Cooking for you


if I had to cooking for you
first I have to think of you

and make you special to me

but damn....expectations....


you will be my first special dish
in years.....


I would not get through the kitchen
there....oh! Just a excuse....

but i'll be at the dining room
waiting for you....


i would open the door

with snacks and wine and one heart so tight

and a breath so contain displayed on my face

that you'll smile....

and introduced you in my life....
and a beautiful table to delight

two candles, the old china
two glasses of wine

~ could be a Chablis~
the only one I like
as you i think....


I would ask you to choose the music
and maybe we dance

in a trance....


one of the 70 or 80



but...

i dont know if is because you are so close to me

your scent... all is new in you...

i'll poured so much salt,


or
because you are so beautiful on this suit
that the shrimp, will be cremated



i dont know....

better we dance and enjoy

this smoke.... could be our mist
fogged eyes, cold hands, touching for the first time
beating heart, blush on my face....


anyway


love for tonight it is not so bad is not?
salted and burned
not...not so bad

    heart so tight .........this is really 'nice'.

    that the shrimp, will be cremated ..........if this means what i think it means [and i plan to spend more time on this poem another day, giving 'helpful suggestions' as i am wont to do for some, sometimes], i REALLY like it. [ i NEVER use the word wont! ]

    Poetheart M., i am not familiar with 'having coke with you' and i probably won't bother checking on it. but i am grateful to F.O. for the inspiration given to you.
    as always, the english is a bit rough in spots..............so what? but i may give you some advice later, as i already said.
    ALSO, as always (i think) i have enjoyed your style here VERY much. it is kind of like watching a movie unfold, nicely. [there i go with nice again; well, i could say worse things! ] i wonder how many readers (mostly men probably) wish they were the one coming to your door for dinner, dancing, and? oh yeah, DVDs.

    thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply

    To hell with the shrimp... let them burn. We'll order Chinese take-out later, but for now... and for a while longer... we will dance! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
