~~~ Lady Muck ~~~

Updated on June 23, 2013

~ Woman ~

Indifferently pacific,

Unspecifically prolific;

Princess Nemo,

Giving me Emo,

Grasping vanity,

To avoid insanity.

Syllogistic refutation,

Elenchus to your false summation.

Psychometric dissertation,

Vilifies your life abstention.

Psychosomatic procrastination,

Defers my undue fascination.

How can we wax lyrical at the insipid cusp

Of this insoluble stagnation?

I vociferate my expletion, vexed, at the periphery of your invalid disgust;

Your adapted alibi, likened to a cracked cistern.

Clue me in on your adopted anger.

I court an addled propensity to laugh at my past

Through your astonished mind.

This sentient falsehood, that breathes for one second only,

Then returns from whence it came, to the darkness;

Juxtaposed, between a tortuous zeitgeist, and reality's door;

Panting with expectation, in hope,that a sainted sinner comprehends,

That what she is now, is what he once was,

And what she will be, is that which he must be today.

A proposal that tallies consideration

Of a wandering soul, in a maelstrom of possibilities,

To be safely ushered back to her understanding, of how life really is,

With the new-found addition of his timely intervention.

A degrading hullabaloo, rode the ecstatic months that passed between us.

Confused offerings of love, and hope, but sadly imbued with unrealistic destinations.

Time's arrow, flying back and forth by two crazed archers,

Bent upon reinforcing a shifting dream.

The vision of us, solidified, yet with no absolute foundation,

Save for, my incessant love.

There were only subtle whispers of our longings,

Never, it seems,to be seen in this life;

Just a fortuitous attempt to join two broken hearts,

To make one.

My perihelion, now my apogean yesterday;

You're still my world.

We orbit our mistakes,

Never daring to land an accusation against one another,

Because, no matter what circumstances attempt to prevail

Against our perceived, foolish endeavours,

We know, in our hearts,

That we truly love each other, no matter what.

We hurt, and we wound;

We fall out of tune.

But you're still my waking song,

The orchestra of my life;

The only sound I recognize

Through the haze of cognisant voices,

Clamouring in this crazy world.

My love for you will never die.

You are forever....

.... Woman...................................................

      It's WL! Yeah!!

      Thank you sweetheart - you're so generous with your appraisal, and I really enjoy reading your material, so I'll look forward to that. :)

      Hi Kathryn!

      I hope life is treating you well in Boston today.

      You're spot on; I reckon I swallowed a dictionary, and made you lovely folks work too hard to read this one, so I'll throttle back in the future, as I don't wish to alienate peeps.

      It's always a pleasure when you visit, and I'm very grateful for your always articulate, and lovely remarks.

      Best wishes,

      Google have informed me that they want to press charges against you for G.B.H. :)

      Anna is usually quite near the knuckle with her observations - I like her honed perception, and a genuinely nice woman as well.

      You're right; there is a cocktail of emotions here, ranging from the disbelief of suspended animation, to anger, hope, affection, and love, all circumvented by good 'ol lovesky. :)

      Thanks a tonne, for your kind, and generous comments.

      Yours Sincerely,

      I definitely need to look everything up in the dictionary! LOL! But I did enjoy the rhythm of your poem, though! Voted it up awesome, R.Q!

      My goodness, R.Q., the first half of your poem I felt like I should be consulting a dictionary. I saw a lot of words I don't see often! You must have a massive vocabulary!

      I especially adored the last few lines. Beautiful words, as usual!

      Have a wonderful weekend.

      Not only did I assault Goolge several times, but I think I need to follow Anna over here as I always lover her interpretations! :D

      I personally felt the tone kind of changed as this went on, from sorrowful or maybe bitter to hopeful and devoted? I don't know, but I enjoyed it immensely.

      Yours Truly,

      Hi Anna;

      There is indeed, a link back to some earlier work, and your observations are pretty darn close. :)

      Thanks a million, and I look forward to reading some more of your own work soon, and try to get some decent sleep!All the best;

      Very interesting. The love affair against all odds continues.

      After limited sleep my perception skills are poor to say the least; so forgive me if I am way off course!

      This links back to some of your earlier work?

      I think that the lady may be caged by past pain and the first person narrator has somewhat moved on from his own issues.

      The real thoughts are not spoken, the feelings exist; but sadly the leap of both faith and practicality may be too much to make.

      Very skillful use of language and I thought it flowed beautifully.

      This is my favourite work of yours to date.

      Awesome and interesting.
