“He’s an angel, not a saint.” – Michael
He didn’t ask to be her guardian angel,
he didn’t want to fall to earth,
he didn’t know it would be so painful
to hide his wings and surrender his heart.
He pays attention to her every word,
tries to stop his feathers rustling like a bird,
he wasn’t ready to live like this.
He follows her all over town,
can’t bear to see her feeling down,
constantly longing for a kiss.
He’s no saint and he’s no sinner,
he’s an angel falling from grace,
an absolute beginner
when it comes to the human race.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads – Of Gods and Monsters
For today’s prompt Rommy has gathered seven pop culture quotes that have to do with angels, monsters or both. Our mission is to pick one and create a poem based on it. Our poems do not have to specifically be about an angel or a monster, but they should have some relation to at least one of these quotes. We must be sure to mention the quote somewhere in our posts.
My poem has gone in an unusually romantic direction!
