Lullaby

Please don't cry,

My broken-winged angel.

Do not be afraid.

Not of me.

Though your innocence dies,

My silently screaming angel,

It isn't your fault –

Not in the least.

Yet here you lie,

My broken, shattered angel –

Trapped inside your

Cage of broken glass.

Unable to fly,

My vengeance-seeking angel,

You flutter your wings

So lost and so helpless…

And so you sigh,

My hurt and hating angel –

Frightened and angry,

And so very alone.

But you must try,

My dear and depraved angel.

I will help you,

You will be free to

Soar in the sky,

My not-quite-guilty-angel –

Soon, very soon

You will fly again.
