting up blood from the crown he didn’t deserve
Though he looks bony and lifeless
A king he was and a king he shall remain
A spear has created an open wound in his side
Which now cries a river of blood
That races past his stomach an down his leg
A man blanketed in a soft thick cloak
Fights to hold back the powerful demon tears
But the women is not as strong
And she releases her tears of sorrow
“Why couldn’t I take your place” she thinks
“Why have I lost my one and only son”
Her face is ghostly pale
And her body is hidden in her coat
Blood streams through her lifeless bony fingers
But she continues holding her child
Squeezing him like she did the day he was born
A once bright white cloth, is now a thick bloody red rag
As it holds the life sucking crown in its grasp
The crown that rested on the monstrous king’s head
Stealing every inch of life from him that it could
A man has dropped to his knees to pray
For the monster he had called king
Who is nothing now but a Fallen Angel
