Ecanus•net :: Poems
So here we are, Fallen Angel's poetry page. I thought about arranging them by subject, then I thought about arranging them by date, and then it all started getting rather complicated, so I decided instead just to stick with a plain and simple A to Z by title. Want to see all the poems with titles beginning with C? Just click the 'C' and as if by magic the poems shall appear! Them squirrels that run this place ain't half speedy!
This is my assorted collection of poems spanning the years. These cover many times, places and feelings. Some have details of where I was when I wrote them, what I was doing, and what inspired them. With others, it's so long ago now I've no idea where they came from, only that I liked them enough to keep them around.
Some were written as 'me', some for other people, and some while I was trying to get "into character" for whatever I happened to be writing at the time – the weird ones, I'm claiming insanity grounds on. ;–)
I found it by the side of the road,
Wet, dishevelled and grimy,
And took it home.
I cleaned it up,
And it had pride of place,
Until it got tired of the light,
And the daily tedium of life,
And became grimy once more,
And wanted to hide away.
Now I take it out sometimes for special occasions,
And decorate it with bows and ribbon,
But it grows weary of bows and ribbons and tinsel,
And prefers the comfort of the dark.
It tires of the mask of cheer,
And the obligatory bows and circles of tinsel.
So I leave it there,
Praying that one day it will come out unbidden.
