Shadow of Angel

Oh, shadow of angel
Nothing but wind
Nothing but art
Strength under his wings
Endearing me
Immerse into heaven

Potion burns my veins
River of magenta
I didn’t know it was
Until it drowned my brain

A gaze
Consuming sanity
Mouth falls and rises
Muffling my distress
Penetrating tongue
Imprisoning my escape
Wings eventually
Metamorphose into claws
Lacerating senses

They say
Darkness rouses
From light’s absence
Darkness is your shadow
An engorged blind of sorrow

From beneath the silk
Oozing smoke of blood
They swim
The seed
(They do)
Unable to avoid
Mischief of your plant

Seconds fly too fast
Irreversible and true
I now bear what a curse
Another form of you

Would run
Only if can
Restless ache in between

Thought it was wind
Thought it was art

Should have run
While I still can.
