Untrusting of sunshine is the shadow that falls over my heart
Yet knowing it only breathes from the glimmer of heavens
I'm an angel with no wings but horns and a tail
Born into them but not one of them, barely breathing at all
I stare down on the world from my terrace
Reaching like the vines running to the rooftop
I know,
I know
-This is not where I belong
And if I could find my way onto an autumn wind
And let it blow me away from the violent rays of sun
I would,
I could,
I would give up my shadow for that

Take me back.

Take me home.
