    Newer poem, very different from the last one I posted...

    Fallen Angel

    betrayed in my childhood
    grieving an oath broken
    afraid in the wild wood
    a sheep in wolf's clothing

    and not since infancy
    did i slumber peacefully
    sad thoughts swim a crimson sea
    never does thunder cease to lull me

    in the north i sought solace
    to escape those who cursed me
    returned to find home demolished
    now at whoever's mercy

    i knelt towards east and offered prayer
    a plea for the least bit of sanity
    father please, your daughter is scared
    overwhelmed with calamity

    faith's very first lesson
    i had wandered south
    in that hour of decision
    i succumbed to doubt

    sunset had caught my eye
    following the west road
    witnessed by every star in sky
    i awake at the threshold

    as a first in my whole life
    feeling such peace and calm
    so i was blinded by my strife
    not seeing you with me all along
