Fallen Angel

A hurried epithet and hastened promise

Ethereal semblance , songs of praise

Blinded by a momentary dazzle

A fragile pedestal quickly razed


Horrified by the vicious smile

Feigned wings brought to light

A fallen angel swirls in the dark

Dispirited soul , branded sprite.

— that mishmash

  1. Reminds me of a poem I once wrote about how we place our hero/heroine on pedestals to make up for our own weaknesses and so when they err, we crush them. Think of many famous people this happens to. 🙂

        When Ure Hero Falls


        when your hero falls from grace
        all fairy tales r uncovered
        myths exposed and pain magnified
        the greatest pain discovered
        u taught me 2 be strong
        but im confused 2 c u so weak
        u said never 2 give up
        and it hurts 2 c u welcome defeat
        when ure hero falls so do the stars
        and so does the perception of tomorrow
        without my hero there is only
        me alone 2 deal with my sorrow
        your heart ceases 2 work
        and your soul is not happy at all
        what r u expected 2 do
        when ure only hero falls
