Butterflie Effect

What is true, canvassed by what is real?

Shall I expose what thy heart conceals?

A manifestation embodied from the depths within

Subliminal to the nemesis that carried a mortal sin

Interlaced and sanctified in the birth of Venus

Sedated by the spellbound eye and dulcet keenness

Defining the contour line as the lips softly utter

A symbol of marital happiness wings that flutter

An oath made in the quiets of the starry sky

Compelled by the melodic cadence of the Spanish fly

Creating a symbolic repetition of the essence confessed

Scrutiny upon thy eye as the midnight Eden undressed

Listening with a beautiful eye that captivated a vital flame

Tenacious integrity taken as treasure giving it a name

A timeless state that shall endure the unbroken zest

A unit of language spoken in love until granted eternal rest

My brain required a second read of that in order to fully comprehend your purpose!

Don't get me wrong. I mean that in a good way. Certainly a very original style you got there Bellawritter23.

I love to dabble in poetry now and then, but so far, no hubs on it.

Beautiful and voted up!

Thank you I can say this poem did take me days maybe even weeks to write and complete the meaning behind it by far has explained my present life and all around it. Thanks again for taking a second read and comprehending my style of write!! :)

Steve, I may have seen the movie way long ago but do not recall the plot of the story nor the moral. I will have to watch it again to refresh thy memory on what it what about, thank you for taking the time to follow and read my work and creativity :)))

Wow, is this the same Bellawriter I read? No, this is better, bolder and so much more amazing. What a great poem. This is a real gem. This is poetry I love and want to read again and again. Your power in these words and how you phrase everything. I don't know many poets who use the word "Keepness" the way you do, and I love it.

This is how all poetry ought to be written... with intelligence and passion ... and a love for poems.

Oh and I so love the amazing artwork here too. I would love to know the artist. Just tweeting this to 520 other book lovers I know. :)

Smiles and a million ty's

AP,I would like to say thanks a bunch truly appreciate the warm comment and the time taken to give my work some praise :) but I'd like to omit from the agony and misery for I have endured enough but life is a great big ball of them both so I guess a mashing I will go lol :))))))
