Angel came down
from heaven to earth.
It was part of her
once in a lifetime tour
of the earth’s solar system.
She chose to visit the earth first
as word was that it was the most beautiful,
so beautiful that it had been the model
for the paradise that was heaven.
She had never really believed it
some things just weren’t believable,
like heaven, few people believed in it
believed in paradise
whether earthly or heavenly.
Angel realised that she didn’t believe in it either.
She believed in herself though,
believed in the angels.
She met quite a few
on her travels,
she told me so.
I told her how pleased I was to meet her,
how glad I was that I’d believed in her,
how sorry I was that she had to leave
before she found paradise.
But that’s life.
I waved her goodbye
as she mounted her unicorn
and rode away, still searching.
