|The Unsung Requiem
Author: Farewell-My-Shadow PM
I woke up at 2:00 in the morning with this idea. I quickly typed it out on my phone's notepad...at 2:00 in the morning. I may have been slightly delirious.Rated: Fiction K - English - Words: 187 - Published: 01-04-12 - Status: Complete - id: 2985416

Imprisoned in a cage of Ignorance,
Held hostage by Innocence,
Swinging over a sea of Evil.
Daring once and for all
To break free,
I kicked down the door of my cell
Toward the sea.
But I landed on a cloud
And was stranded
An angel visited me,
Her wing tips singed black.
She had swum in the sea of Evil
But still her heart
Every day she would visit me
And talk with me,
But she could never stay for very long.
Oh, how I longed to be with her,
To grow wings of my own
And leave my floating island of despair.
How I wished I could fly by her side
And go where the wind
Might take us.
But it was not meant to be.
Innocence still held it's sway over me.
As long as I knew not the waters
Of Evil below, that fair angel could
Never be mine.
She would not let me taint myself
Even though I would give
My soul for her.
And so we are bound.
