Earthbound Angel

Dedication: The prettiest girl i ever saw was found on a Philadelphia Subway. For twelve minutes I watched her. No words were spoken, no looks exchanged, but 25 years later, I can still remember her.

Earthbound Angel

You would never believe in your wildest dreams
what I found today.
I found and earthbound Angel in the darkness
of the city shadows.
Her eyes sparkled like so many stars
in the summer night.
She smiled and glowed at me
and the cruel harshness of the shadows of the world disappeared
into the light that she radiated.
I stared into her eyes, for but a moment
and my soul melted into nothingness.
That was when I knew
that I had found an Earthbound Angle
in the cold darkness of the city night.
