A Fallen Angel With A Prayer…

A familiar face in a mirror… eyes painted black

 A reflection that takes her… faraway back

Deep in her mind… his memory still lingers

Promises of the moon… stars and the sky

A broken heart… was all he left her

 Suffering alone… with all of  his lies

A life so bitter… a broken woman

With nothing… her back to the wall

Paints her lips… with red desire

A new face… every nightfall

A fallen angel… with pleasures to offer

Love… doesn’t exist anymore

She smiles… to the face in the mirror

Outside… the night has started to fall

Inside her heart… a prayer she whispers

“They may take this body… but God will only have my soul”

  5. It could have been about many things, but ““They may take this body… but God will only have my soul” revealed it all–well written emotional poem with a powerful end.
