to an angel

you came with gossamer wings
to dazzle this prince away
from his tower of isolation;

you called with silken voice
to convince this exile
to reclaim his rejected royalty;

you smiled with such divinity
to conjure illusions of grandeur
in this frog’s little heart;

you flitted just beyond my fingertips,
beckoning me until i followed,
leaving behind my armor for the open plains.

and there, like the vengeance of lightning,
you struck with lethal silence
to burn me where i stood,

completely, thoroughly;
you have chased me back into my shell,
never to laugh again, never to love anymore.
