Treasure Island

Almedia Knight Oliver


A Loving Partner


We found each other under
evening's orange horizon.
Hearts pulled by moon and
Swept up in the waves of time.
If ever a woman is happy in her man...
I'm she who, delights in calming your needs!

Sweet spring springs pretty flowers.
Solstice winter shares its gloom, yet
our love remain in bloom and its beauty
kept by summer's warm sun

Your words in 'your killing love'
are like flower heads in spring;
temperature slowly rising like morning's sun.
King cobra, I offer you love instead of cream
and commands you rise up close to
my heart, plant a kiss on my lips.
Take my life; death is mine.
you chose this hanging fruit,
blemishs and all my time.
Here! take this ripen berry
that's barely attached to
the vine.

I exhaled toxic air
to inhale pure love.
Bear with me in weakness
that I can stand up to my age.
This fruit is ripened and
falling humbly at your feet!
Dear, bear with me in weakness,
that I can stand up to my age.

Sitting in the park, on a gloomy fall evening, pondering this new found love, in the seasoned time of my life, and wondering if it's only for a season....

    1st blow..........We found each other in the / orange evening horizon
    2nd blow..........Yet our love is in bloom and its / Beauty kept by summer's warmth
    3rd blow...........Your love strikes me like a serpent's; / And send love-venom throughout
    4th blow............Now, take my life... death is mine.
    5th blow............Dear, bear with me in weakness / That I can stand up to my age.

    Heaven is where, don't know, but where heart is so................heaven can't be too far.

    LIVE AND LIVE BEYOND..............

    You chose this hanging fruit
    blemishs and all my time.
    Here! take this ripen berry
    that's barely attached to
    the vine.

    amazing poem, great imagery, a master craftsman weaving wicker baskets from strings of words.
    to hold Venus's drippings
    loved reading it...its a tenner no doubt.

    We found each other in the
    orange evening horizon
    Hearts tugged by moon
    and
    Swept up in the wave of time.

    I'm she who delights in calming his needs! .. ya it gives unique joy and feeling and one is prepared to give every thing at his/her command.....10

    Very natural, very delicate sentiments - one always nurtures within, but hesitates in expressing - out of shyness or out of fear.... Well said.

Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
