"Angels Have Wings"

I don't need you.
I don't breathe you.
You're not a part of me.
For all your lies I've learned,
to cross these bridges burned,
and it sets me free.

I am not a puppet,
to dance upon your string.
I am not a fool to believe,
that angels don't have wings,

And you surely can not fly.

You crawl and squirm on your belly,
like the snake that you are.
You may have bit me once,
but you didn't leave a scar.
Your poison has no affect on me,
for I have a strong heart.
I will rise from the ashes,
while you fall apart.

Now beg for forgiveness,
down on your knees,
Because you're no angel, you see,
Angels have wings.

I get an image of you saying this with your arms crossed defiantly. Hang tough.

oops - left the "g" out of bridges.

Nikki - what a lovely poem. Really well written - but the fury is misplaced - no - it's unnecessary. No need to get tough. Stay who you ARE. But just don't let someone get to you if it's not sincere. If you offer the chance to be hurt - it's not his fault for taking you up on it. Just don't do it. That solves everything and you can still care. Just care for YOU more.

If you let it make you tough when you're really a sweetie - then you're being hurt twice as much.

ah thanx nelli. all fixed. and haha its funny u say that...because part of who i am is a violent person. i have a short temper sometimes and i get mad easily and i tend to hit and throw things when i get like that and cry profusely sometimes depends on the situation and why Im upset but those are flaws of my myself that i have come to know and work on changing. i dont like when i get like that myself and Im not like that so much anymore, but no this poem is actually about a girl who wronged me and I was upset about it, everyone thinks shes some kind of angel/good girl, shes far from.

Well - I can understand the quick temper and anger, even violence. But the "person you are" I had in mind was the one who later feels the anquish and wishes for something better, something which could depict "love" and "trust". Sometimes love & trust can just "be" so firm even in the presence of various uproars, but if they're lacking in the uproars and yet supremely missed, that's what I'm talking about. There's a mis-match between the actions and the heart's desire which seems irreconcilable.

Ultimately you have only one person to please & measure up to, and it's yourself. If you like it - truly - then that's IT.

Ah - the angel is a hypocriticcal girl. hm - well - the same stuff applies. Who and what she IS are her problem and don't reflect on who and what you are.
