I love you.
I do not know if you feel the same.
I want to be your guardian angel.
But no matter how hard I try.
I'm not.
I can't.
I never can be.

Dusk enters into day,

Extinguishing all light.

And there your body lays,

Quiet and unmoving.

.

Your beautiful eyes brighter than any moon,

Your smile warmer than any sun.

I dream of you every night,

In an everlasting untouched utopia.

.

This despondent hope of mine,

Fails every time you walk past without a word.

And I'm left with only the smell of your hair,

And the sad eyes watching you fade in the distance.

.

My love for you could never be taken away,

No food or drink could ever replenish the feelings that I have for you.

This love is like a malady,

And there is no cure.

.

Your benevolent personality takes me away,

And I spread my wings to fly.

But I have no wings,

And so I stay.

.

I inhale you like my oxygen,

And when I see you there is nobody else.

And when I exhale,

You are gone.

.

I wish to protect you,

To take you away from evil's barrier.

I wish for you to come away with me,

And leave behind everything for something new.

.

If only I had the wings of an angel,

I could take you up on my wings and fly off.

And if you would come with me,

We would soar forever in the heavens.

.

But I am no angel,

These wings are not made of beautiful feathers.

But of stone and rock,

That hold me away from you and your open heart.

.

If I could be your guardian angel,

I would watch over you endlessly.

If I were an angel,

I would keep your love always.

.

But I am no angel,

This heart of mine is not made of stone and rock.

But out of stitches and dried blood,

From losing you when I could have held onto you.

.

I am no guardian angel.

I am no angel.

I have no heart of gold.

But I still love you.
