Dark thoughts carried
on the wings of melancholia
try to worm their way
within dreamless sleep

They are beaten back
by the arrival of the unicorn
It gives her comfort
as it weaves its magic

Strong limbs remind her
of inner strength
Angel wings flutter
with promise of escape

A powerful horn
speaks of piercing the darkness
-reminding her that
she is strong and never was alone
