The Fallen

The Fallen

A Poem by Aiden Alyx

What are falling stars? Well my child, I'll tell you what I know...

look! up above you!
those lights in the sky!
the angels are falling
the question is why
the awe on their faces
little kids eyes
watch falling stars
with looks of surprise

"mommy mommy
a falling star!" they cry,
a falling star, nothing more
but an angel who cannot fly
why is the question
how can we know?
maybe his wings
are heavy from snow

whatever the reason
i can tell you this
this angel, my dear
will never be missed
their blood runs black
this is no lie
the angels have fallen
now my child,
lets watch them die

Interesting concept! I like the last lines "now my child, lets watch them die". That makes you think. We get so excited to see falling stars. For those who believe they're angels or deceased souls being cast down, thats a really odd thing to be excited over.

Wow, this is good. Especially these lines: "why is the question
how can we know?
maybe his wings
are heavy from snow" I love the idea of falling stars being fallen angels. Though you forgot to capitalize the "i". Other than that, well done!
