wingless

I'm just an angel
Trying to flap useless stumps
Where wings were once welded
Before the child smiled and
With effortless grace
Whisked his hand towards my back
And stripped me of flight

He sleeps in the manger
While I wander
Wingless
A mirage
That flicker by the fire that you see and soon forget
I'm just a fallen angel
Trying to flap useless stumps
Try to fight my way up
Before I'm singed
By these flames

You can't catch me
And He won't
For I'm just a lost spirit
Who can't find her way back
To the light.
