Paradise Lost

When you fell my little one you knew
What you had lost
A moment too late is still too late
And wings won’t raise you up
Above your choices
You glide safe down
To where you may yet land
Survey your home

I could have told you little one the fall
Is glorious at first
And then the dark is nothing but the dark
Your spirit’s tiny spark
Could never wage its war
Against the tide of time
Not yours nor mine

I released you little one with such regret
But I gave you choice
I’d take it back and yet
All that we will give is all that we will get
Our wings are wonderful they fly
Against our ravaged sky
And would that we forget
By and by

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
