Angels

Angels

A Poem by w
"

She was an angel.

"

Do not go quietly and to the darkness do not succumb,
for it awaits you silently and begs for you to come.
But if you go do not go lightly, go loudly and go proudly
even though it is too cold for angels to fly tonight.

Author's Note

This was the second stanza:

Do not fall ungracefully with your arms at your side,
just plummeting downward without any pride.
If you go do not go lightly, go with style and flap awhile
even though it is too cold for angels to die tonight.

This is very good, the syntax reminds me a bit of Dylan Thomas - a poem full of drama,
well written

I know, I just know that this was inspired by the increasingly popular song "The A Team" by Ed Sheeran. That's one of my favorite songs ever. I like the way you used the beautiful song writing to write one of your own beautiful songs :) it's a great poem, and I like the second stanza.

This reminds me a lot of Dylan Thomas' "Don't Go Gentle into the Good Night". The imagery and tone of your poem, really help convey the message you are attempting to get across. Great job.
