A Reply to Angels & Faeries by Wuji
You speak of angels; I’ll speak of demons,
The kind that haunt a tortured mind.
You talk of faeries; I’ll talk of goblins
Who feed on kindness unconfined.
You write of aliens; I’ll write of terrestrials
Who walk this earth in sullen state.
You hint at mystery and whisper of history,
As I brood o’er my wretched fate.
You paint the breathtaking world that you see
With tears that drip from the divine;
I squint at light filtering down to my world –
The darkness that I claim is mine.
