Dark Winged Angel by Daryl P. Hall


I would like to write a novel

In purple ink upon your skin,

To compliment the symphony

That you composed on mine.

With every stroke I’d take,

Each character I’d write,

Would begin to form a work of art

Upon an angel so divine.

In chapter one I’d tell the story

Of the day that we first met,

How you floated down towards me

On shafts of golden light.

I’d say when first I saw you

That you stole my breath away,

Of how we talked and laughed together

As day crept slowly into night.

In chapter two I’d have to say

How your heart heard every prayer

My heart had rendered heavenward,

From this cold foreboding earth.

Of how my dark winged angel

Made her way down to my side

And tended to my wounded soul,

And gently ushered in new birth.

Then in chapter three I’d tell the world

How you set light to my heart,

How with every day that passed,

You made me feel just like a king.

I’d tell of how you’d raise me up,

How each day you would inspire.

Such was your belief in me,

I could take on the world and win.

I’d write of how you gave me fresh eyes,

In the lines of chapter four.

How I focused on the beautiful

That I once had failed to see,

You taught me how to smell the roses –

Fragrant on the summer breeze.

I heard songbirds sweetly singing,

Such were the things you did for me.

The story’s only just beginning –

Your flesh has not received the pen.

The future is unscripted,

But angel, please don’t cry,

I know that you were heaven sent

The wildest heart I’ve ever known.

With a message everlasting –

Dark winged angel, please don’t fly.
