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.

The new day is rising...

Truly heart-warming poem. If only every desperate soul could hear such honestly meant words and have someone reaching out a hand to help them up.
Wonder-full write.

couple of small gramatical issues but they don't detract. yes, have seen this person before, sometimes they don't want help. those are the painful ones to watch.

We've all met our share of wounded Angels, and isn't one of the most painful things to see? Someone with all this potential and beauty and yet crushed with the weight of the world.

Such a wonderful, deeply felt poem .. its words would have meaning however old or new.

So much of what you write is true, 'Ain't no pity for the people in plight today.~ I know we get fatigue and humiliated to~believing we are worthless and destitute.' Friend, empathy can cost too much, it means too many people sparing time from their own shallow worlds..

..and yes, the people who so often help are the ones who feel the same, who've gone through hell and are fighting to get out of it , 'Please my broken Angel walk with me.~Take my hand.~ The new day is rising from the East.'

You don't need help in this. You've conveyed such a tender, hopeful, imperfect image of new chances, and repentance. Awesome write. I congratulate you.

Instead of "Your world has fell apart" it would be better to write "Your world has fallen apart." The tenses match better. And "Desperate acts had left you feeling dirty and insulated from everyone" might be better if written like this "Desperate acts have left you feeling dirty and insulted from everyone." Also, "Jaded kisses and broken promises had left me empty" instead of using "had" the word "has" fits better and "The not so sweet taste of life has turn me bitter" instead of "turn" the word "turned" matches the past tense setting you have given. Same goes for this "The sad woman whisper" with the word "whisper," "whispered" fits your past tense.
I love this, even with how sad it is, because it speaks the truth. The world is no longer clean, no longer has sweet people who are innocent of the cruelties around us. Wonderful write. ^_^

i wouldn't change a thing
i like to see raw talent
expressed from the heart
it was genuine
and ironic
a broken angel
needing strength from a frail human
