Orlando Belo Poems

An Angel appeared beside you
when I turned my head.
He blew on your face and removed your pain,
and then raised your spirit from the bed.

I was talking with some friends
when you appeared out of the blue.
My voice failed in mid-sentence,
at the first sight of you.

Sitting alone in the country garden of cottage 82,
on this July day, with the sun shining through.
Watching the dandelion seeds, as they are wafted up high,
and just observing nature, as the day passes by.

I was concerned about the time
that it was taking me to pee.
The pressure wasn't what it was,
and it flowed intermittently.

Yesterday I was desperately unhappy
and didn't know which way to turn.
For some reason you turned against me
as though love's flames ceased to burn.


I was woken by the howling wind in the small hours.
The clock was showing three forty-four.
The shutters were banging against the outside wall
and a draught blew under the door.


The first time our fingers ever touched
we shared a contact so heavenly.
You took your heart and all your dreams,
and with a smile passed them to me.

As I walk in this stifling heat,
with no shoes upon my feet.
I search for wine, women, and song,
as I hopefully go along.

You say that you live at the top of the hill,
but that doesn't mean much to me.
It's what you feel deep in your heart
and not the silver spoons and money.

You gave me the spotlight before it shone,
and gave me the confidence to carry on.
You kept giving me that important push
when I was down and out of touch.

The sun casts morning shadows
over the frost-covered ground.
Blackbirds search for breakfast,
but there's nothing to be found

I found myself standing in a cornfield
on this warm summer's day.
An afternoon wind blew into my face
and literally carried me away.

In the early hours of this morning,
as I lay sleeping in my bed.
I experienced a most peculiar sensation
coming from the inside of my head.

No matter how much I try
I just can't stop loving you.
You said we were finished as a couple,
but what am I supposed to do?

You're always placing me on a pedestal
and I really don't stand that tall.
You look upon me as someone special,
and that's definitely not me at all.

I'm distraught without you
and so full of distress.
My heart's up in my mouth
and not in my chest.

Upside down, yes upside down,
this world is a funny place,
but would I see it differently
if I wore another face.

You are truly a curvaceous beauty,
an unbelievable sight-for-sore-eyes.
I've never ever seen one quite like you,
you are so alluring, you hypnotise.

There is nothing left to do or say,
I've done my best in every way.
I've tried to live as a decent man,
and be as honourable, as I can.

The Best Poem Of Orlando Belo

An Angel Came

An Angel appeared beside you
when I turned my head.
He blew on your face and removed your pain,
and then raised your spirit from the bed.

I asked him if you were going to heaven
and he said, 'That is the best place to go'.
I then asked could I be with you when I died?
And he said, 'God alone would know'.

Inner Demons II Inner demons question every movement, decision, idea, and thought at every level. Their sole purpose is to drive you insane, they are not there to help you. However, you can use them to be creative, but you do so at your peril. 14/6/13 amended 16/8/15

How many times has she suddenly said, something like, 'Don't you think you should get ready dear? ' And I would reply, 'Ready for what? ' And she would say, 'To pick up the paint and wall-paper.' And I would say, 'What paint and wall-paper? ' And she would say, 'We discussed all this last week.' And I would say, 'What did we discuss?

Creativity A human has been created to be creative in body and mind from the moment of birth. The creative spirit is responsible for transmitting chemical impulses to anyone it encounters, thus stirring a response in the form of a feeling or an emotion. The purpose of the creative spirit is to be positive, and uses its ability to try and reverse any signs of negativity. However, a person born without a creative spirit is deemed to be negative, and is therefore starved of many of the emotions of life. Amended 22/8/14

The Time Of Vulnerability If you are a person of strong character and mind, and are not easily led as a sheep. In your dreams you'll be taken from your comfort zone, and as a lamb you'll be too embarrassed to bleat. And if you are a natural born follower, that's content to be just another sheep. You will be thrust to the front as a leader of many, and the fear will wake you from your sleep. 12-2-12
