Wounded  Angel

Wounded Angel

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

  Wounded Angel


 My sad  friend.
Please smile for me.
Stay with me by the sea all night.


Your world has fell apart.
You don't know right from wrong.
Desperate acts had left you feeling
dirty and insulated from everyone.


Please take my hand.
Walk with a man who swims in s**t most
of his life.


Ain't no real Angels on this Earth.
Only us struggling to make amends.


We all must do things we are ashamed of.
World isn't clean anymore.
Not enough helping hands.


Ain't no pity for the people in plight today.
I know we get fatigue and humiliated to
believing we are worthless and destitute.


Broken Angel.
Please take my hand.
Walk with a contaminated man.
Jaded kisses and broken promises had
left me empty.
The not so sweet taste of life has turn me bitter.


The sad woman whisper.
"I'm a dumping ground for men
who want to use and abuse.
I don't mean much to no-one."


I  touch her face.
I tell her.
"We must ascend from the malingering hell.
Leave the one's who want you to beg for mercy."


"Ain't no easy road.
Sometime we must get up.
Tell the world to back away."


"Find a better path to be on.
Kinder  and better people."


Please my broken Angel walk with me.
Take my hand.
The new day is rising from the East.

Coyote Poetry,
"Wounded Angel" speaks in the meaning of it's title. "Smile for me. Stay with me by the the sea all night" You give hope the first word. Oh, I like that.
Reality is complex in people many times and by the time many have left youth things can be quite broken; "Desperate acts has left you feeling dirty and insulated from everyone."
Then identifying with the lowness but also heights of understanding we can find in the eyes of others. "Broken Angel, please take my hand, walk with a contaminated man." So very beautiful in honesty, vulnerability; A place of healing in realistic thinking.
Then moving forward to more wholeness-healing; " I touch her face. I tell her. "We must ascend from the malingering hell. Leave the ones who want you to beg for mercy."
I found a mountain of meaning within this poem besides the lines i focused on.
Thanks for writing.
Bless you.
Kathy.

There are many broken angels in this world, and as long as we are alive a new sun will rise in the morning giving us another chance. These are words of hope.

the only thing that i found disaproveing of was some of the subject matter. some of the stanzas sound a little whiny and dont really fit with the rest of the poems feel. sometimes its really hard to get those feeling to come out right, but i always think you can do way better then whining. everything else about it i do like however, it deffintly is interesting and some what your own.

Written with such bleak beauty. There is a compassionate pity in these stanza's for others. Hidden under the veil of despondency, but it is there. And I loved every occasion it peeked its head out from under those covers and whispered sympathy.

I really love your writes, and this one is no different! Amazing.
I particularly liked:
"Ain't no easy road.
Sometime we must get up.
Tell the world to back away."

Because it's so true and everyone can relate to this. Thanks again for another brilliant poem,
