and in a while

you’ll say I know

what you went through

and i’ll

smile and say there is nothing

i can do

and i will weep

for the forgotten of angels,

as you will sleep

and propose

all of my angles,

i have been gone

and you have been wrong

for a while.

lost and forgotten

i’ll sleep your beguiles.
