Loved by Angels or Delivered to Demons

June 29, 2017

Sean Michael, April 2017

Even as the angels’ wings disturb the air around me
I hear the demons scream
Somehow they’ve found me

Doubt strikes first
And I stumble
As insecurity delivers a blow
I begin to crumble
I try to speak
But I just mumble

As the words depart my breath
I question their sanity
Just another test
Of my patience for life’s monotony

I’m standing on the precipice
And if I jump
I wonder if the angels will catch me
Or let me fall to demons below
Teeth gnashing

  1. I suspect it is best not to jump.


  2. we pass thru very tough very rough times. we can get thru from it. 🙂


  3. Depression is a dreadful thing. What can one say that will help? If I could parcel up a stash of compassion and post it off I would.


  4. Even the angels aren’t to be trusted…I think you should trust yourself.


  5. Poe-etic, and interesting theology.


  6. Oh dear, this is disturbing. “When you feel your faith has failed you; all your hopes and dreams are gone; listen for the inner voice that whispers ‘Just Hold On'”.


  7. I think that even if those demons are there, I find it hard to trust the angels to catch you…such a hard situation.


  8. There is such angst in this and I feel it with you. Environment affects us so and I can’t begin to imagine what it is like for you. I pick up so easily on the moods of those around me. I send loving thoughts and prayers your way. You are a brave man.


  9. Although I am not religious, I’d like to believe you have been caught by angels. You have powerful prose and much to say. That, in itself, is a gift of light. You are clearly in touch with your soul or inner being. Continue to share this with the world. It helps us through darkness, too.
