Angel of desire



My sketch was inspired by Matthew Mayfield's song; Heart of Wire. Off the back of the sketch I wrote the poem that follows.

When the Angel of Desire is home and free

love can be true between you and me 

as soon as your lies are barbed but discreet

the Angel of Desire becomes the Angel of Deceit


When the Angel of Desire turns to Deceit 

there's a place somehow where home and harm meet

the hands that once loved turn caresses to shards

it's the sobs of this Angel that hardens our hearts


When the heart holds true and the Angel is home

your love lingers freely with no fear of alone

as soon as that truth taints the love that could live

the Angel becomes captive to the heart that can't give
