LOVE BLIND by T. Crosby (50 Words)
Because I am an angel, you said you believed in them, and so I believed in you.
Yet here at the door of death, who should come for you but Him?
The light of your love for me outshone the darkness in your soul.
And for that, we are doomed.

Editor’s Note: This story grows on me a little more each time I read it, as I start to tease out more meaning from each sentence. At first it was an enigma, and now I find it appealingly haunting. I recommend coming back for a repeated read later, so you have time to explore and digest it.
