Guardian Angel. Poem by Hannah York

Guardian Angel.



Looking into her glassy eyes he saw her as she had been
The first sight was fresh to his mind
Her corn silk hair flowing, a majestic mane
Her flashing eyes, emeralds on her perfect face.
The soft curve of her body hid in the glowing sunset.

Her smile though withered and aged still tattooed into his thoughts
His only sunlight through the grim outlook of the night.
Watching her crumbling body rise and fall
He once again flashed back to the first sight
She had run, her graceful legs making her fly
She grabbed hold of him, a thunderbolt tying him to the earth
His heart straining to take flight.

He lent forward bracing for the inevitable
And tried to touch her
The familiar wall flew up, invisible ice blocking him from her
He longed to feel her warm skin
Like that night, their bodies entwining in the water
The glow warmed his chilled body
‘I love you, I'm sorry this is what I have done'
And with that last thought the darkness pulled him in once more.
