Falling Angel (by GalaxyRat)

Updated on June 9, 2017

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

You are like an angel,

but you hide your wings.

Black and charred they are,

you are all but a kind thing.

You are like an angel,

you seem to like me,

but the minute I turn my back,

you begin to fight me.

You are like an angel,

but you hide your scars,

long and bloody is your story,

and you've buried it long and far.

Really, falling angel,

do you think I cannot see?

It's as plain as day:

you've laid out all the signs for me to read.

You hide behind a computer, or a mask,

So just unfurl your wings,

So they know who you really are,

Just unfurl them for the world to see.

      People definitely hide behind masks for so many different reasons.
