Let Angels Drink and Cleanse

Let Angels Drink and Cleanse

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

In this room
I dream within
a complete circle
magic exists here
where angels sing
to comfort me
while they vanquish 
myriad cloaked demons
peaceful as doves
I hear them
whisper to me
lose all fear
tonight we sip
from your tears
but the shadow
in the corner
seeks to steal 
my inner light
out of sight
into the cold
eerie, vast night

Right - you are officially the coolest - Ian Curtis singing Shes lost Control - O to M to the G !!

I had thought that angels drinking in the title would have lead to a poem on fallen angels out partying and boozing it up - a kind of anti-angel scene but this was firmly in the proper angelic canon. The image of them supping the tears and defending the narrator from the soul-stealing daemon is one that will be in my minds eye for quite a while, Poppy. Amazing imagery altogether. And Ian Curtis...did i already mention him...? xD

What happened afterwards? Did you wake up? Seriously, the poem does mysterious feeling. I don't even know what that feeling is, cause its mysterious. *SIgh* I really need a life.

"tonight we sip
from your tears"
I had to stop for a second to imagine what that would look like. Love that line!

Very mellow yet haunting, especially when you mentioned the shadows...reminds me of daydreams, which I often get lost in to feel better in the moment. Beautiful work.

The poem had a quiet feel and inner thoughts of the writer.
"I hear them
whisper to me
lose all fear
tonight we sip
from your tears"
The above lines stood out to me. Thank you dear Poet for sharing the excellent poetry.

This artistic beauty really gave me a fright.
The duality really shook me up.

That's really beautiful! Light prevails, but the darkness is always present!
