The Romantic

 

You say that I am a romance

A romantic phrase a lover’s chance

A walk down memory lane

Roses sweet and dewy in summer rain

A dreamer a reveller

Incense of aromatic myrrh

Fluent in languages of the world

Of divine nature and word

A fiction that reads so well

A rhyme slipped into spell

Educated maybe, master storyteller

Lying in grass, I gaze at the passing weather

I pluck and spin and then weave

I am a spider, the web outside is in me

I am romance with many eyes

I am a kiss, a secret or lie

I have learned the way and woe

Of a lover loved and equally broken so

 

*

 

I then turn my gaze, and look at you

Charming you think, how pleasant the smile

Eyes seductive and wise,

A romance, a lover’s chance

Subdued by the scent of my hands

This is your chance, to fall

There is another world, and I will show you

Of word and song, beauty in never-ending blue

I have written down the skies

With each revelation and guise

Spoken of endless stars

Written hymn to my deepest scars

There is something inside

A cage opened every midnight

And a bird, a raven of black plume

Is thus released into the night.

That was soo nice. Retro, classical, the way poetry used to be written without apologizing for it's simplicity. Thank you.

The intricacy unfolds with sweet words divine and darkness sores into the night as the Raven so beautifully seduces with words, cleverly intoxicating.
