Broken Angel

January 6, 2009
By Kelsey Johnson, Bartlett, TN

So beautiful,
the Angel from my dreams,
snow white wings,
dark curly hair,
long eyelashes,
beautiful Angel.

Then the Angel came down to earth,
but only to hurt,
and the angel did hurt,
the cruelties of humans,
poor beautiful Angel.

Then the angel could hurt no more,
he had had enough,
because he couldn't feel,
he had been hurt to much,
benumbed Angel.

The humans had broken him,
the beautiful Angel's wings
were ripped and torn,
He would never fly again.
beautiful broken angel.

How could they hurt you so?

Broken Angel

But i love you,
I can show you how
to fly again.
But the Angel shook his head,
and said,
I need to be alone.

The thing is though thats what He really needed,
He really needed somone to
really love Him.
Someone who would care for him.
Someone to fix the broken wings,
and fill the empty holes.
But he just shook his head.
Alone beautiful Angel.

Broken Angel you will never be able to fly now.

Broken Angel.

How could they hurt you so?
