Treasure Island

Stevie Taite

(30th January 1973 / Kent, England)

Angels fall


Angels fall

Angels fall
Sometimes it is because they are tripped
Tricked
Unguided
Neglected
No one really to show them the way
Easily received but selfishly not wanted
An accident
An inconvenience
Left to their own devises and what they know
They land on dirty grown, grubby nails and knees
and they scramble around in ignorant bliss 

Angels fall
Sometimes it is because they were pushed 
Rejected
Frustrated
Tempted
S omeone forgets to polish the treasure
Taken for granted that the ring was binding
A habit 
A convenience 
Left to their longing and desires
and what they deserve
They fall on soft feathers,
that leave imprints of guilty relief,
and they languish a while.

Angels fall
Sometimes it is out of the blue for no good reason at all
Confused
Possessed
Obsessed 
No one trips them, no one pushes them
A grip so tight round the heart
Teetering
Peering
They land in  the ocean that is their heart
and it  must be deep enough for all this love
as nothing else makes any sense.

Angels fall
Few are the angels that keep their wings
Enlightened?
Accepting?
Scared?
Please don't look down on us in that way
This flight for you was smooth
Lucky?
Righteous?
We all chose whether we live
cushioned by a cloud or on the ground!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
