Songs of the Angels

Death has killed the angel she falls from the heavens making the night cry the sickle rips at my soul tearing at the despair ripping out the life

My angel, she protects me shielding the blood he sheds my angel, my love her eyes, tears of the past she sleeps, her long solemn sleep forever i will never see my love again she bleeds and the stranger takes her away from me i am wandering amelessly into forever hopeful for another, another love an angel to take me in her arms, comfort me, love me forever

you know my friend ive been walking on a really strange path lately im so glad you were not there to see my fall, to see me passing on

my wound so deep my veins open wide letting flow my distress letting flow my requests

listen my friend as no one wanted to hear, im telling you now so weak was my hope so cold the world around so strong the calls my pain invited echoes to the rain anguish coiled in the gut like a starving worm fallen, between...

i slide down the hole at the center of my soul ive given up, ive given up, larvae rots

for i let the angel rise

when i am dead, my dearest, sing no sad songs for me; plant thou no roses at my head, nor shady cypress tree be the green grass above me with showers and dewdrops wet; and if thou wilt, remember, and if thou wilt, forget.

-Christina Rossetti
