Angel’s wings

I went to heav­en expect­ing

God to let me in.

Des­cen­ded into the rab­bit hole

of the abyss, instead. Gripped

by the shad­ows of demon­ic

self – hatred. Not pretty enough.

Not talk­at­ive enough. Weird. Freak.

Ugly was my nick­name. I

kept fall­ing down into the

abyss. Alone in this room.

Loneli­ness and I have

been best friends for a

long time.  My battles were

fought in silence.

No one knew the sad­ness

in my eyes. They saw

my smile. I became a

Mona Lisa paint­ing.

I had my shield.

Became void and numb.

Became a zom­bie.

Lost in a world of books

and make beliefs.

Tenth feet under the grave

was sup­posed to be me.

I heard an angel whis­per

“Invin­cible, power­ful, strong, boss

ass queen”.

I grew an angel’s wings and flew out

of the abyss.
