~ I Never Claimed To Be An Angel ~

I never claimed to be an angel,
And I make my fair share of mistakes.
But my quest for simple honesty
is what separates
the fakes.

I never claimed to be an angel.
I’m just a human being: Real.
I can’t help it.
I was born this way.
And because of that,
I feel.

I never claimed to be an angel.
Never wanted a pedestal’s place.
I knew the ground at the bottom
was hard.
And I never wanted

that fall
from grace.

I never claimed to be an angel,
but I try my best to live.
I can’t help it if

I sometimes fail,
when I hurt
and can’t

I never claimed to be an angel,
I only wanted to be number one.
I wanted to matter

to the one I loved,
but broken trust is hard to be

I never claimed to be an angel,
I just wanted to truly be cherished:
To be somebody’s “baby” for REAL,
but with each new hurt,
that romantic hope

I never claimed to be an angel,
Never wanted to sit in judgment, no.
I’m in no way perfect,
So how could I judge?
But the deception and porn
hurt more

than anyone
could know.

I never claimed to be an angel,
But I try to do the best I can.
Maybe someday

I’ll have
the only man I love,
and he’ll love me, too,
for the human woman
I am.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
