We’re one-winged angels
Clinging together above the stars

The velvet of the sky
And twinkles of far off planets

Know no warmth
Like our embrace

And if the sun’s blood
Melts these Icarus wings,

Pearl tears like rain
Will weep from the sky

Hiding our fragile skin
And filling the gaps between

And we’ll plummet to earth
One being of hot flesh and cool wax

The author's comments:
there are several references to philosophy, obviously mythology, and literature. so it's kindof a combination of a lot of my taste in literatary art.
