An Angel

Lonesome in the black of night, I think of you, an angel,
there in a river of moonlight. Oh, to view an angel!

A cameo against the dark, face seen just in profile,
its texture gossamer; I'd gasp, then pursue an angel.

Would you come If I hung in the balance of life and death?
Come to me like those of whom there are so few, an angel!

I dream of you; a shelter you would be, to take me in.
You alone could lift me, dispel my gloom, you, an angel.

Here I am, mere Earth Girl, rooted by rationality,
longing for one glimpse of what I never knew - an angel.

For Debbie Guzzi's Take the Leap Poetry Contest

    I read up on the form first. Repeating the one word in every couplet without it standing out like a sore thumb is the real challenge of this form. Within all the rules of the form this poem reads like any of your other stunning writes. I loved it.
