I’m not giving you a heart or a beautifully penned poem.
Wrapped in a brown parcel;
Like the moon shedding light onto your darkened world.
Multi layered, complex , hard to unravel the mysteries of a woman.
You peel trying to undress her;
Feeling the curves of her smooth bottom, breasts, hips. Undressing love, until there is nothing but a twig.
Shatter her in half.
You will feel the sting burn your eyes. Tears. Trembling reflection.
The fiery kiss will leave you with an urge for more. An addiction;
Leaving her breath , the taste of her love on your mouth for days.
Faithful, like we are.
As long as we both are.
Shrink it to a wedding ring, if you want.
Leaving the perfumed scent on your fingers for eternity.
Clinging to you.
Your name engraved next to mine on the little gold lock , it’d be a good idea. That’s what you said. We attached the lock when we were both young , you seventeen , me fifteen. It was a proposal, the closest thing to one. Cementing our love.
We were in our youth,naive .I suppose that’s the nice thing about being young, you don’t know a lot about life. Our love like a never ending summer. Cocooning us in a blanket of warmth and comfort.My berry lipstick staining your mouth and cheeks.
The autumn walks along the barge hand in hand .Summer passing us by like floating clouds. We never wanted it to end.
In a euphoria of happiness you twirled me round and round at prom; like a disco ball.
Ten years later we got married , we’ve had a good life ,successful marriage, raised kids.
John..If you’re reading this, you know this is my note. It was the breast cancer that killed me .You were by my side every step of the way. I love you ,more than words and letters can describe.
I want you to know that in every argument you were right most of the time , even though you let me win. You let me have the best years of my life supporting me throughout. Still having our autumnal walks and kisses ; despite us being in our seventies.
I’ll still watch over you, you’ll need it . I know you’ll miss me; my cups of tea, fairy cakes ,my Sunday dinners.
We’ll be reunited.
Hello readers sorry my blog post is a little late , I don’t think this is the best post I’ve written ; it did make me cry so I suppose that’s a good thing. I’ve been bogged down with college work lately even though it’s been my first week back.Then there’s been the university visits. This poem is pretty self explanatory inspired by some locks on a bridge I saw in Derby and party the ending to Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan. I’d love to know your thoughts on this good, bad and what I can do to improve.
