The empowerment of tragedy

As despair has given me wings –
Thus I did soar unto heights beyond darkening
where an angel fair did hear me sing
as my laments of loneliness were harkening.
There she embraced me with her empathy tendered
yet entangled fell into blackened sun
where both hearts were broken and splintered
better was it two than the spirit of
- One.

beautiful poems, pictures are mostly beautiful but some are really too explicit, if you want a wide footfall may be you can rethink about them.
its a personal suggestion of course.
your poems are absolutely fantastic, there is no doubt about that.
