One Winged Angel

By Topaz Lilith

I defied God, so he grabbed hold of my wings.
He ripped one from my back and the feathers shriveled and turned to dust in his hand.
He cast me from heaven, and from those beautiful skies I was banned.
Setting me free, I spiraled down to earth as the one winged angel I've come to be.
For without two wings I am unable to fly.
I am unable to live as I once did in the sky.
Forced to face the consequences of my defiance.
The bloody results of my very existance.
I wander alone as my hopes slowly disappear, for my pleading cries he no longer cares to hear.
I watched as shooting stars soared above my head.
And I think back on all the things I have done and said.
To my surprise, one star grew larger.
It soared through the dark and continued to shine brighter.
With a sickening crash, it collided with the ground.
I held my breath and waited for any sound.
I watched as you climbed from the deep hole, and to my surprise, you were another lost soul.
On your knees, I tried to keep away.
But there were so many things I wanted to say.
Along your back but a bloody mess.
And at that moment I knew, you were nearly wingless.
Cast from heaven just as I had been.
The darkness and horrors we both have seen.
And then it hit me, I held out my hand.
You took it and together we both took a stand.
With your arm around my shoulders, and I held tight onto your waist.
We moved our wings with gentle grace.
As we took flight and soared through the night, I found my missing piece.
Another one winged angel I will never release.
We flew to heavens gates, and God looked at us with a grin.
For without the other, they would never let us back in.

    ...that's an amazing story: 2 desperate spirits who discovered each other & together accomplished a miracle. I'm sure their wings grew back...
