Daily Prompt: Seraph

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/daily-prompt-dickinson/

Seraphic Flames
Undo these
Sodden chains

Let there
Never be such an
Aching Loom
That taints
Each escaping
Smile

Seraphic Flames
Look down
And cave in
These Iron
Vaults.

Rid this
Lifetime
Of these
Painful
Faults

Let these
Morbid
Hours be
Contained

Seraphic Flames
When will this
Heady Darkness
Be slain.
When will it cease
To be a monument
Of everything
And all that
It has been.

Seraphic Flames
Don’t let these
Nasty
Patterns win.
Let these iron masts
Fall.
Don’t let the
Tragedy
Consume it all.

Seraphic Flames
Deliver me.
There is but a hint
Remaining
Of all that I
Could ever be.

Seraphic Flames
Just one blow
Or two
Don’t let these fading
Colours
Turn into
Pale hue.

Seraphic Flames
If there were ever
A flaky possibility so true.
Deliver me.
Deliver me.
Deliver me.

And then escape…
