Even Angels CryEven Angels Cry by nevergetfooledagain
You placed me so high upon your pedestal,
I forgot how to breathe
thin air making me light-headed;
I, who lived among the clouds,
who used to fly.
Angel, you called me,
radiant and perfect.
And angel I was, until I saw your face,
and knew I had mistaken Heaven
for the paradise in your embrace.
So I walked away from eternity,
to spend short days with you
and gave up my wings
to fly in your arms.
But it was an angel you wanted,
and wingless, I lost your love.
I had sacrificed all for you,
only to find that you longed for
what was unobtainable.
Now flightless and broken,
I wander through endless days
bearing the weight of stranger's stares
the ones who can see this fallen angel
with the tears on his face.
4cry4 by rowenblack
let the tears cleanse your face
moist trails of failed paths of the past
release the fear in a gentle flood of pain
thoughts run rampant in a wounded mind
breathe the salty taste of regret
unfulfilled dreams mist over once brilliant eyes
wipe away the unspoken truths from your lips
