~~~ She Was Legend ~~~

Updated on July 12, 2013


Forbidding nights, conceal collective woes of unrequited love across a sultry land. Undisclosed forays into tattered affections, once valued, now lie of hate-tinged gall.

Swearings of eternal love, lost in a moment of yesteryear; the embers of a passionate dance, fizzled by liquid guilt, dripping with saline regret.

Beauties, diminish their own worth, lost in suspended animation; rebuffed suitors of bland spinsters, dine on ashes, lest a bloody rapier drip with the fetid stench of duelled vengeance.

Emaciated digits clutch at images that paraded times, once so; the spectrum of life, sandwiched between the monochrome of their eidolons.

Sweet – hearted; infernally parted. Lips , that tasted ambrosia, chapped, and cracked; parched, from lack of her heavenly, florid purse. How could he need her so much?

Living inside a giant tear, imperfect secrets flow under burlywood skin. Does the world care for her champagne tresses, and velvet stare?

Violent storms thrash behind optic drizzle, never quenching her presence, still aflame with conflagrant visions; no two days the same, recalling :-


“ Koala clings, eucalyptus tree,

Yea, never, oh never, let go of me;

For where thou ends, and lassie, I start,

‘Twould take light-years, to break apart.

A million souls, couldn’t alter this view,

Nay, warriors, and demons shouldn’t steer me from you.

Unbreakable, now, thy full-bird Colonel,

Thou’ll keep thee safe, within my journal.”

* Music By : Earth, Wind & Fire *

      P.S. @HappyMikeWriter,

      I know you was only jesting about the ' bowing down ' thing, but in case some folks get the wrong idea, by way of disclaimer, and as is proper and fitting, one should only bow down before God Himself; neither His Angels or His trusted servants.

      Have a great week, man!

      Best Wishes,

      R.Q.

      Lol! ' The mind boggles, what's behind the goggles '. Thank you for such generosity in reading so many poetic verses, and am glad that you could glean and garner something from each one.

      Take care buddy, and don't let them grind you down.Guard your heart my friend, and how you think normally determines how you are as a man, and your thoughts are marvellous, going on the uplifting remarks you have posted on these Hubs.

      Hi Faith Reaper!

      I've been fortunate enough to date some girls who were so pretty, that if beauty Herself looked in the mirror, and saw one standing behind her, she would weep like the Angel Falls.

      Always a blessing having you fly by, and thank you so much for your kindness, which is just sheer class.

      Best wishes for an exciting weekend;

      R.Q.

      Thanks Flash. I figured it would be good - wouldn't want to turn into one of those vampires in your story :)

      Best wishes to you, and have a lovely weekend.

      Of course! A break is needed every now and then, R.Q! There is life out there, after all. :D Enjoy the sunshine!

      Yes, they're good. They do take quite a while to edit though - remember spending about seven hours on one of mine to get it just right.

      I might quit writing on HP for a little while WL, to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts, instead of writing about it, but still going to check in to see how folk are, and to see how you get on with your possibly, new career :)

      Yep. I'm still waiting for a follow up with HR and that's making me nervous. So I'm just focusing on making videos of my poems just to relax. :D
