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.

This is so amazingly powerful.. it is ragged, it is real and it is raw... When a man says it, like it is, it should come across as true... When a man is a poet, there should be no need to shout.. When a good man is a great poet, people listen and have no doubt... here is a good example that just goes to prove my point.... AGT's ...Neville

Throughout the poem speaks highly of love, loyalty to the core of friendship even though beaten down but stronger than before. In the line
"Broken Angel.
Please take my hand.
Walk with a contaminated man." In the absence of love pain grows stronger, suffering is harder to deal with but with someone you collide your world with something sacred happens between two souls who have understanding of each other and the pain is the motivated force making them both imperfect but perfect for each other. I love the intensity you've put in this poem and writing style and also the repetition of the idea of warriors of life. She's mad but she's magic. There's no lie in her fire." Charles Bukowaki
sincerely your friend in writing and life :)

Thank you Andrew. I agree and I appreciate the comment.
I think it's perfect and speaks from the depths of your soul, and is a timeless writing that could fit anytime and any place. We all have things that make us sad, yet we do our best to forge ahead and be happy.

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.

interesting. very interesting... thoughts you sewing here around the fiber of your fabricated words. there's no humanity.. around 'tis world just 'cause, it's well "vaporised" somewhere in the air, or lost in the doom of human-sins. "wounded-angel" is such a poetry that speakin' the resistance of true-love being lost, forgotten & brutally disappeared in the cloak of night. not a bad shot. nicely written.

Thank you Adams.
The person speaking, even though broken, is strong. Helping another.

I'd actually like to interpret this differently too: self-talk, to both masqueline and feminine self. Who's the real angel?...one owns true soul.

Hmmmm
