Hang your wings up
for me tonight
and tremble, frail
and pale as winter's skin
within my arms.
Be my stranger,
an undone deed
I can carry like a candle
or a verse
whose words are simple
and let me feel it flame
like a soft bandage on my wounds.

Be my damage,
an unhealed skirmish
so sore that sorrow wanders
like a buried child
and banish me to yesterday
and fill my cup
with all I've ruined.
Hang your wings up
for me tonight
and tumble, silent
and fragile as summer sin
within my arms
and be my savior -
one long last shudder
behind my eyes

where you never thought
to look.
For Victoria

This happened to be on the front page of my random favourites.  This is your finest work in my opinion. For what it is worth :D  Thought I would mention before you retire from da.

I like "Be my damage,
an unhealed skirmish
so sore that sorrow wanders
like a buried child"
