Deliverance

Into a deep, dark hole,

I am plunged.

Into the darkness,

I dive…

Like a rock sinking

Into a sea of my own blood.

Then a pale hand reaches out

Guiding me.

Holding me.

Delivering me.

Loving me.

A one-winged angel…

I have hope.

My scarred angel…

I have hope.

My beautiful angel…

I have hope.

Your fallen feathers I gather,

Putting them back

With my own blood.

Your eyes are beautiful.

But sad.

Your wings are blood-stained.

But fixed.

You are perfect.

But I am not.

Take me on your flight,

My beautiful angel…

I can see the light.

We can see the light…

We have hope…
