Angel Wings

Fear not the departed
in a world full of mortals
who light flames
to those who are different
once pink with giddy
now gray with despondence
sunflowers once bloomed
stalks now bow with an unnatural bend
taking on a shape of its own
the nemesis has arrived
don’t open the door
depart and cling to her wings
be carried away into the heavens
existence is no longer perilous.
