The Angels of the Past

{By Rose Diamund}

As the darkness sets

As the sun subsides

The moments break in two

She feels her soul crumble insides

The storm set in slowly

The lightning flashes bright

Her mind goes blank

As she stares into the night

That girl with bright smile

That girl with the laugh

Now trapped as a shadow

Of the Angels of the past

Remembering only pains her

As she recalls the past

And she sees her old self

And the stingings last

That girl with bright smile

That girl with the laugh

Now trapped as a shadow

Of the Angels of the past

The light now is unfeeling

It burns and it hates

Only memories haunt

And she stands in its wake

She stands on the sidelines

She will never forgive

She closes her eyes

And lives the half-life she now lives

That girl with bright smile

That girl with the laugh

Now trapped as a shadow

Of the Angels of the past

The Angels surrounded

By horror and despair

Trapped behind the shadows

Watching happiness, stare

That girl with bright smile

That girl with the laugh

Now trapped as a shadow

Of the Angels of the past
