My thoughts are fluid,
My eyes are bare,
My wings are broken,
The skies could tell
My body descends,
Like a falling leaf,
Angels tried to catch me,
But my spirit is just weak
My blood caressed the earth
What a bounty of red!
Their eyes were nailed upon me
I was your slave until the end
Death is a blessing,
Death is divine,
Death is the beginning,
Let death be mine!

so Victor had his way and will.. this is dark, but however i like the first part very much.. the third stanza makes me think of the frailty of human body.. furthermore, angels never are weak, and they never stop loving

Great pice but L7 sounded off to me.

I like this, but in some areas feels forced and in others the flow suffers for the rhyme. Still really like it. Good work.

nice start, markfelician.

this is one of the most popular and toughest
topics poets write about. defy rhyme if you must
to have an even flow and tighter piece. watch the
meter even if it doesn't have to be uniform all through
out. those are just some of the many things i've learned
here the hard way and still got a long way to go.

someone here always says one's best poem will have to
be his next one and he's right. so let this be your stepping
stone for that masterpiece in the making.

you get a 10-fave for your best work so far.

the falling sigh, oh my, oh my, why do we continue to cry, oh my -- you've captured the falling darkness with rhyme that lifts the soul, oh my, here we go --

At the last part, i felt like there was an explosion. It's moving.

This was like driving over a hump in the road that you couldn't really see until you got real close and it feels like the wheels come off the ground. Woah. This really surprised me, I just didn't expect the end, I could tell where it was going but not until it was already there, and then... woah.
