From the shadows came darkness
The net of safety bursts open
Frailty this angel now lays broken
On deaf ears words of despair fell
Never spoken were the cries and woes
Seldom awakened such physical needs
Love turned to heart of stone
No more the angel who once was
Heaven no longer its true place
In secret passion released
The wounded angel embraced
Searching for Heaven’s place
For vanity’s sake, humility’s face
In disgrace painful realization
An emptied soul suffocating
Mirrored images from the past
Fear, awaking the emptiness
The gates close as darkness prevails.
