And now for another selection from my series of poems entitled EARTHBOUND ANGELS:

Earthbound angel #5
Sensuous Angel or the Rose Of Sharon
edited 01/11/02

Being an earthbound angel
her wings curled up
enclosing her/cloaking her
parted letting him in
watching herself from afar
each time desiring/regretting the parting
lost in sensuous pleasures
feeding baser appetites
in the garden of earthly delights
in search of an unbounded love
seeking an Adonis
a satyr/a faun
who satisfies her desires
unable to see beyond the masks
willingly seduced
after a few drinks
the short lived affair
lasting a night or a weekend
left feeling confused
only to begin her search again -

From out of her eyes I see
a light shimmering
round about her body
shimmers
as she dips her wings in mud
the light fades
the burden too great
she goes on to fulfill her fate
trapped in an unending cycle
believing she can expect no more
of life than this
shapes her life to come
of an unending line of lovers
in the end all the same
all interchangeable -

Awakened from my apathetic cynical slumber
her angelic singing soothes
me for a moment /gives me hope
as her wings unfold
I desire to be enfolded
by the golden haired angel
her eyes innocent & forgiving
her face full of light
to be enfolded in her wings
of shimmering pure light
to soar above this city
bathed in her cool bluesy voice
before she becomes earthbound again -

EARTHBOUND ANGELS # 8
WOUNDED BIRD


Another fallen angel
a wounded bird
mistakenly fallen
at my door
I have no healing powers
no words of comfort
my caresses & kisses 
only burn your flesh my love
leaving more scars
upon your skin
I carry a satchel
stuffed with bits & pieces 
of sad stories & tales 
some of them second-hand
after leaving my care
your wounds will be deeper still
& you my love may never recover
as my pen spews bile
& contempt
my desire/ my love
can be fatal
to a wounded bird
your tough outer shell
does not stop me
I will wait patiently
my love for you to stick your
soft vulnerable head out
& with my sharpened quill & claws 
slash through your jugular 
gleefully watching
your body writhing & twitching
upon the floor
& I wonder if you
my love will come back
for more

I am a saboteur
who has been
hiding in the shadows
waiting for the right moment
to pounce upon your flesh my love
& greedily suckle at your breasts 
feeding upon your heart & soul
as the milky & bloodied
fluids which held you together
run down the back of my throat
I set my sites upon you my love
taking you into my confidence
wanting you / desiring you
as you begin to enjoy my caresses
I throw a grenade
destroying the illusion I created
as you my love drag your mangled
body out the door
I wonder what possesses me
feel a twinge of guilt
as I begin another
search & destroy mission -
