the angel's sword

am i
a real princess
with an army
whose size
is unknown
revealed
only
by the day of danger
at one time
i was certain that
i was alone
my enemy taunting
he had me down on the floor
until my angel with tattered jeans
appeared
my enemy
frightened
the angel’s weapon
a well used collector’s guitar
a cool one at that
his eyes fell upon me
as if to hug me
he grabbed my enemy
face to face
it was some fight
he hit a note to soothe me
he sang
at the sound of his beautiful voice
my enemy fled
running like a rat
unable to stand
his voice like light
then this muscular angel
sang me
a lullaby
kissing me
with his voice
good night princess
let me play you one more song
