Treasure Island

Angel, Why?


Beautiful Angel
So fair and innocent
Why do you cry?

I cry over him
The man who had my heart
But threw it away and left

Sad Angel
So tender and fragile
Why does your clenched fist lay across your heart?

My fist lays there
Keeping the pain inside at bay
Instead of pouring out

Weak Angel
So broken and cold
Why do you double over?

I am balled up
To hold myself together
When I just want to scream and explode

Broken Angel
So torn and hurt
Why are you in pain?

It is not pain you see
It is the ache of a broken heart
In the core of my being, spreading throughout my body

Fallen Angel
So burnt and apart
Why aren't you whole and in heaven?

I am not whole
For my heart is gone
With the one I love

I am not in heaven
For I have left for him
And do not wish to leave without my soul mate

Heartbroken Angel
So alone and shattered
How will you live on earth alone?

I will be a ghostly shadow
Stuck forever here
Until my heart is taken back to heaven
Finally rejoined with my other half in him.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
