Roles Reversed

Written by: Emma Buckeridge

As I look to the darkened sky,
a fallen angel in disguise
held me down around the halo,
I fell and drowned into their eyes.

Deepest notions of sentiment,
unearth the thoughts I have sent.
A candle burning through the night.
Is my mind broken? While yours is bent?

I need to change this skin tonight.
I'll take yours, it fits just right.
Roles reverse, I float away.
While you stay grounded, so sleep tight.
