I wish I was an angel
not to shake
the dust out of
these bones
or find my way 
to pure again

but for the rules
the angels 
don't abide
for the quality 
of gentle
without the need
to hide
from the ones 
they dream
to cradle
with the mystery
of light 

and I would damn
the distance
and martyr
steps of miles
just to bring 
the healing
to be loved like this
can bring

hold you as a ghost
that can take nothing
in return
but sends the demons
from the night 
and wraps you in
in its courage
that can't be touched
by time
