H is for Heaven’s Angel #AtoZChallenge

Heaven’s Angel
For Jessica
A poem by Whitmore Wright

When I thought GodH
Had abandoned me,
Left me to wallow in pity,
Heartache consumed
My body in darkness.
I had no pulse,
Until an angel
Descended from heaven.
She kissed me with lips
Red as apples.
She resuscitated me
With her magnetic touch.
She shocked my skin with
The electricity of her love.
Fresh blood raced to my heart
As she breathed her divine
Oxygen into my lungs.
And I arose.
Living and breathing
In the silk-clothed bosom
Of heaven’s angel.
May she never again
Let me plummet
To the hellish grave
Of love unrequited.

—Nortina


 I wanted to give you something different today. In my theme reveal, I told you that the title (although tentative) of this novel is “Love Poetry,” which means that eventually, the characters will be expressing their feelings through poetry. I’m thinking it will primarily be Whitmore and Jessica. I don’t want to spoil future scenes by giving away too much, but Whitmore and Jessica actually met at a poetry reading. That’s where they had their first connection . . . well, sort of. Anyway, H will not be the only letter featuring poetry, so stay tuned! 

Look, I got to participate in NaPoWriMo after all! 😀

By the way, have you heard “Get On Your Knees” by Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande? There’s a line where Ariana sings, “I don’t need a pretty poet, Oooh, gettin’ all emotional.” Yep, that’s definitely Whitmore.

Missed Bruce’s radio show? Listen in here. I’ll have the character’s reactions to it tomorrow and Saturday, so stay tuned.

Don’t miss out on the awesomeness of the A to Z Challenge!
