~~~ Delectable ~~~

Updated on January 1, 2016

~ Delectable ~

I sought through mists of seven-fold eyes,
Pierced Sun. to Sat. in night's disguise;
Thee loved one Friday, garbed in black,
Whence Sunday came, you took it back.

Now, what's that sound which gores my soul?
My beautiful woman whose tears cry kohl,
For skies bold promise of violet smile,
Won't meet rouged curves bowed in denial.

Should gates of May relinquish reason
To one whose joy stole lover's season?
Sham pain, in vain, won't change the day,
You took his love from far away.

O, sorcerous woman, who crafts man's fall,
Affection's nought but bitterest gall;
Lo! change thy ways of tepid haze,
Bring sunshine back to Summer's days.

      Dramatically delectable indeed! This one really grabs your attention, especially those first two stanzas. Each line is amazing, but I really loved, "My beautiful woman whose tears cry kohl," Wow, excellent poetry dear Romeos!

      Up and more and away again.

      Hi Faith;

      Really kind of you to stop by and thank you for your uplifting reportage, and pleased that you found something in there which you liked.

      Good Day Wayne;

      I trust you're in good health and thanks for dropping by with your encouraging commentary; pleased to say that this one was only a fiction, but seen so many friends go through the mill like this, as indeed I'm sure most of us have at one time or another.

      All the Best,

      Hello lifegate;

      Thanks a million for alighting for a time and you're very welcome. Seems that ' trouble with Eve ' is all too common lol!, but really sad if reconciliation cannot be fathomed, and denigrates into that ugliest of all women, unfaithfulness, which I suppose can be true of both men and women equally.

      I hope that all goes well with you and your kin and continues to do so for a pleasant end of week break.

      Kind Regards,

      Hi there, The Stages of ME;

      What a wonderful thing to say and thank you for such incisive kindness. Very pleased to make your new acquaintance on here ma'am, and would like to hit follow in order to keep up with your own writings which you have scribed from what looks to be a staunch faith in the Lord, from a cursory glance at your Hub articles.

      Sending peace & goodwill from a handsome April in springtime's unusually sunny England.

      With Kindest Regards;

      Romeos. Thought to stop in today for a read. I am blessed indeed with your magical words of story telling. Many have been stung by a womans demise. I thought of Proverbs when I read this. The scripture verse I do not know off hand. Man is warned to stay far away from the wicked woman. This is another amazing piece of art work. Thank you for it precious Romeos. You are truly gifted.

      I do pray all is well with you my dear brother. I have not been on the hubs for a time. Hope to get back soon. I am about my Fathers business. All is well. May Gods favor continue to be on you in all of your comings and goings dear Romeos.

      My love in Christ Jesus. Skye

      voted and sent out!

      Hi Skye;

      Yeah; I was contemplating Proverbs when writing also :) Glad to hear that all goes well with you and good to know that your Spiritual flow is on the move. All my best to you and thanks for your blessings which are wonderful. Will need to find another financial avenue for some of the writing to travel down as it doesn't seem to be making enough for the chosen charities on HP alone.

      Always a pleasure to hear from you beloved sis and thank you kindly for your generosity and may God bless you also as He has in the past. Sending virtual strokes to baby Zoey :~)

      Loving Regards;
