522 No Angel [08 November 2002]

I’m no angel
and I cannot fathom
being one
the forbidden things in life
intrigue me
I’m not a firm believer
in the Christian ways
nor do I aspire to
so as such
I’m no angel
I have a taste
for wild things
and the unknown
and if I could be dragon
I would
to drown myself in pagan ways
to seek the real life
in all its embittered glory
knowing that here
and the afterlife
are what you make of it
