Beguiling Contradiction

You sing your songs of
half mystery
half regret
Calling across distance
for my sympathy
and yet
my cause for confusion
and fear I cannot

You prowl your stage
part hunger
part fire
Beguiling contradiction
both wrath and
Leaving all your followers
still trapped in
the mire

Once face of an angel
just before
the fall
Now aging, revealing
root cause of
it all
But your own undoing
you will not
