The Lizard!


Nor needed to be so beautiful as well
or thin eyes
that comes with attraction redemptive

nor deserved kisses so dry
or drown you in my rivulet
like lizard
~resting your lips upon mine~

or away so away
~there's no needed to be~

where has not warm arms

~a jar ~

like my windows and doors
just covets hugs


bathed in the sun

as a lizard, with colors in disguise

resting you and me

    Love can be a strange thing a beautiful thing and a hard thing.
    But we all get it in the end. The only thin is sometimes we can't
    choose who we fall in love with. (Report) Reply

    was this lizard a dragon hoarding his treasure from would be theives?
    Perhaps the sun soaked reptile lay in repose just waiting in disguise.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
