The Angel In Her Shadows

Your eyes only lingered on her,
Nobody else.
Spare me your looks,
Just one will do,
I am not greedy,
Just one will do.

I cared for you,
Pouring in my fullest heart,
Retrieving the shreds
Bit by bit,
Clearing the mess,
Piece by piece.

Never knowing when,
I would fill your eyes.
Uncertainity-
Never leaving my soul.

My wings spreaded out, -
I can't leave you.
My feathers dropped, -
But I don't care.

The angel within me,
My greatest sacrifice,
I let it emerged,
Just to win your heart,
Even if it's just a small percentage.

Still I live in her shadows,
You will never let me out,
Because to you,
She is the one that shines,
She is the one that will capture your distracted mind.

I live in her shadows,
But you don't seem to notice,
Your thoughts all given to her,
Leaving none for me.

Just a smile directed to me will ease the pain,
But you are unwilling to part with it,
Wanting to save every single one for her.

The angel within me,
Unleashed willingly,
For your sake,
For your love,
For the chance to be your love.

My love forsaken,
My love left there,
Overlook by you,
Underestimated by the world.

Shrouded by pain,
Overwhelmed by hurt,
Nonetheless,
I persisted.
Stubbornly thinking that one faithful day,
You will be mine.

But till then,
Dark-
Surrounds me,
Light-
Seems like eternity.
