Sunday Scribblings/Writer's Island - "Soar/Impulsive" - 5/18/08

This weeks prompts for Sunday Scribblings and Writer's Island were soar and impulsive, respectively. I am much too lazy to write two posts. This is my response to both.


















I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
WHO'S NEVER MADE MISTAKES
NEVER SUFFERED HUMAN FAILINGS
ALWAYS LIVED FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
ADORNED IN BRILLIANT WHITE
WITH VIRGIN HEART UNBROKEN
HAVING ALWAYS DONE WHAT'S RIGHT

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
WHO'S NEVER SUCCUMBED TO DESIRES
NEVER HEEDED TO IMPULSIVE CRAVINGS
OR BEEN CONSUMED BY FERVENT FIRES

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
AFRAID TO GIVE HERSELF TO ME
NOT KNOWING HOW TO MAKE ME FEEL
LIKE THE MAN I LONG TO BE

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
SHE MIGHT FLUTTER WHEN I HOLD HER TIGHT
AND SPREAD HER WINGS AND SOAR AWAY
WHEN I NEED HER IN THE NIGHT

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
THAT HUNGER HAS NEVER POSSESSED
THAT'S NEVER KNOWN THE SALACIOUS PLEASURE
OF FORBIDDEN LOVE'S CARESS

I DON'T WANT AN ANGEL
JUST THE IMPERFECT SOUL THAT'S YOU
FOR WITH NOTHING TO COMPARE MY LOVE
YOU CAN'T KNOW THAT IT'S TRUE

I KNOW YOU'RE NOT AN ANGEL
AND A SAINT I’LL NEVER BE
I'LL REMOVE YOUR RING OF LIGHT
TAKE THE CROWN OF THORNS FROM ME
