~~Where Do I Find My Light?~~

Trapped in darkness, this angel weeps
Wishing for the one she knows is asleep
The one inside her who is strong
Who can take away her pain, and make
This broken halo a circle again

"Where do I find my light?" She asks quietly
Knowing no one will answer her
Those who love her know this not
But she can't take this any more, her chances for survival
Have been shot

She looks in the heart of the Glowstone
The one she can't bear to darken
For he shines, and she must
Pay lip service to returning the love
He has sworn to her

She looks into the words of the Silent Man
Finding comfort in what he speaks
But darken him with her pain?
No, not when she's fighting
To brighten him again

Who does she have to speak to?
Her closest family within her mind
They are shattered and in mourning
And oh so weak
To their angel they can barely speak

Where does she run to?
She runs to the night
Praying for the company of those
Whose company she used to keep
Wishing for their timid words

The words that had moulded her
And made her so good and brave
Even while they shattered her
The girl, the one they loved
Who they sought to save

This poem is written in third person
So the broken angel can avoid
The truth she's trying to face:
That she is alone in this world
Glowstone her sun, and the Silent Man her comfort.
