Angel's Face in Which I See
Longing Poem Written 22 Years Ago
Quick Note Before the Poem
Scary; I wrote this poem 22 years ago! That means I was 18 when I wrote this. It was before my birthday that year. Anyway, here it is; my earlier work (pre-published days). You can tell that I hit my “teen angst” days around this time. Structure went out the window, but you can still tell I was longing for something and someone. I want all my readers to know me; so, I had to share poems from my past as well.
Poem- "Angels' Face in Which I See"
Angel’s face in which I see
A smile so sweet, it stills my beating heart.
Oh, how she provokes such feelings within me
How do you talk to an angel to impart?
Thoughts & emotions, running deep
Like a queen to a peasant’s mind
She needs but to reach out, and I’m her’s to keep
One look; and courage is too hard to find.
Is she as wonderful as she seems?
I wish to hear all about her, from her tender lips
For now; I shall have to know only my dreams
As she consumes my mind, like a total eclipse.
