After the Fall

After the Fall

Why does each breath feel so painful
Inside these trembling captive walls
Holding a heart that beats in stillness
I scarce can move after the fall
A vow was whispered so sincerely
And I embraced you with urgency
As a mother inhales her infant
Your sweet fragrance infuses me
I touched your soul and held you gently
Inside the hollow of my hand
I kissed your mouth oh so intently
I knew your love you were my man
Deep in your eyes I saw a shadow
That cast a darkness over me
And I no longer was your angel
Nor the queen I used to be
Pinioned wings can never fly
Through the heavens up above
A fallen angel deprived of courage
Lies here barren afraid to love
For every breath feels so painful
Inside these trembling captive walls
Holding a heart that beats in stillness
I scarce can move after the fall
