One of my favorite poems I've ever written.

Fold your wings up, Angel,

You're drowning in this alcohol

Fighting to see yourself in a mirror

Smeared with all your doubts

Youv'e fallen from your perfect sky

And you're headed towards the sea

Falling from your golden heights

And now you'll be the death of me

I fight to keep you floating

As you fight to go below

We don't know which way is up.

Look toward northern lights

See your face in colored miracles

So put your wings away

You're not flying anywhere now

They're soaked with bad intentions

And your'e choking on dried up dreams
