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.

I always wonder why I never read your poetry so often. It's really beautiful and has a sense of..serenity. Good Job.

I saw and felt your Broken Angel. I particularly loved the line "jaded kisses and broken promises had left me empty." So true. Beautiful work! Love it!

Always interesting ain't it? How many poems there are about angels. Or how many times they're mentioned in a writing...I mean I do it. More than I would a vampire or werewolf. But I'm always impressed with your writing. It's really amazing! And I think, I know it defiantly should be published! Nice job!

This is such a gritty, honest, caring write that confesses the reality of love in the depths of despair and anguish. Nothing is color coded, yet you offer a true hope in these last lines.. a new day will come..

I think the ragged edges of those in plight is a unique slant on the idea of the presented Angel, the broken and down trodden woman. To use superlatives that are in the measure of those byways of human tragedy. Asking the broken Angel for the understanding and easing the burdens of the turning into and, maybe not away. Come, share with me. Please my broken Angel walk with me and maybe. Better days.


Whether intended or not its how I felt, this in that between. Of a hard ball look at the dealing those of them found in their, whatever they might be and to have to given them short sharp characters. [I don't mean much to no-one] a lot said in this simple phrasing. To the level of that pathos. Very dramatic.

A great new work Coyote. Romon in Review Write On / Right On!

I adore the end to this, with the sun day rising :) Beautifully voiced sweety!
I think this poem works wonderfully, a potent message within, a great way of letting the reader know that others feel turmoil too at certain points in their life and it also moves!
Brilliant work love!
