Fallen (poem)


in the end I was always

a child of the dark, even though

once I was a shining light

there I was, in Paradise

but my heart was uneasy

never a team player, all I wanted

was a change in the management,

I was cast out, and fell a long way…

Hell was already there, all I did

was make it my own, a reflection

of my own torment

my wings broken, through

the long millennia they began

to heal, until one day

I launched into the air

and for the first time flew

above my own dark kingdom

I think I’ve been watching too much Lucifer lately…

This was my second response to the prompt of a first flight provided by the Carrot Ranch August 13 Flash Fiction Challenge.

      Seriously, you can use /spacer to add an extra bit of space between blocks. That’s helped some of my layouts, but it’s hardly a cure all.
