You’re Not Satan Anymore

I loved a man as callous as can be, he pushed me away with every touch and there was no room for us to be. I was so close to walking away when I took a second look. I saw his horns were falling, and as I touched them, I felt my halo slip. His horns were just a headband, he was pretending to be something he wasn’t to keep love at bay. I took it off his head and my halo did the same, because I was just pretending to be something I wasn’t in a different way. We’re just two people afraid of love. But in the unforgiving light of reality I am no longer afraid, and a new and more golden light shines through both our chests and I’ve never seen anything more beautiful in my life.
