Dark Angel [Masterpiece]

How do I begin to paint you, oh winged creature
What do I name thee, high warrior in the rank of angels
Brave and of valor as in the prayers of a preacher

Encased in the cocoon of your feathers – dark
Perched on the top of a arc so magnificent and large
Looking down upon your wards with a protecting spark

How do I begin to paint you, oh beautiful stranger
Dare I strip you down bare
Sense of modesty should I endanger

Do I smear you like an amateur
Dab you in the all kinds of colour or portray
Darkness amongst the light, of that I am unsure

Depicting you not an easy endeavour
Lending words to define the vision unearthly
Care I seek perfection, it might take forever

This is a dangerous path that I now tread
Bringing you out of shadows for the world to see
Willing these words a thousand miles to spread

This has to be one of the hardest piece that I’ve ever written for reasons unknown (even to me). I’d also like to give a special thanks to my friend Dakota for helping me sort out the chaos and finding the finish. I hope you will enjoy it as much as you’ve enjoyed the the rest of Masterpiece.

Views and thoughts are always welcome.

Best,
R.

    1. Muchas Gracias! Can’t thank you enough for your kind words. It’s funny that you should mention wine, what comes next or thereafter will be in the essence of your words – intoxicating without a touch or a sip.

      P.S. I’d really like some Dark Chocolate right now… too bad that’s too late for me to go out and buy some!
