will you be my angel

Be My Angel

as i curl into
the chrysalis
harboring all
my pains, insecurities,
doubts and worries
that come at
the purple darkness
of my night, when
the world around me
seems to stand still,
i think of you.

and, i wonder
if you could learn
to love me for
just a while.
if you could hold
my hand when
the suffering
is too much to bear.
if i could give you
a part of my heart
before my body
surrenders and emits
its last breath.

do you think
you can be my hero
and my angel,
even for just the
last moments
of my life?
