You are too young for it all
Too young for this much pain
Too young for this much heartbreak
Too young to be chasing halos

The last time we spoke, you hugged me tight
And I felt it then, that hope still in you
That possibility, the light that hadn't gone out
You hugged me tight and I knew
There is still more for you to do

And so I'm begging you to open up your eyes,
Open them and keep them wide

You aren't tired so there's no need for you to sleep
It isn't time to throw in your towel
It isn't time for you to go
It isn't time for you to be chasing halos

When you were smaller I held you in my arms
So sweet, so small, so innocent
You would always smile like you looked up to me
And I knew I had to be good so that you would too
There is still time for you to be anything you dream

So I'm begging you, don't trade your youth for wings
I wrote this for my 13 year old cousin who's currently in a coma

Home heaven halo
a squirrel peeks through the hole
the Acorn stairway

Flying off drugs in my system
I know they be hating **** the system
I know im not right in my head
but when did u notice that’
I take drugs for smiles
When my appearance cracks
They say they hate me ****
What the ***** with that
I only hurt myself
See the halo snap
I only love myself
Had some heart attacks
I love everyone
But who loves me

Awoken by the sound of the softest strings
Shrouded in my endless nightmare.
You held me close and helped me close
My mind to all that’s not fair.
You took my hand and kissed my face
And showed me the way back
To a place I’d long forgotten;
Away from all that’s rotten.

Can I tell you something, dearest damsel?
Clearly and sincerely.
I’ve never felt so cared for.
I’ve never felt so loved.
I’d never had the best time
On the worst day of my life.
Until you showed me stripes and stars all day.
Secret artwork; know you’re the real work of art.
Now I’ll never forget how you took my hand
And showed me yours is the warmest heart.
Holding on so tightly.
A day out just for two.
Look at her, so spritely.
Only she can see you.

Long ago,
when earth was clean and silver bright
an angel fell, compelled by vast eternal might
beyond all time
through endless night so brightly starred
his wings aflame his halo charred
remembering beauty through his tears
to see him through in later years

If you see me closely,
I am the one with the halo.
If you hear me keenly,
I say a lot more than just “Hello.”
If you hold me intimately,
You can feel my wings too, and,
I shall make unimaginable love.

I am not paradise.
I am a broken angel.

A featherless pair of wings
and a burnt out halo

this is what you'll get
with me.

I am not perfect but I am good and I promise I am worth it..
