Dark Angel

Poem By Steve Armstrong

I see you now,
and it makes me cry in my heart,
one so beautiful, and yet,
so damaged and messed up inside.

The scars that line your arms,
look like the intricate artwork of a tattooist,
those razor cuts and puncture wounds,
signs of a desparate cry for help.

That vacant look upon your face,
the doctors miracle cure;
Prozac, takes all your troubles away,
but all it does is pushes them deeper inside.

I see you now,
and it makes me cry in my heart,
one so beautiful, and yet,
so damaged and messed up inside.
My dark angel...

Ahh this is suce a great poem, feelings flowing all over the page, wonderful. I feel for this person you call your dark Angel, is she really a dark Angel though. I think this fragile person is in great need of love and understanding. My feelings are that she may have been without love or at least felt she was for some people who love deeply don't know how to show it. You Stephen seem to be a person full of care and loving feelings, hopefully you will find a way to reach out to your friend, to inspire her in some way, to let her know that you love her and want her to get well, but also let her know that 'God loves her' and he can make her well, all she has to do is call on Him. I wish you well Stephen and I will continue to read your poetry. I hope you will visit my world of poetry sometime.--Melvina--
This is wonderful Stephen........It's so hard to know somebody we care about is going through this. I hope you are there for her. sincerely, Mary
aww you really are a gifted writer - your images are beautiful! ! who ever knew that melancholy could be so awe-inspiringly touching and beautiful? read byron, he writes a whole section about that in Childe Harolde's Pilgrimage :) keep up the good work!
I feel it is the most personal poem from all your ones which I could read here... Full of sorrow and maturity. Full of you.
She sounds like she has found her White Angel Stephen, just remember, only she can make the changes necessary, all you can do is support her in doing so. 10 from Tai Angel with dirty feet!
