As The Forest Burned

written by: Tina McFarlane


Blackened ash
of lost dryads
choked the air
remnants from
the raging demon whose
light erased the sky
with a fury
that hell itself had fled

as angels born
with wings of metal and valour
fought back
carrying a will that held
when all else failed

exhausted to their hearts’ core
finding strength
when they began to see
the fear in the demon’s eyes

and heaven’s tears
joined in drowning
his frenzied temper

until in the end
they stood victorious
the demon defeated
and the sky once again
opened to the stars
