Fallen Angels

 

when i took your hand
and fell that dizzy,
far depth into hell,
i forgot, sometimes,
my own name, forgot
that you and i were
not really one, but
two, and one of us
was not an angel, but
a test to see how far
the other could fall.
it was i who woke up
broken and bruised on
the floor of hell and
i still can't, sometimes,
remember my name.
