The Abyss

The abyss is so crowded
No more can the spirit fall
In the light of the moon
The shadow of the vulture
Man has become
What he ought to destroy
Angels stoop and cry despair
Wings are broken not to restore
The flight to glory a distant dream
Eyes that saw are lying asleep

Nice. Really nice.
I didn't quite get the allusion to the vulture though.
