My Nobleman


He came to me last night

Dressed as a nobleman of days gone by

And with chilvalry he did kneel before me

To hold my hand reverently in his

Kissing it with humility to appease me

And soften my view before he could start

To tell me what was troubling his heart

And I, as a noble Lady must,

Did bow my head once to convey my trust

And he sighed with relief

And made light his grief

Then stood up gallantly looking into my coy eyes

With a grace that could only come from one sincere

And began to tell me secrets only a lover could reveal

That he was tormented by loving feelings for me

And wanted me as his wife forever and for real

He promised to love me and provide for me

Every day of his life even if he must steal

On this he was adamant and made me believe

I was to be the luckiest bride and could now leave

My old life behind which was torn at the seams

And live happily ever after with my nobleman

Who was swift to sweep me up on his steed

And ride away gallantly to live in joy and peace.

A beautiful, compressed, fairy tale romance. I could see these people, noblewoman and man, as illustrated in the graphic. Very nice!

Fantasy can be so real to so many of us. This nobleman and gentleman found his maiden and fair she was to his touch, his kiss upon her hand and hopes to find her lips upon his one day. She gave him the look that only a temptress could reveal and he was smitten as both their souls entwined in that moment of bliss.

To share a look that reaches out in ways that only the two of them can feel is a wonder to behold. Their fire will engulf their desires for on another and no amount of water will ever extinguish it. For eternity is theirs and hearts are but one . A beautiful piece of art you unfolded here for us all to enjoy. Bravo, well done.

This is an incredibly epic poem scrittobene, it has style and brings to mind a time of chilvalry, and REAL romance. I love the image as well.

What a lovely poem... of a time far gone... or is it??? One can dream

Magnificent

...I always enjoy your narrative poetry Miss M - and it's uncanny how much your style is similar to that of Mister Moore of V .... you must be kindred spirits of poetry - I can't write in your style and as you know I can't figure out poe-tree to save my life - so I don't - but you always engage your lucky readers in a pleasing style with both emotion and intellect and as the V-Man says - that makes your poetic identity an art form indeed.

@ Frank - glad you liked my poem Frank

@ xstatic - so happy you dropped by again my friend and that you enjoyed the imagery.

@ Deb - many thanks dear lady for reading this and yes, it's such a lovely dream to have such romance

@ Vincent - Thank you dear colleague for your rave review which is always a great reward to look forward to.

@ Epigramman - Colin as always, you have good taste and you give me the highest compliment when you compare me with the incomparable Vincent Moore. However, I am certainly not in his league nor as prolific a writer, but perhaps he and I both share a similar level of passion for poetry and we write directly from our hearts and from our life experience - as opposed to straight fiction (which will always remain your domain Epi) . If this makes for interesting poetry, then we are fortunate in our art as are our readers. For those of us with this style, it is our gift to our readers to share what we have felt, thought or lived.

....and yes it's sadly true about my personal 'toupee' life - if I were to 'rite' about my own wretched real life I would put all of my words to sleep - well that's the ones that I catch before they run off - screaming - "yikes here comes dat fool epi-pseudo-man ......"

@ Epigramman - Ha ha ha - forgot to mention Colin that your poetic repertoire includes fiction, humour (with a British "u"), surprise attack, satire and even horror and the macabre - all with often some clever twist now known as an "Epi-twist". Your readers and your No. 1 fan (me) love it so keep it coming. Leave the touchy, feely, romantic, idealistic, heart wrenching, dark and tortured poetry to the likes of me and some others here at the Hub. LOLOLOLOL
