Only named in my mind
little soul, little sister
I want you to be
but you cannot
Purged in fear
are you an angel now?
Please forgive… I have no say
Giving life, taking life: precarious
Will you smile for me
as I take your pain?
Hell awaits for the rest of us
My fault, your life
My shame, your death
