Man of God

Description
I totally disingenuous poem I wrote with the idea if I could pretend to beliefs I do not have that I could get what I want. So easy to bow to pressure.

No, I take the moral high ground.

Lyrics
I am no man of god,
but of broken glass and past tragedies.
More truth than lies fall from these lips.
I would lie to you if I could.
I would tell you of love that is not,
and sins uncommitted, damnation kisses,
and whatever you needed to hear.
I would seduce you with bad poetry and good wine.
Because every woman loves the badboy,
every woman lives for the dangerous,
but I have always been…too good.

But no more! I have given up my belief in disbelief!
Atheist no longer.
I live for salvation…for a need of forgiveness.
This life is now but clay.
Make of it what you will.
Your god is mine!

And, now, your parents will never approve.

Truly a bastard I will deceive to get what I want.
And what I want is you,
you harlot of Gomorra,
you bitch of the night,
slut of my nightmares,
saint without morals.
My sinning angel!

I sell my soul to a god that does not exist
to get you!
Atrocity begets atrocity and you drip
from my fingers
as does your wetness.
And blood will tell.

Blood always tells.

An untruth untouchable by divinity. I do love you.
From our first awkward word to our last half kiss.
I love you!

Because I….

I am a man of god!

After several listens, I think I can offer some
constructive criticism. The words are strong, the music sets an
appropriate atmosphere, the delivery could be more rhythmically
dynamic, the echo on the voice detracts from the listen. Just humble
opinions. cheers Christopher

Point taken. Sometimes I do a track more to "get it out the door" than I do to
polish it. I think you're right on with the echos and probablly the reading as well.

I am trying to get a reading done for every poem I wrote in '05 (that I like
anyway). This is impacting my current writing. I probably rushed this one to
"move on." Thanks for pointing out what needs fixed.

Cynical....
Can be an interested take, to play on words of many's, everday thoughts. I respect the artform, Musically, honestly didn't care for the vibe much, when I hear a music box , I have 2 sister's , they had music boxes, I wouldn't allow that creepy voice anywhere near either of them . But, sound was decsent and your message is clear, spoken well, a little echoey, but creative and imagineative.-

Two votes against the echo (and one in the forums), so it goes. The music box is
creepy. I always find them creepy. And the narrator isn't really a good guy. He's
willing to profess a faith as a means to a poor end.

It does frustrate me, as a non-believer, when it seems that women prefer beliefe
to nobility and loyalty. I'd rather be with a person who never needs to repent,
than one who needs my forgiveness constantly. I too often see female friends
being neglected by their other halves.

Oh well.

X offender?
interesting bedtime poetry...mmm...I am sensing some antagonistic feelings towards the female sex...well, I guess I don't blame you if you have to sell your soul just to get one...I suppose some have done it for lesser reasons...interesting usage of metaphors in your criticism on religion...so now that you are "a man of god", what are you planning to do to make the bitch pay for her sins?...mmm...moral of the day: never compose poetry with wet fingers

This poem wasa indended more as self indictment, rather than misogyny. He
is upset at women and god, but more because he's outcast by both.

And glad you commented on the idea of the non-believer selling his soul. I
also like the idea that people approve of a person, as long as he is outside,
"He such a nice man," until he wants to date your daughter.

Holds a job, doesn't drink, takes care of his mother and stray animals, etc.
The kinder aspects sometimes take a back seat to things that don't matter to
me (and yes, I am aware of the "to me" qualifier). People have their own
standards.

And I do like the idea of paying for sins. There also isn't an intended criticism
of religion. Frustration perhaps.

HaHaHa!
Reminds me of a line from Leonard Cohen's THE FUTURE:

"...all the lousy little poets tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson...",

---AND YET, it has a redeeming quality I can't quite nail...honesty
perhaps?

You seem frustrated by religion. I empathize! I for one have been a
serious and committed Christian for more than 30 years---yet nothing
has irritated and frustrated me more than the historical track record
and current day socio-political obsessions of the Church at large. The
whorish pursuit of power in the name of love is the cruelist of comic
jokes. It is precisely because the Cross is the total NEGATION of power
that it is the ultimate affirmation of love. Often pagans understand this
better than Christians. But I disgress...

Overall, a strange but worthy effort, this. I concur with the comments
re the echo on the vox though.

Peace!
