Some Kind of Angel

There's no need to pretend...
I've never been a saint.
I'm open to what's tainted,
aching to start a war.
You can't understand

how I'm used to being wrong,
hands in a pocket full of red paint.
Could I be strong

enough to make you love what you didn't see
the first time?
I'm betting I'm weak,
in my dreams the bottle speaks

to me like a song.
I'm running and running,
thrilled by the chase and too busy 
to make things right...
The nights are long

enough to make me stop believing 
there're reasons to fight,
cause hearts to ache.
They burn, all those meanings.

I won't love you where you stand,
my restless pride be a sin.
But I'd roam forever 
so I can look for you again.

I'm no good after the rain. 
Some things never leave, some stains 
are forever. I won't give you anything 
but a moment of gladness
that to you I'm an angel that flew far
enough to never fade.

    Taking the heart to the crossroads of sanity & insanity. This was a very powerful piece. Excellent job! Hell of an ending!
