Making The Choices

Making The Choices

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Something surreal and vivid based on dream and decisions.

"
 
On The Other Side Of The World
 
Watched The People's Actions
 
Listened To People's Words
 
The Lone Angel Waited For The Reactions
 
 
 
For Countless Sands Of Times
 
He Was Once Nobody's Angel
 
Until The Hourglass Was Slowly Crackling
 
From The Moments He Saw And Heard Someone
 
Beautiful Enough To Make Any Angels Fall
 
The Lone Angel Quickly Descended To Be With Her
 
And He Suddenly Became Someone's Man
 
 
 
They've Used The Sands To Build Sand Castle
 
After The Perfect Thrones Were Well Built
 
He Treated Her Like His Personal Queen
 
She Treated Him Like There's No Tomorrow
 
It Was Unexpected Miracle Of Real Love
 
 
 
Love And Happiness Remained As The Time Passed
 
Yet The Sadness Had Already Been Placed
 
Due To The Facts That They Are Not The Same Kinds
 
They Have Never Been Really Together
 
 
 
Her Patience Had Been Fading Away While Waiting
 
She Noticed That He Still Has His Wings
 
Told Him To Leave Her And Fly Away
 
Puzzled By Her Decision And He Did What She Requested
 
 
 
Just Only For A Small And Painful Moments
 
He Came To The Ultimate Realization;
 
 
 
"This Is Not What I Want"
 
 
 
After The Blazing Flight Down To Earth
 
He Panicky Rushed Back To Her
 
To Tell Her That He Made A Mistake
 
 
 
He Had Been Gone For No More Than Two Days
 
But He Was Already Way Too Late
 
She's With Somebody Else
 
 
 
He Tried To Prove To Her How Sorry He Was
 
But Her Sights Went Blind On Him
 
And Her Ears Went Deaf On Him
 
He Finally Left Her Alone So She Can Be Happy
 
 
 
Tormented By The Thoughts Of His Choices
 
Wondered Where And What He Did Wrong
 
The Lone Angel Wandered Around The Mortals
 
Thought Of Nothing Else But Her And Her Alone
 
 
 
After A While He Was Wondering How She's Doing
 
He Flew To The Rooftops Of The Buildings
 
Walked Around The Gutters And Watched For Her
 
Waited To Get A Glimpse Of Her Appearance
 
Until The Day He Saw Her With Other Female Mortals
 
They Were Talking And Smoking Cigarettes
 
 
 
Disturbed By The Sight Of Her
 
Disturbed By The Way She Sounded
 
Disturbed By How Much She Had Changed
 
 
 
He Couldn't Stand It Anymore
 
Thinking How To End The Pain
 
 
 
His Hands Reached Over His Shoulders
 
Grabbed His Wingspans And Held On Tightly
 
 
 
The Flocks Of Birds Flew Up And Soared Recklessly
 
Along With Their Painful Screeching Sounds
 
As The Lone Angel Ripped His Wings Out Of His Back
 
 
 
Stood Over The Edge Of The Building
 
Slowly Spread His Arms Widely
 
Looked Down At Her For One More Time
 
 
 
"My Sacrifice Is Your Salvation"
 
He Whispered
 
"For In The Name Of Love"
 
 
 
He Lifted His Control Off Of His Balance
 
Allowed Himself To Fall Forward
 
 
 
Watched How Close He Is Getting To The Pavements
 
He Turned His Back Toward The Ground
 
So He Can Look At The Sky
 
In Order To Bid A Farewell
 
 
 
The Sounds Of Cars Honked
 
As The Once A Lone Angel Crashed Upon
 
 
 
Bleeding To Death On The Top Of Freshly Damaged Car
 
He Let Out One Last Breath And Tried To Whisper
 
 
 
That Was Until I Woke Up
 
And Now I'm Trying To Decide My Choices

Debating with myself on how she's worth for everything or for nothing. And should I or shouldn't I wait for her.

Wow, it is a beautiful sad journey you take us on. Always wondering how our choices will effect our tomorrows.
Live in the moment and love what you have, the future is the future.

I really liked this, and I am going through a somewhat similar situation. Your writing gets you to really think about your life and how you choose to live it!

Wow....what a wild ride. I think there's some tweaks you can do, but I really dig the unconscious, surreal scenes. Dreams, jumping off buildings, all great stuff to contemplate.
