Feathers scattered across crimson cobble
Love’s wings shattered this petrified heart
I am who I am, Infallible
My soul desires but unholy angel hands tear apart
Sirens sing; their evil-love songs impart
Do I desire silver and gold and platinum, or a Pearl?
Shall I bear brassart
And fend off every touch as a merl?
Hope enter; Sunrise unfurl
