Lucifer's Cage

I watched you in the cage, partly bloody
Circling the bars in a hellish rage.
Age was hard on your heart.
Two chosen others
Took his offer.
Who I desire is a man’s older brother
Lying in my arms. Holy water – saving
Humans. Large bottles around chipped tables.
Many times he prayed in the car, body crumbled,
Ignoring the growing lies.
Last year he left unwillingly over the angel proof cage
& your soulless, dark eyes
Hated the sight of a man, living.
I see a boy who kills saving lives.
