* Note To Self *

~ Sun Kissed ~


Where’st moribund laughter,

Crowds with thorns,

Which cradle mirth,

‘Mongst hope, forlorn;

Whens’t whittled time,

Soon knells a toll,

For better finds,

Devoid of droll.


Defined, refined,

Good ‘morrow, divined,

By seers of old, and

Augurs, blind;

Entrails, supined by haruspex,

Undines, designed, via shadowed hex,

Of pills and potions,

Magic motions,

Embracing nought, but

False devotions;


She laughs, at all

These courtly players,

Robed pontifex,

Conclaved soothsayers.

Where happiness flew,

They cannot tell,

If host in heaven, or

Bowels of hell.


Her hide and seek,

May leave one weak,

Though, there she flows,

Amongst the meek.


Encrypted scripts,

Her absence leaves,

Cold pillaged crypt, which

All men grieve.

Bequeathing thoughts

Of dissonance,

Slain memories, of

Her innocence.


Now, there it blows,

Across the sea,

‘Twill port thy heart,

From thou, to thee;

She’ll bear good tidings,

Clear to view, then'st

In the winds,

Breathe, “ I love you.”

      To reach a person's soul, and leave it in a better state than that in which it was found, as you know Anna, is a prime goal for any positive writer.

      Have a healthy, and wealthy week. :)

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      Thank you. Although it is your skill as a writer; and not your reader that makes it so in depth when reading your writing. You reach out to the soul.

      It took over an hour-and-a-half to construct properly, so I can't expect you to understand it straightaway.

      If you treat it as you would a fine wine, you might get more out of it.

      Okay, I think I was on the right path, but of course you just explained it so wonderfully, I think it's worthy for another read now! So there is definitely an element of anguish here.

      I think I can take it from here :D

      I sure hope that you don't have to, for your sake.

      It's about the importance which happiness brings, and how she cannot be chased, no matter who the protagonist may be;she alights upon whom she sees fit, leaves the bitter memory of her absence by the unworthy, and goes where she pleases.

      There is much more, but I'll leave that to the reader.

      Thank you doll face, for your wonderful comments.

      Yours Truly,

      R.Q.

      Yeah, no kidding... want to know what's even funnier? I refreshed the page after I read it, but before I left a comment... you know, to see if you'd been here or not *The coast is clear* .... I write up my little comment and submit, *Pooooof! There's writinglover!* ha ha

      I wasn't given the nickname "The Flash" for nothing, Cat! LOL!

      R.Q.

      Can you convert seconds into years? :D

      Seriously though, this is a tough piece for me, I think I'll be returning to read it again, like one of those movies you understand more after watching a second time... lol, what can I say, your words are something else! Why did I get the feeling of bitterness throughout until the end? Is that how it goes or do I need to assault google? lol Anyway, it's beautiful as they all are.

      Yours Truly,

      Cat

      Okay.... seriously, writinglover just appeared out of nowhere! lol :D

      Fantastic as usual, R.Q! Kind of morbid in the beginning but it seems to lighten at the end which is wonderful! Loved it and voted it up!
