~~~ May To December ~~~

Updated on May 14, 2013

~ May To December ~


A bleak,winter haze,

Clouds the bright,morning star;

Freezing-cold days,

Locked in death,as they are.

Visions,of a face,blink,

Then soon,disappear;

Her ghost,sheds a trace,

Of a time she was near.


Four-thousand miles,

May seem so very far,

Though both sleep 'neath heavens,

And do dream the same stars.

Moonlight,reigns down,with

It's silvery-blue glaze,

Speaking velveteen words,

Which he no longer says.


The silence of her,

Is his music,tonight;

An echoless tune,

Rings arpeggios of spite.

Double-minded woman,

How he wished you were true,

For his house,would look good,

When it's wrapped around you.


Thinking 'bout her,

Lumps the throat,burns the eyes;

Knotting,the innards,that

Stifle the cries,

Of a heart,that is gagged,

And is taking the strain,

From a love,she has tagged,

Mustn't speak her sweet name.


Saline streams,that

Meander her cheeks;

Released,by the force,of these

Painful,few weeks.

Sparkling,salt beads,

Masking eyes,of flawed gladness,

Race verily,from the author

Of their mournful,new sadness.


Sell him your tears,and

He'll buy you a song,that will

Bind up deep wounds,

Of those times,you were wronged.

Decant,diamond drops,

Like expensive perfume,

To be turned to a joy,

You'll be wearing,real soon.


Held here,tonight,

All the love,you have sought,to be

Messaged,to you,

With the speed of this thought.

So,take what he gives,

And then store it away;

For a time,when he'll hold you,

One bright,Summer's day.

      Sorry, RQ! I thought I commented on this, but I guess I didn't..... I read it late last night, very romantic with a touch of sadness! My heart goes out to you..... I hope this is just lyrics and not your actual feelings! In any case, it's beautiful and touches the heart :)

      Alway waiting for the next one.....

      Yes... I've been fortunate enough lately to have quite a bit of time to spend on here... I doubt this run will last, but I try to be good to people who are good to me you know? Sometimes it's a bit overwhelming. And all the while... I come flip by your pages to see if there is any life, but I must move on :-)

      It's not a matter of what I deserve, though that's sweet of you to say... I just cringe to think that you've sent something my way... thinking of me and I missed out on it, but like I said, it's okay... not your fault. No sense in crying over spilt milk :-)

      Yours,

      Cat

      Yes;I'm glad to speak to you,also.I see from the notifications that you've been busy commenting.I'm really annoyed that you didn't get what you deserved...I'll try not to defenestrate this piece of electronic junk, then lol!

      Y,

      Awww, I'm glad that you missed me... I came looking for you a couple of times today :-) Fortunately, I had a weird, kind of busy day which almost helped distract me from you. I'm sorry you've had such a bum day. Hopefully you can relax and enjoy what little bit of evening you have left. I would've super enjoyed seeing your name in my inbox this morning... it would've certainly started my day out with more energy :-) I got to see you now, so I'm happy.

      Yours Truly,

      Cat

      So glad you enjoyed it.It's been really difficult getting to talk today;that's why I sent a message super-early the last a.m.-haven't really had time to myself,as I haven't stopped all day-just now managing to grab some down-time to chill.I missed you.

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Wow, wow, wow... my eyes are filled... I mean filled with tears! This is so beautiful. I feel this, deep, deep in the very bottom of my stomach. Wow, I have to let you in on a secret, when I listen to music, I mean beautiful music, the kind of songs that I would want sang to me... I make them mine, I make them personal and I live there while it plays. I made this mine... I had to... I read it twice and I just love it. So beautifully done Romeo, truly impressed!

      Yours Truly,

      Cat

      You're so kind.It's sometimes tricky picking subject matter which is a far cry from the usual writing,which I take a chance on.Thank you for your always welcome,contributions.
