quixotic

Posted to Poetry




last night
an angel
came to me
pressed his
lips upon my brow
as my eyelids
fluttered open
he said
"fear nothing now"
with wingless
arms wrapped
round me
we began our
stellar flight
looking through me
to my very soul
i knew we
travelled home tonight
i clung
to him and
flew through time
without a
single fear
the drop i felt
upon my cheek
pure joy
within that tear
his strong embrace
so comforting
i knew
this man
was love
returning me
to my
place of birth
and to my
brothers above
blackness overcame me
and again
when i saw
light
it was
the morning
sun rise
and i recalled
last night
sadness filled
my every pore
i could not
help but grieve
for my
beloved angel
was merely
make-believe.
