An undercover angel
Looking for compassion left in this world
He wears his wings under his coat with his halo in his pocket
Every passerby ignoring his plea
His voice falling weaker upon those who carry doubt in their hearts
He stares up in despair
Arms heavy at his sides
Falls down to his knees
His love is stuck where hate resides
She stands there and stares through everything and everyone that stands before her. As if she had discovered another world that no one can see. A world within the confines of her mind that holds all the answers to any questions shes ever had.
Her eyes begin to water. I can see a single tear forming on the outer corner of her eye. It sits there still, waiting for its owner to set it free. It patiently awaits that perfect moment to do its job and show the world the emotion behind its existence. Its purpose is a simple one but more important than anyone can comprehend. What emotion it holds, no one knows. Is she happy, sad, angry, confused or simply just amazed by what she discovered.
She blinks. Her eyelashes kiss that tear goodbye as it makes its way down her rosy cheek. Leaving a trail behind that tells the story of her pain. As quickly as it fell it disappeared. She wipes it ever so softly with her fingertips. Her eyes open and she whispers softly into the wind……
I run to the mountains to be alone….. To think….. The quiet more peaceful than I can ever be prepared for….. My mind starts to go….. Thoughts echoing against the cavernous mountains and bouncing back to me as if they are replying to the sick and twisted thoughts I think…..
All this noise in my head….. All these thoughts….. Fear to the bone….. Insanity almost making sense….. Make it stop….. Shut it down….. I’m spiraling down to the ground…..
I run home to find sanity….. The stress of life keeps my thoughts at bay….. I think I can make it just one more day…..
An explosion like nothing I’ve ever felt before… Emotions spilling out from every direction… Leaving traces of stories I swore I would never tell… All out in the open…….I am now exposed… Vulnerability being the one thing I’ve avoided all my life… Hiding is where I find comfort and strength… All gone in the blink of an eye… To think I was so easily robbed of all that I knew… The walls I had built… When you said “I Love You”
