Contradiction

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.
