A poem from the challenge word “Cure”. Proposed by the exceptionally admirable blogger and poet Grexxen. Thank you for encouraging me forward!
A story about curiosity, bravery, and about overcoming all obstacles. A story that evidences the power of love.
A poem on the shape of a AABBCC
I give you,
In one of the angelic realms of heaven so high
Where light, peace and harmony live a beautiful lullaby
Resided a sweet, brave and caring angel, so curious
That for his human to guard was so laborious
For his appointed task, he always performed his best.
No wonder his human was thriving and overcoming every quest.
In the land of the angels, human eyes are never seen
They are all oblivious of height, race and color of skin
Only through prayers a human’s voice is heard
For what is important with he heart is transferred
Their realm is on earth, but there is a barrier so thin
Humans can not cross it, and angles rarely fly in.
But our sweet, curious angel to heaven’s border came near
Even though, his angelic life he treasured close so dear.
But his heart was unsteady and lured by God’s creation
Dragged his wings too close to the earth mortal damnation
With a little blow of the wind his angel shape was gone
In less than one moment, into a human he had transformed
Naked and nameless for a while he wandered
To the earth rules he now had to abide, he pondered.
Without his wings he needed a little effort for walking
Yet, seamlessly he soon started fluently talking.
Not long after, he acknowledge his human shape
Keeping in mind that soon back to his realm he had to scape.
Guarding his human was his life’s responsibility
It was what he most wanted, so he would find the feasibility
In the coming weeks, to many churches he assisted
Nothing worked but for a long time he persisted
He enjoyed the world and knew that it was not a mistake
Yet, his angelic duty could not be weakened or opaque
But now he was only human, and time made he grow weary
So he kept telling to persuade himself this innocent theory
“The rules are rules and a human I have now to remain.”
He thought with a bitter smile and a tear that could not contain.
Yet he was satisfied and eagerly his new life he would embrace
Like this becoming the first angel to travel the world in slow pace.
To the towns in the mountains, and the ones across the rivers wide
Tirelessly aiding all beings alike without leaving heaven’s guide.
While learning from humans their complexity and behavior,
He slowly understood that in themselves is their only saviour.
So, his unclear purpose on earth brought doubt and overwhelm
What was the reason that he had to remain steady in this realm?
Greatly he had contributed to make the world from all evil, clean
Yet, there was no more satisfaction from all the places he had been
At this moment, inadvertently he came across a new experience,
Dark hair, ruby lips and pale skin was this majestic appearance.
With her forest-green like eyes she made time and space fade
And when she smiled, he felt as his heart had been swayed.
The first acquaintance was awkward, but soon, close friends they were
Yet words for a confession came none, as he could only stand and stare.
Even a heaven’s mightiest warriors, of this kind of courage have none
For angels do not need it, they can be alone
But after meeting her, by himself he never wanted to be
And by knowing her, to stay by her side was his only plea.
But she was born smart and had eyes of a good observer
Effortlessly realized that his intentions were full of fervor.
But away she turn her head for she was submerged in regret
As her heart had been shattered and wasn’t healed yet.
Felt like a deadly disease accompany her during the day
Loneliness reside in her soul and wasn’t going away.
She fought trying to get better by keeping friends around
But insecurity swam in her veins and her heart surround
To get rid of the killer-depression virus she had no choice
Since sadness had mortally blocked her cheerful-lively voice
Grief was spreading and happiness was an ineffective lie
And yet everyday woke up and gave the world a big smile
Of her deadly condition, our sweet angel oblivious remain
As his angelic intuition diminished when to earth he came.
Aside of his love he deeply admire her heart, strength and wit.
He believed in her and encourage to her dreams never quit.
As it turns out, someone believing in her was the cure bottle
Now that he complemented her, the air supply no longer throttle.
Her condition stabilized and stop to worsen.
Soon she would be back to be a fully healthy person
His presence and lovely smile had brought her cure
He was right what she needed for her life so obscure
Finally her everyday was brighter
Once again she was her own fighter.
Planning and dreaming to stay together flourished
They needed each other for a happy life nourish.
But the rules are the rules and they must be obeyed
A cruel twist of life suddenly arrived to invade.
For his coming to earth was not a random circumstance
She was his human, who he had to guard at all chance.
When he heard her prayers of the truth he realised
That it was all part of the plan of the heaven’s device.
When her faith had faded away and he was sent to Earth
To help her find the way before she encounter death.
Now that the mission had ended and all been completed
Going back to heaven left their hearts broken and depleted.
Tears of hopelessness rolled down and reached the floor
When they hugged for the last time on the sunset shore.
She softly kissed him and slowly closed her eyes
And when she opened them, he was gone to the skies.
She would rarely spoke of the painful, bitter goodbye
For days she would not sleep or eat but only cry and cry
Since that day, he had to guard her from his land
Unable to even see her, because that is banned.
Her voice is her prayers he would always hear
Wishing from his heart that they could be near.
But the rules cannot be broken, twisted or bent,
So, there wasn’t any plan that could their situation amend
She fervently prayed to the archangels so mighty,
Being careful of her words and speaking politely.
She pleaded to have him back or at least to have a trial
But how could she know? He never spoke of the guile.
But since she loved him so much, it was easy to conjecture
She realised of his life on heavens and earth adventures
For the first time they angels set up an official court
And for many days they discussed, spoke and revoke.
Her intense prayers, they could not longer ignore
Pleading for him to come back and be with her forevermore.
A decision was taken and there was nothing to be done
He was set free and could now to human’s realm be gone
They were equally each other’s cure from mortal death
And for many years they lived happily together on Earth.
Now, I sat to write their story for your heart’s delight
Of a kind of love that will forever live in the heights
I am true witness of this curious case of love’s reich
For in my veins there is angle and human blood alike.
