The Angels don't cry for me.

The Angels don't cry for me.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

A very old poem. I learn you can't be forgiven. Just to live with the foolishness.

"



The Angels don' cry for me.



The kind Angels don't cry or pray for a man with no conscious.

They can give only soft caresses to calm uncontrolled anger and energy.


I sat by the Monterey Bay wishing to be somewhere else.

I was haunted by mistakes.

My greed for flesh and money had  left me alone and desperate.


The sun fell into sea. I watched the first star appear.

I wished upon the first star.

For a dark eyed girl to come back to me.


Then I remembered I was the foolish man  who left her.

Left her with tears in her beautiful brown eyes.


Her haunting words are a part of me now." Please stay." If I left her.

No-one would ever love me again."


 I sat drowning in self pity and anger.

Wished a fool's dream.

To go back in time and hold on.


Angels don't forgive the cold and heartless men.

Men who drain young flesh and leave them for dead.


I found her once.

My brown eyed girl came to me.

She put her arms around me.

Whispered "I forgive you. Please take care of yourself."


She walked away with a true love hand in hand.

I saw she found joy in a man who knew he held a real diamond.


I drank my tequila alone and told the world to back off by the Seaside ocean.

I fell into the sea.

Trying to feel some kind of emotion.


I finally cried  tears for breaking a sweet woman heart.

I sat and waited for the sun to rise from the east.

Not knowing if a man could be forgiven for deeds done without heart or conscious?


I pray to the Gods of the sea, the sky and the earth for forgiveness.

I tossed the tequila down. I walked the cold and lonely beach.


The kind Angels are crying for me now.

They are praying for a man who held greed and hate as his love.


I sat by the sea wet,cold and understanding.


Love is the most beautiful and sweetest gift.


 When a sweet woman open up her heart and soul to you.


Hold on to her tightly.

Give long and sweet kisses.


Don't let go.

Rule 17: Omit needless words (from the Elements of Style by Strunk and White). I point this out because I think this would be a stronger poem if you remove the underbrush that serves no purpose. Get rid of the words that don't move the images, feelings, and thoughts forward. If you have trouble finding them, read the poem aloud. You'll hear the places it stumbles.

Your writing was always good....always filled with honest emotion. It has gotten significantly better. Indeed, we must hold onto the ones we love when we find them. John, this is good. Lydi**

You are right. We must read a lot to improve our writing. I received help from many kind Writer's ca.. read more
yes, your writing has improved greatly....but wow, there was always that heart you had in your words, and it shines more brightly than ever, now.

I really like this....like Roy Hamilton sang in a 50's song, "hold me tight and don't let go"--

when it's gone we realize what we had...so we must think twice.

Thank you Michael again. I appreciate the many comments.
Emotional, but for reading aloud, it may not sound good. But on the screen, it's really great...

Splendid poem. Thank you for opening your emotions and thought to us.
A couple little things:
Your parenthesis are a little jumbled in the fifth stanza.
In the last lines open>opens
