The life of an angel,

one would think, is simple.

She wakes up/ makes her bed of flowers/ takes a shower in manner/ wears her robe/ heads to the palace and receives instructions from the Master.


But what happens when an Angel,

is sent to watch over a man that is meant to be a Hero?

…And he thinks his just a man meant to be a zero?

He is someone in disguise/ a genius in God’s eyes/ supposed to be important in the kingdom of God/ but the things of this earth have kept his mind like a toad/ but even in the story of the princess and the frog

…the man comes out better than before.


When he wears a disguise/ she reciprocates/ he changes his name/ so she wears a new face to stay in his Lane.

Almost a family guy/ he welcomes her in/ but as soon as it’s time/ he shuts her out/ how will she explain?

The master refuses to let her back into the kingdom/ until she fixes what she hadn’t broken.

In their disguises they are against each other,

but if they opened their eyes they would see that one goes with the other.

… Zeus might even say, he is only half without her.

One thought on “Do Angels Breathe?

  1. This poem is supposed to be read with rush pauses…
    Also note, that some verses are a rumble…
    After the very last sentence, the reader must give out audible breathes – 3 Deep ones to be precise.
