The Lady Timberland speaks: There are many things in life that haunt us, but particular phrases that struck clear to the heart of the human soul often repeat like a broken record. Young I might be, but full of pain and regret I am. It's hard to move on, especially when something so beautifully put comes back as a strange parody when that someone who still has a hold on your heart won't even look you in the face... hence, the poem, "Beautiful Angel."

********************

If I was your beautiful angel,
Just as you claimed,
Would you ignore me when I'm
Hovering right by your side?

Whenever you smiled,
I was the one to cry.
Whenever I sing,
I was the one to cry.

If I was your beautiful angel,
Just as you told me face-to-face,
Why would you use me just as
Your ornamentation for your need sexual?

Whenever you laughed,
I was the one with my head hung in sorrow.
Whenever you looked the other way,
I was the one walking away.

If I was your beautiful angel,
I wouldn't be hurting so bad.
If I was your beautiful angel,
I wouldn't be aching inside my heart.

Whenever you dreamed,
I wasn't the one you'd see.
Whenever you cried,
I wasn't the one you turned to.

If I was your beautiful angel,
I would have never left your heart.
But instead, as all things go,
I guess I'm not the one for the part.

Whenever you kissed me,
You were near only then.
Whenever you made love to me,
I wasn't the one you dreamed of.

If I was your beautiful angel,
Would I have to cry all the time?
If I was your beautiful angel,
Wouldn't you show me in time?

I'm not the one you want
Because whenever you're near
I feel distant.
I'm not the one you want
Because you've broken my heart
With your empty words.
You pushed me away
So many times.
I can't walk away
But yet at the same time
I know that I gotta go,
Leave you be.

If I was your beautiful angel,
You wouldn't lie to me.
If I was your beautiful angel,
You wouldn't have passed up the chance.

Whenever you get the chance,
I'm not the one.
If I wanted to be in your arms,
You passed up the opportunity for us to dance.

If I was your beautiful angel,
Would you be so far away?
I'd turn to silver-blue for you;
There's not a thing I wouldn't do.

Beautiful angel I'm not
Because I'm not the one you see.
When I dream,
I have to cry because you're the
One holding me.
Kissing me, brushing the hair away--
It's all a fantasy.
You didn't hold your promise,
So I gotta fall from my pedestal now.
Red lines, so angry,
Decorate my arms.
Red eyes, I'm so lonely,
But you're never around.
