A Memorable Love Affair


Like
moths with candle light
sunflowers with the sun light
waves with the beach
an artist with the smile of Mona Liza
a movie buff with Marline Monroe
someone romancing with Italian pizza
I too had an affair
feeling love in the air
this lady of voluptuous charm
embraced me like a lover in the arm
dressed to kill, she taught me the basics
in colourful shapes, sizes and jackets
seducing me to feel, head to heel
dating me over coffee, breaking the seal
offering herself to be caressed
giving me pain, laughter, thrill and shiver
playing on my innocence
providing breath of life fast
initiating me to knowledge vast
I had an affair
with printed divas
at the world book fair.

    A beautiful poem....! Travelling all the way down to find out the object of your love, that tantalizing beauty who enamoured you, I came upon the rendezvous of your meetng place... the book fair and identified her to be the 'printed diva'! A poem describing a unique love affair! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

    i like the punch in the following line... and i must say you have a good hand to spell poetry...Like
    moths with candle light
    sunflowers with the sun light
    waves with the beach
    an artist with the smile of Mona Liza
    a movie buff with Marline Monroe
    someone romancing with Italian pizza
    I too had an affair
    feeling love in the air (Report) Reply
