RED ANGEL

RED ANGEL I see the fire in your eyes! This Red Angel, who's not human, intriguing with lies. Pointing to the path that leads to paradise. Ending Revelations with violence, breaking every inch of ice. Blazing wings like the sunset over a field of corn. A row of roses with rubies sharper than a thorn. A devious smile covering up a set of horns. Diluting me with images, since the day I was born. Goose bumps when your essence is near. I linger and shiver my lips with fear. A slithery hypnotic tongue, the Red Angel wipes away my tear. Holding the reddish key, whispering the word. "FREEDOM!"Into my ear. Like the crimson tide lifting me from drowning at his request. I find my heart pondering deeper and deeper within my chest. Blessed with the curse of 'death' when my demons are depressed. I'm still smiling to the sweet surrender of your breath. A halo exploding like the fur of a volcano filled with lava. Allowing the angel's advocate around~like a tree of strawberry guava. Swallowing my own drops of red blood from my own saliva. Living like the dead after a full bottle of vodka. I beg for mercy at the Red Angels cow like feet. Collapsing with sweat in his sweet eternal heat. Gasping for the fresh air to avoid the smell of rotten meat. I see the aura of an angel with his fangs ready to feast and eat. Falling into a daze towards the red picket fence. My Red House engraved with flames, after my feeling where condense. My soul tormented by goodness at evils expense. Flowing with every feeling including God's given sixth sense... By; P.D. ((( Merry X- Mass Everyone)))

PD This is such a darkish and deeply emotional poem. Your inner soul shows in the writing of each line. Thanks for the kind comment on my Blind Dates poem.

That there "Red Angel" he be a bad one. I don't quite know how to take this one. If it's alcohol - I been there. If it's hypocrasy, I been there. What is so good about the piece is there are so many ways to think about it. Love, daver

OH I really really like this it is very free verse like though I do hear some rhyme, I have only 2 suggestions, the double spacing is not helping, it makes it harder to absorb, and 1 line has an odd image, i think you can find a better one!~like a tree of strawberry guava~if you do it over soup me I want to read it AGAIN! Light & Love

Try like myself to look on the lighter side, though mixed emotions can leave one feeling empty. I hope to always be grateful for whsat goodness is present ... "God's sixth sense.... Always a surprise with words and art. Jan

"Living like the dead after a full bottle of vodka." Oh, yeah, I can see that red angel. I'm lying on the floor and the fiend is sticking to the ceiling. Listen! I've been there, done that. This is a driving fantasy, outrageous of course. Love, Dave

Amazing piece p.d. you sure know how to write. As Carrie mentioned, no wonder it's at the top of the charts. By the way, my poem 'Then Fate Took It's Turn' is true. I am the younger son in that piece. Happy New Year to you, have a wonderful 2011....:)
