Gabriel's Curse - Poem by Kathryn O'Connor

Forgive me Gabriel for I am drawn to sin.
The desolation left by my pain within.
I find it far too hard to contain my pride.
So it is left showing on the outside.
Your idiocy is such that it has no chance but to show.
After all that you still do not know.
This is your fault, this world, my life.
Kill me now and save your strife.
For surely I am not worth of life.
Show the world just who you are.
Cut me up and leave a scar.
Beseech me that which is needed in life.
Tell me you love me for I am your wife.
Thou shalt fall for those who rise.
See the pain in their dying eyes.
Witness the tears as the innocent cries.
For this is what has become of a world of lies.
