"The Better Angel"
Oh how I despise you so
of your wretched curls
Spun of fine gold
Under damp sheets and course bones
that once took place of white wings
I wrestle the ****** within my dreams
Then my hands begin to shake
On the doorknob there hangs a burning ring
my heart finally flutters in a familiar ache
I know it is going to burn me terribly so
But I am far pre-occupied to care
To possess what was supposed to be mine long ago
I waft in it's warmth and beams
the pressure burning...burning my fingers
Maybe God could finally recognize me?
It's light dies out
No matter how high I place it on the tip of my head
It falls to the floor, miserably with a loud sound.
