Sunday Scribblings/Writer's Island - "Soar/Impulsive" - 5/18/08

This weeks prompts for Sunday Scribblings and Writer's Island were soar and impulsive, respectively. I am much too lazy to write two posts. This is my response to both.


















I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
WHO'S NEVER MADE MISTAKES
NEVER SUFFERED HUMAN FAILINGS
ALWAYS LIVED FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
ADORNED IN BRILLIANT WHITE
WITH VIRGIN HEART UNBROKEN
HAVING ALWAYS DONE WHAT'S RIGHT

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
WHO'S NEVER SUCCUMBED TO DESIRES
NEVER HEEDED TO IMPULSIVE CRAVINGS
OR BEEN CONSUMED BY FERVENT FIRES

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
AFRAID TO GIVE HERSELF TO ME
NOT KNOWING HOW TO MAKE ME FEEL
LIKE THE MAN I LONG TO BE

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
SHE MIGHT FLUTTER WHEN I HOLD HER TIGHT
AND SPREAD HER WINGS AND SOAR AWAY
WHEN I NEED HER IN THE NIGHT

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
THAT HUNGER HAS NEVER POSSESSED
THAT'S NEVER KNOWN THE SALACIOUS PLEASURE
OF FORBIDDEN LOVE'S CARESS

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
JUST THE IMPERFECT SOUL THAT'S YOU
FOR WITH NOTHING TO COMPARE MY LOVE
YOU CAN'T KNOW THAT IT'S TRUE

I KNOW YOU'RE NOT AN ANGEL
AND A SAINT I’LL NEVER BE
I'LL REMOVE YOUR RING OF LIGHT
TAKE THE CROWN OF THORNS FROM ME

You may not want an angel,
but it seems like heaven to me :-)

I think an angel would be extremely hard to live with. If one fell in the water can't you imagine her complaints about her wet feathers?

Passionate poem....yeah angels are hard to live up to! They belong in the cloud looking down on us anyway!

The angels...i love them, not sweet, saintly creatures, but vibrant women, and your words are wonderful.
Mature, sensual, real.
Very nice posts.

:I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
WHOSE NEVER ACTED ON DESIRES
NEVER HEEDED TO IMPULSIVE PASSION
OR WAS CONSUMED BY LUSTY FIRES:
