Death Of An Angel

Falling
Tumbling down towards the Earth
Don't you see her?
Can't you stop her?
No, no
Nobody can stop the horror
It's too late now
Can't save the dead
Pure white
Her white wings look so beautiful
Oh, but what use?
They can't save her
Golden
Shimmering ringlets frame her face
Like a halo
So clean and pure
Cotton
A dress clings onto her soft curves
She's beautiful
That's no secret
So pale
So pale is her once glowing skin
Never have colour
In those sweet cheeks
Doll-like
Child-like her eyes seem innocent
Could she have sinned?
Her face says no
Slipping
Sliding towards this mortal realm
With no way back
Back to her home
Why? Why?
Why must this angel now descend?
Do all angels
Die in the end?
