Winner: Poem of the Week: May 6, 2007

When Angels Flee
by Thief of Dreams

Amber swirls
Like some mysterious liquid jewel
Long since melted down
The last diamond of cold

One more kiss
Drawn out seduction
Feel the smooth touch
Against trembling lips

Let the fire push down
Make believe the moment
Is made of whiskey
Not heartache pulling
At the letter
Laying gently
On a felt covered card table

Must be raining now
In this living room of longing
Will the tears away
To wipe away is to acknowledge
The reality of regret

Witness a moment of weakness
The glass shattering
A thousand tiny sparkles of light
Against the backdrop of painted plaster
The drama masks changing fast
From smiles to sadness

Fists of anger rattle the room
Table jumps under pressure
A diamond ring falling from the folds
Of a letter left unread

A bottle half empty
Yet half full of amber acceptance
No need for a glass
This whiskey won’t last
