Angels Don'T Come Easy (2015) - Poem by David Joel Rodriguez

Crossing seas of beautiful blue
Sailing away, admiring hues
Somber rays show me a view
Gentle winds guide me to you
A rhombus cloaks my path ahead
In darkness I pray to see you again
Day by day I whisper your name
Alone I am, to think you, I'm sane
The waters clash and reminisce
A certain heat I'd love to dismiss
Edgy storms appear to be near
Like being without you, living in fear
Left or right, I'm caught in a tidal
Up and down, my decision is vital
Hours pass feeling scorched and numb
Floating away from what we've become
In this heat I doze on the simple days
Dreaming away on your angelic ways...

“Sometimes I'm afraid to taste you, I don't want to taste you because I know I will fall in love with and I'm afraid to lose you, if I taste you I am going to go crazy, more crazy than I already am for you. If I do lose you, it's because 'I tasted you'.”

Soon do I wake with memories of you
Drained, yet leaking what I couldn't undo
My abrupt departure was not my intention
'Entangled heartbeats just lost connection'
This heat unleashed this mumbo jumbo
tossing and turning hurting my elbow
A simple pain you cured with your touch
A smile, a stare, and a kiss soon to clutch
The seas become paralleled at last
Aching with thoughts from the past...

“I feel loved, yet lost. Everyone takes me in yet I feel undesired. Found, yet undiscovered. Sometimes I just don't know where my tears come from. I am so drained and dehydrated. How could I leak when I have nothing left to leak.”

Lightning roars in the distance
Like heart rates still in existence
Your voice still lingers in my mind
Keeping me at ease and aligned
I slowly extend and reach out to the air
Visualizing a face that's not really there
I grasp and clinch my hand in sadness
How does an angel stop this madness
I shed my last and lonely empty tear
Yearning how I wish you were here
A journey of thoughts it turned out to be
Wavy tribulations knocking sense into me
Perhaps to think of you, kept me alive
To think of you, kept me from my demise
Thundering rains decided to cease
Awake I am, awaiting your peace
Awaiting your touch, so heavenly
Awaiting your lead, to my serenity
