41 (who?)
1 month before the fall
A crimson rose in full bloom for the last time,
The blood-stained chair awaits
Hell is scattered with wilted petals.
Cold-hearted, guiltiness is unknown to me,
Slitting her silk throat
Licking my steel, watching her bleed
I craved such a delightful moment.
She was genuinely gorgeous, wore desire on her skin... 
Deadly beautiful. 

1 day before the fall
"Cell of ice ; as frozen as the heart I once had." 
Crows and graves under the window
Looking down on him with their cold eyes... 
"Gruesome symbols. Macabre shivers 
A death trap from where I can't escape."
Ominous marks of his past roommates... 
"The smiling walls, constantly laughing, always staring."
The abyss of his fear consumes him
"...My own heartbeats? Is that what fear tastes like?"
A slow process of self-destruction
Sink even deeper into it, into invariable terror
"The edge of sanity. I think about her now?"
Lucky peaceful beauty. 

Soul Harvest day

Dreadful relief. Gates of Hell are finally open
I'll come back home, a land of unforgivable roamers
I breathe this mist one last time
Even the air weighs heavily on me.
While walking into death row
Ghosts from oblivion shut my sight
Screams of the fallen swamp my head.
At the edge of the darkest hallway
She is waiting for me
The Angel I slew.

Delightfully macabre. It is a cold and rainy night outside
right now as I read this. I like that. And I think this poem
likes that too. I think it likes the raw and rainy night. Even
my tea has gone cold and I am literally wrapping a blanket
tightly around myself as I read the last verse.  That last
verse is such a slow mourneful walk to a shiver down my
spine as I get to the last two lines.

I love how the Angel brackets his story.  It gives a sense
of symmetry.  I think if you look at it a certain way, it
makes this as much her story as his.

Thank you!

Yeah the rainy mood is a perfect match for this text indeed. Just in case you need it again:
Definitely, the Angel is probably the most important part of the story. 
Anyway thank you for the feedback. :heart:
I do like when the mood or the environment match the poem.  Last
night was perfect for that.  And I love, love, love the rainymood link. 
Thank you.  Heart 

May I please ask a favor?   Are there any poets, or poetry collections
that you are particularly fond of and that you could recommend?  It has
been since forever that I really read any poetry and I'm looking for a little
help figuring out which way is up.  I looked at your favorites but there is
so much there it's a bit overwhelming. 
Thank you so much.

Well I strongly recommand you to read Baudelaire's works, he's my main inspiration.

You can think the unthinkable…
and pen down the sensations unimaginable..
and arrest the unknown unescapable...
