a cross

Rage by AnnaMariaDeMari at deviantART
don't look into my insomniac eyes-
seemingly so, 
(I sleep like a log)
that cross on my forehead-
a mark I acquired 
when I fell down from the stars
but what of it?
I look like a fallen angel
with my gelled hair,
and unblinking stare
that air of haughtiness
you could never fathom my indomitable spirit
(just a fact I state)

"when I walk on the earth again, 
I find bliss in my obscure state"

Wow, powerful write indeed. I'm not too sure I'd want to meet them on a dark night though, having fallen from Heaven.....LOL

You're coming a drift triple toes.
No one can look haughty with gelled hair:)

This is so cool! She does look like a fallen angel in this picture.

Falling down the stars - that's some fall, a cross on her forehead. She is indomitable. Watch out! Interesting write.

Quite a voice of authority and strength -- don't judge or underestimate. :)
