Fire and angels

The angel smote down,

a man with fire,

and the man lying on the ground

asked.

Why me?

His soul in fragments.

Fire licked around the tendrils of his soul

Save me he cried

pouring out his soul before the angel.

To save you by fire

is safer than to expose you to ice

In your condition

Could you have hoped for any

more or less.

When the fire had consumed the man’s soul

It reunited into one whole

and he cried out blessings to the angel

You have made me whole, where I was not

But I curse you, for I was going

to follow the broken fragments of my soul home.

You have robbed me of the opportunity to do so.

Build a bridge but climb no higher

the angel said.

Where you head, men are lost

Knights are consumed by loss

and warriors never see the light again.

You lie the man said

there is always light.

But what good is light, the angel said.

If you cannot see it.

Without fear

The sun falls in fragments through the window.

And my heart is in fragments inside me.

The light continues to shine at the window.

And the inner light inside me

shines through like a window.

The light that holds my heart together

is leaving me

for the eastern shore.

Where beings have left before me

never to return.

The sound of a song on a distinct flute

plays to harm me.

I cannot be blind,

but all i can do is feel.

You ask me what the justice of love is

and it is but a song

that plays through the dark night.

What is love lost?

But a child lost.

I have no answers

but I do not seek the beginning of answers anymore.

I hear the voices of the many dead

who sigh out at me.

But i grip my face in my hands

in a place no one can see.

There is a place beyond heaven and hell

Where you still exist to me.

Over and over and over.

It is home

and it is true.

Through the many guises

of who you used to be,

I pretend I am where you still are,

but i have fallen without ceremony.

Without fear.

An instinct for pain tames me.

It is the only thing that can tame me.

Where my trust fails,

A memory of you holds me together.

It is the only thing that holds me

from past to future.

And in this sadness I bow down

Before great angels

who knew what love can do

and still they yield

to a higher power.

And even if you did not love me

What small part of me you did love

I commit to a higher power.

because your touch redeems me.

Remain

the wind blows through my hair

i see everything

the love in my heart

never fails in this life

or the next.

the ground caves

the sun goes down

but i remain.
