Artwork - "Traveling Soul" by Nico Sproule

looking closely

into the murky water


i see a soul—

a spirit from


the forgotten realm

the grand above


the great divide

that plagues my days


the creature shakes

and sputters


a fallen angel

he looks into my eyes


breathing air;

until finally


his curtains close

his story fades


if i could be

one of the angels


if i could live

in the grand above


if i could know

everything they teach


if i could see

everything from beyond—


always “if”

but never when

my whole life

i’ve been told


they would not want

someone like me


that i would not

be welcome


in the land of

the angels


in the house of

the lord


i hear about him

everywhere i go


they tell me to follow

yet offer no lead


do they expect me

to cave into


voluntary blindness,

selective deafness?


that angel who fell

is it because


he saw the truth—

he woke up?


i see him lying

there in the water


and, as if i had

a reason to mourn

i observe in silence

glumly admire as


one of my own,

a denied soul,


cast away

by a false idol


if one as beautiful

as him


was thrown out

and discarded


what hope does

one like me have?


they call themselves

good, kind believers


yet do not believe

we are worth saving


heaven does not

deserve you


your radiant light

your passionate love


your soul is

too good for them


i will always be

your heaven


you will always be

my angel
