last night in bed i was told a tale

of an Angel by heart & a Demon angel faced

both looked beautiful like a new born child

the tale progressed, unfolding what they had to hide

their pink soft lips forever wore smiles

smiles that concealed the truth of their lives

i sat tight in my bed without blinking my eyes

determined to discover the secret behind their smiles

the tale came to an end revealing their intent

where the Angel wore a smile to hide her pain

the Demon wore the same to hide his true face

  1. Oh, so l see, men are the evil ones who hide the truth while women hide pain. Very interesting, I feel like I learn something new about you while reading your poetry. I think you are an excellent writer, keep up the good work.

    1. Dear Richard… I did not mean to portray men as evil and women as angels.. it is just that we tend to use a she for an angel mostly. If you notice, the picture is of a girl that i hVe used. Which means that i never had any gender blocks or preferences while writing this poem. Still, i would like to apologize if i have offended someone or you unknowingly. Yours Truly. MySestina


      1. Tina, I was not offended at all. I was just being a little sarcastic. I love your poems. You are very good at what you do, sorry if you thought I was offended, you are great and I will keep following you for quite some time.
