The Catch Of Wings

When it came to romance, no one could top us.
   We met and it was instant chemistry.
We knew the arms of love would never drop us,
   So when we fell, we fell gloriously.
We shared the heights and never shunned the deep.
   We defined “precious” by each other’s worth.
We had a love that made the angels weep
   To see true heaven in two souls on earth.
And then it went to hell, in flames that seared
   A hundred times more than the fires of love,
When all we hoped was killed by all we feared
   And we became the haunted victims of
      A love that ruled the heavens like a hawk
      And crashed to earth the day we tried to walk.
