An Admission Of Affection


I knew the moment I laid my eyes on you
That you were an archetype of a demi-goddess
As my giant frame was spellbound
To your bespectacled visage
Even now my mind recollects like yesterday
The bony edifices of your lower arm, even your twin palms
Typing effortlessly on a laptop keyboard
Softly veiled by your tanned bamboo skin
With a fuzzy undergrowth
Gently combed by the monsoonal breeze
You visage glowed like the summer sun
Dazzling in her infective glow
Embellished with a pair of semi-oriental eyes
And a coy hesitant smile
That slithered to your slender aesthetic lips
You were a mannequin of perfection
The heavenly muse that spawned the beauty of Eve
The queen of the Amazons that held her bow
Between her twin sensuous breasts
An entombed succulence that effortlessly lifts
From her lithe athletic frame
With a subtle jiggle that ripples like a gentle tide of flesh
Your beauty lingers on in my memory
A perpetual echo that fills me and empties me simultaneously
I don’t love you, I know I don’t……….
But I’m hoping so much fate summons
To unite our destinies
Hoping for an opening
To fall head over heels in love with you………..
Now and forever

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
