Makeshift Angel

December 5, 2008

He should not exist!
In so many ways his being here defies
Absolutely Everything!
And my cosmetic makeup should not draw him closer….
But everything about him amazes me
Borrowed time of a
A borrowed Angel.
His time with me is precious.
What a curious soul
Tilts his head in amusement.
His arms hold me to a Hope I should not nourish
Only a second-
Now released.
It is I that longs to be caught.
A gilded promise
From a Makeshift Angel.
