You Are A Ballad

You Are A ballad

There is poetry in my head and in my heart since I have been in love with you


You are a poem...

What sort?

An ode...

Or a sonnet?


For they are too ponderous and contrived.

But you...

You are a tempo dancing on the breeze,

A cacophony of apostrophies,

A metaphor manipulated melifluously

Into a sort of a ballad

That tells a tale...

And I long to be in it as it unfolds,

For it to lyricize of love...

Of how butterflies take flight and swirl at your sweet smile,

Your eyes dancing to the rhythm of your words

And I, floating on the lilt of your inflection.

How irresistibly my mouth finds yours

And there is perfect eloquence in the silence of our moving lips.

...Hello Minnetonka Twin up above - and yes, Carmaluda, I hit all of the buttons too like Liberace until I raced right off the end of my keyboard .

This is one of the very best pieces of writing I've had the pleasure of reading in quite some time at the Hub because it's different, it's unique and you speak your own language here and I wish I had written it -

Will be posted to our FB group called Let's just talk music or cinema with a direct link back here - in which you are invited to join .

and sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 4:38am
