The Rebel Angel

This poem is greatly inspired by my all-time favorite book called "Angelfall", a novel written by Susan Ee. It is a post-apocalyptic novel that talks about the war between angels and men, and contrastingly, the love between them. It also introduces a politics of angels.

The novel has stirred my entire emotions. Susan Ee has gotten me head over heels with her novel.

Here's a fan-made poem for Angelfall.

The Fallen Angel

The Fallen Angel

The Rebel Angel

The angel set foot on the solemn ground

to meet his love with great profound

He closed his wings and hid his sword

rushed towards his love while he can afford

There his love was waiting in the dark

amidst the midnight's cold and stark

He went to caress his daughter of man

the woman who conceives their unborn son

Their love so genuine yet gravely forbidden,

the words forbid and the laws unwritten

Should they never be one with daughters of men

Else they'll be condemned and be forsaken

The angel commit his fate to his love

without giving a care to the words from above

He remained faithful to his lovely wife

He valued her greatly even more than his wings, more than his sword, more than the word, more than his life

And when all the rebels cast down from heaven

leaving their wives with the Nephilim amongst them

They were thrown disgraced to the land of the fallen

Where their wings' feathers shall fall out,

their youth shall wilt, and

their beauty shall leave their heavenly bodies

Condemned disgraced to the land of the fallen,

unheavenly cruel, unearthly forsaken

Where they will suffer and wait until the judgment.
