I returned my halo, I gave back my wings.
I was sent to be your angel and you would not let me be
A help, a love, a hope... not anything.
You closed your door, so eventually... I walked away.
The assignment was too damn difficult...
To bring happiness to one who would rather be sad.
To love one that does not desire my love.
To help one who is so sure he can do it all on his own.
Why try to open eyes that are more comfortable sealed shut.
You asked for me, chased after me and then chose not to let me be
The one that walks with you.
So I gave you back to the Universe
And I trust with me or not
You'll find your way to peace eventually my love
We all do.
Hear I am
An unwanted angel visiting earth
No halo no wings but I can fly when I need.
And as you have no need of me I'm free
So I am a traveler now, exploring this realm while I'm here
Offering my open hand and heart to others that may have need of a girl
That never fully belonged in this world
And they do. They call me beautiful, accept my help and even say thank you.
Through those others I've discovered
An unwanted angel can be of some use in this restless realm after all.
And because of that you were worth the fall.
After ever, after all.
And I am at peace if I am only to be
An unwanted angel traveling the earth.
Poems I've written over the course of my life and recently.
