I once met an angel named
       deception
who whispered broken promises in my ears
so I would live in her lies
I once met an angel named
       vanity
who lurked with a vengence behind the faces she consumed in a morbid masquerade
to take away all feeling of something real
I once met an angel named
       ignorance
not understanding things so simple
unable to differentiate the dying from the living
maybe just because she didnt want to see the truth.
I once found the devil with an angel's face
an angel who came to me in silent dreams
saw my transparent secrets
taunted my weaknesses
gazed at me with those blue eyes
drinking my salty tears like the blood of love's
martyrs
which now mingles with my own.
I once found the devil with an angel's face
but I couldn't tell the difference any more.

Beauty is deceptive sometimes, but then again, so many things are.

 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

-Charles Brugnot

this is excellent...very well written and also thought provoking...lessons to be learned from this one...
take care, janet marie

 Now for me some words come easy...
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch.
You never knew what I loved in you--
I don't know what you loved in me...
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be...
How long have I been sleeping-
How long have I been drifting alone through the night...
How long have I've dreaming I could make it right...
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
To be the one you need...
Jackson Browne

An interesting piece, both in structure and in depth. Looking forward to reading more of your work.
