~ Then There Was You ... ~

Updated on August 6, 2013

~ Then There Was You ... ~



Her radiant lamps, blaze of aquamarine;

Euphorically poised, to try fathom this scene.

Celestial stares, which must earnestly seek;

Their very next high, for the forthcoming week.


Rubescent, pert cheeks, manners awfully pleasant,

Flaunting proud, peacock tints, whilst she struts like a pheasant.

Never showing her true colours, just the latest edition,

Playing shrewd cat and mouse, has become a tradition.


A sweet, battered heart, veiled with latent menace;

From times when grim men, played their harsh, vengeful tennis.

Tricked her in love, hurt her deep down inside;

Mistreating her so, but for them, though, she cried.


She screams in the silence, and needs fair redress;

Or else people find, she could not care less.

Demands swift replies, to life's bitter unfairness;

Displays tactful, clever, astute, stone-cold awareness.

If none can be found, then my kind troubled dove,

Will only be hurting the ones that she loves.


But darl, can rely, on this heart as her home,

Whenever she's sad, and feeling alone.

If times turn you hard, and no friends can be found,

Then know that I'm here, and always around.


When tears come-a-knocking, and you feel oh so blue;

Tender woman, you'll know, just what you should do.

Just call upon me, and I'll make things anew,

For I'll love you so deeply, verily love you so true.

      You SO get it Faith Reaper....you were a niblet in the sixties? Wow! You are generous, exhibiting your daughter's photograph as your profile picture....still not convinced it is you :)Seemed like such an exciting time to be alive, and to be a teen around that exciting culture with such great music would have been a memorable experience; but I guess the eighties weren't so bad either, so all is not lost. :)

      Glad you liked the kaleidoscope vid, and happy to bring a wee bit of nostalgia your way.

      Thank you for your wonderful comments;

      Sincerely,

      R Q Dear brother were you reading my mail? I am listening to the video now and take me back. Wow, is what I must say. You poems are thought provoking. I have read many and will go back to comment. All of them really touched a part of me I was not sure what to write in comment. You are very perceptive to others emotions and very compassionate at that. I believe poetry really is an art. You have been blessed with a gift precious brother. I love your works RQ and I look forward to coming to visit.

      You obviously love writing Poetry. You are way published. Way to go Romeos. Keep em coming brother. I think your poetry gives many allot of hope.

      I am honored to follow you Romeos. May God Bless you in mighty ways. In Christ, Love Skye

      Lol! No Skye; I'll have to put it down to another ' Happy coincidence ', which seems to be happening more, and more recently. I'm so glad that there is something in there which you can take away, and be of some comfort or help on one level or another, and thank you kindly for your generosity, and encouragement, which does you enormous justice, and makes me proud to know of you.

      Blessing to you precious sister, and thanks again;

      In His Love,

      A winding narrative in poetic form. I hope the lady finds happiness soon.Full of tangible emotion and heroes. Excellent work.

      You are generous Anna, and I couldn't agree more - I hope this woman finds what she is looking for, and not waste her life down the avenues and alleyways of painful obscurity, with only confusion as her company. Some people just have to find their own answers the hard way, I suppose.

      Thank you, once again for your delightful presence.

      Sincerely,

      R.Q.
