~ Lipstick On Thy Heart ~

Updated on November 30, 2013

~ Lipstick On Thy Heart ~


Let thee of good hale abide, betwixt fluttering heartbeats of my simpering queen where I set thy unseen throne, to scriven, with flamboyant, feathered calamus, wrested in dutiful falls from your magical, peppermint sky, when thou art gliding in full flight.

Come thither, my plighted troth, beyond the realm of sylvan dreams, where shivers hath no spine, and dainty naiades weft, whilst cherubs warp newborn rainbows, conceived inside the nascent womb of thy muse, who tarry in wild-blue yonder, amidst tearful stars, espying gazes upon visions of thou and thee, ‘ neath their towering, ebony umbrella.

Peradventure, a fading day greets judgements of nighttide on darkling cusps of liquorice cloak, fused in smoked, cornflour blues; their aerial bruise bearing lesions of wounded tenderness, attest fealty to thy storge in contusion. So let forlorn seas of regal topaz dry up henceforth, deport and be banished to a distant moon, wherefore each drop mayest mirror mermaid tears you sobbed, when romance chaperoned thee to your lunar palace of sherbet crème, wherest bitter vacancy of thy beloved beau made itself felt, in painful hankers of a wanting heart.

Lettest the vapid, empty expanse, now usher your forever man, from thraldom, to tread imposing plateaux of doughty ghyll , in nethermost abyss, to be with you always, ‘till the horizon swallows heaven’s marigold eye, and weeping echoes, muted by hidden mistral, cease, and are heard, nevermore.

THE END

      Sir Romeo,

      "lipstick on thy heart"

      a kiss so permanent

      a kiss so sublime

      Shakespeare's finest

      a love that never dies

      SO much more than a poem. SO much more than prose.

      Hi Skye,

      Always good to have you drop in dear sis, and of course appreciate you meting out your copious blessings which only serve to elevate the well being from all who hear from your lovely words. I thank God for what I have and who gives us the ability(ies) to do what we do. Your own life seems permeated by continual thankfulness, which is magnetic and spreads like wildfire; like a habitual reminder to remember who we are and who to thank for being able to write here. Thank you, and send warm regards to you and your family for exciting and happy times ahead.

      Party on Skye....love you sis.

      What a wonderful comment you've left Miss Silent Movie Star :) Heard of the beauty of Garbo, Dietrich, Lombard and Davis, though not Seymour...shall investigate. Thank you for flying over for a read.

      Sir Laughalot,

      Part of Seymour's story is that it was a short one: "Only the good die young" kind of aurora... Plus, I kind of like the "see more." It reminds me of Oh! See Fireflies : )

      From your Lady in clear wrap,

      Lady Smiles-a-lot ; )
