Hush Little Angel

The heavens picked you up from Earth
As you were touched by the fingers of death
A pasty pallor whitewashed your skin
Eyes so distant with those last heartbeats
We came down and gave you a gift
The gift of an eternal life of purity

Hush little angel, don't you cry
One day you'll be able to fly
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection in every feature
There would be no, more perfect creature
An escape from human flaws
And the hate that constantly gnaws

We gave you wings so flawless
The best we've ever given
Memory of your earthly existence was erased
Emotions were nonexistent as well
You remembered nothing of your life as a human
Your new self doesn't need to be tainted by those sins
We had to raise you as if you were a baby

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Now you are able to fly
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection is in every feature
There is a no, more perfect creature
You have become our greatest creation
After so much failed experimentation

Time progressed and your small wings grew
Feathers began to fill out
Creating lush, sweeping clouds
Mentally and physically you were mature
Ready to get your assignment
To serve the one who chose to save you
You were to observe and learn about the human race
And what it is that turns them from the heavens

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Now you are able to fly
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection is in every feature
There is a no, more perfect creature
You have become our greatest creation
After so much failed experimentation

So there you sat by a crystalline pool
Watching various happenings on Earth
Taking in all the good and the bad
Analyzing and trying to determine
Why so many people are turning from the heavens

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Now you are able to fly
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection is in every feature
There is a no, more perfect creature
You have become our greatest creation
After so much failed experimentation 

But what was this?
An incessant itching at the back of your mind?
Why this human?
What was so familiar about this human?
You felt like you knew her but you couldn't remember
No matter how much you tried to forget her she kept coming back
Flooding your mind
Soon, you began watching only her
Ignoring the rest of the world
Now, something tugged at your heart
Every time she was on your mind

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Now you are able to fly 
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection is in every feature
There is a no, more perfect creature
You have become our greatest creation
After so much failed experimentation

The pool you were always looking at became inky black
You couldn't see her anymore
You were searching frantically to find her but she wasn't there
Nothing but the inky darkness enveloped the pool
We tore you away from it
Dragged you to our council 

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Now you are able to fly
To soar through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
Perfection is in every feature
There is a no, more perfect creature
You have become our greatest creation
After so much failed experimentation

We discussed the task you were supposed to perform
What you did wrong
How you watched this woman for years
You erred from your duty to watch a mere human
You described how she made you feel
Feel?!
We thought that we took away your feelings
All your earthly ties
But it seems that your retained a fraction of your human self

Hush little angel, stop your crying
You had your chance at flying
At soaring through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
And you fell to a humanly vice
Oh, how women can entice 
Even the purest of angels
Fall to their pretty looks and fragrant smells 

You had broken a cardinal rule
By falling in love with a human
We had no choice but to strip you of your wings
The wings we were so proud of
The best pair we had made
And we destroyed them because of your wrong doing
Tearing out those wings
Watching the bloodied feathers drift to Earth
Hearing your screams
All to uphold the law

Hush little angel, stop your crying
You had your chance at flying
At soaring through the skies up above
With feathers as white as a dove
And you fell to a humanly vice
Oh, how women can entice
Even the purest of angels
Fall to their pretty looks and fragrant smells

After you were stripped of everything that represented the heavens
We discarded you to Earth
To be with the humans you watched for so many years
We thought you were perfection
But it turned out that you were just another failed attempt

Hush little angel, don't you cry
Do you remember when you could fly?
When you soared through the skies up above?
With feathers as white as a dove?
Yes, you had quite a fall
But you learned something after all
Even the greatest angels have their flaws
And will eventually break their own laws 

 

The End
