An Angel's Failure

-

The color fades away so quickly

I stand imprisoned so tightly

Rope bound around me, my wings too

I'm stuck here standing balanced

-

A small wind could push me off

I would fall to my death quickly

I would know that it's my fault

I wouldn't be able to fight back

-

Is it my sorrowful fate to die?

I may only wait for an advance

Invigorated suffering floats by

The redeemer cannot be redeemed

-

So the failed rescue is doomed

Rescuers aren't allowed humanity

We aren't permitted compassion

It's dark and the only color is

-

I said the only color is blood

Let me gouge my eyes out now

Let me vomit out the loneliness

But I put myself here you know?

-

So the rescuer needs some rescuing

Everyone needs a redeemer, even me

I will stand on this tall pedestal

Consuming sorrow will hope for wind
