Am I an Angel?


am i an angel
sent here to save many lives
but i'm on the edge of suicide

am i an angel
whose mission is it to cure earthly ailments
when i feel so attached to heavenly elements

am i an angel
who strings together the bonds of love and friendship
yet i can't step foot through Cupid's door

am i an angel
full of unexperienced wisdom and intelligence to pass on
failing to transition to maturity all the while

am i an angel
present for others to benefit from
giving my soul to who i see deserves extra living

am i an angel
losing himself, his wings, and eternity
for bonds of the heart, friendship and mortality

or was i an angel
bored in heaven
seeking emotions to fell

now i suffer and hurt
now i love and care

i'm no angel
i'm just human

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
