understand me in the ways I want to be loved
reveal to me my hybrid belonging
what makes me and you an eternal motif
as muses for college kids to emblazon
on crisp white journals
I will start writing again soon. I’m in a non-committing mood, where sharing some of my favorite pics of the week is really the most I can muster.
Anyways, I just thought that first, this woman has an amazing back.
And I want to get married in a forest, with a backless dress, and flowers in my hair.
I wonder how differently or similarly my life will turn out for me. Hopefully it will be wilder than my most unforgiving dreams.
Ah! Let me look a long while in thine eyes, for they are deeper than the depths of thought, and clearer than the ether after rain, and suaver than the moving of the moon, and vaster than the void of all desire.
This poem, Impromptu by Wilfred Owen is amazing and hard hitting.
I am easily seduced with well thought words. 🙂
…and believe me when I say that I am blessed to have met you,
You embody every trait I coveted
everything I wanted to share
captivated the beauty I saw into your eyes…
and despite the downfall, the curtain’s crash;
I am glad that we happened.
Oh lover of mine, it’s now my time to muse.
A little too late, glorious memories escaping in vivid hues…
When I described to you, your immense measure
I painted you as paints seeping through, dominating pleasure
I am the anticlimax of our love story
I am the silence between each breathless confession
I am the repetition of all your past torments
Hurried words you blowed into my ear
A conniver’s kiss that dragged you into a world of self doubts
Troubled, plunging abyss beyond what is yours to measure
The tale has ended, the actors disperse
Curtains tear down, lights turn out
I cannot make out your face in the crowd.
“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.” —Dead Poets Society
I am easily wooed with poetry. A man that’s good with his words and can express himself in an appealing manner can very well, just have me. haha!
