Angels Feared - Poem by Doris Cornago

Fought hard, still missed the mark
Yet synchronicity has aligned
Our purpose, looking at the
Distant unseen things
With night vision
Not double
Illusion
But
Solid
Foundation< br>Body heat showing
Where we walked, talked
Maps marking where hearts
Bled the most, forfeits flowing red
Yet tread where angels feared, unafraid

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Missing the mark is not the end of the road when someone has your back. You need someone to remind you of what is the purpose or why one needs to continue the fight despite the odds. Nothing is impossible to those who are cleaved together, seeing the ultimate purpose.

    Sorry Doris, I do not like your formatting. Hard to read. The last line is a cliche. Cliches are not for poems where we expect poetic amplitude. (Report)Reply

    Sorry about the glitch which usually happens when I use my tablet. About the cliche, I really want to use angesl feared to highlight the fact that this person will go where no one else will. Well, can you think of another metaphor. Never scold a poet, Robert, it's his right to say as he please.
