of stars and seraphim

i’ve been standing outside for hours

screaming to an empty sky until my vocal chords (heartstrings) are torn and raw

i think i hear the angels screaming too (ethereal beings, ripped limb from limb)

or maybe it’s just your voice

they sound the same

and as i collapse onto the frozen ground,

convulsing in pain,

with nothing but the looming void above me,

i realize this is the closest i will ever get to the Divine

***

i was Icarus

grazing the Sun (you)

tasting paradise

feeling your heat on my skin

then plummeting

my wings being torn from my body

my ribs being broken in

my lungs filling with water

but the only thing my mind could register

was the residual warmth of the Sun

***

so maybe i am akin with the dying angels

with nothing in our head but agonized screaming

as our souls are violently dismembered

by the very thing we once worshipped

- (is this the apocalypse, or is this my apocalypse) b.g.
