If You’re Given An Angel Of Love - Poem by Anita Atina

If you’re given an angel of love

And use her like a whore

Who has lost heaven on earth?

Whose misfortunes have you bore?

You want her passions, unbound

But not her love, to the fore

Do you realize with what you’re playing

And what bliss you may forego

She offers herself completely

And you see only her body

You’re happy lying by her side

But don’t trust her, inside your head

You let ego rule your heart

And your mind is fogged by logic

You choose to ignore what your heart tells you

What is it that you dread?

She asks not for any promises

Of material wealth or to be wed

She only asks for the truly precious

The warmth of your heart, instead

So run along, truant stallion

Roam the world as you please

In your silent moments

Find your inner peace

For when the roaming is done

And the world has lots its luster

You will look for the angel of love

But woe, she will be six feet under!
