~Gentle Quiver

~Gentle Quiver

A Poem by Frieda P

on my mind...


...and then I paused in the moment 
                          to devour the thought

 always a gentle quiver on my mind
like a good book, I never want it to end

   we closed our chapter with no song or rhyme
prologue memories were steamy and sultry
   moonlight smiles were tender rapture

introductions to dreamy blissful intensity
  intentions of our prelude to make it to the finale

as fairy tales go there was no happy ending
         our final chapter closed without a kiss

still, when I think of you in quiet moments
you are always a gentle quiver in my mind

I simply love how you do love, or at least love of before, in this case. Your words always have a certain silkiness to them, smoothly flowing across our eyes in alluring and sensuous stanzas. It is really hard for me to put my finger on the correct words to describe your style of writing except to say...this is definitely a Frieda. Amazing my friend.

It's very nice to have good remembrance of past loves. Can't really say that I'm in the same position, but it is definitely a beautiful thing. This was so well written, Frieda, your vocabulary and poetic skills are ones to be envied. :)

I guess I need to start getting to your work earlier love...47 reviews on 417 views doesn't leave me with a whole lot to say that hasn't already been said. Everyone knows how brilliant a writer you are, and there are only so many ways that it can be worded ;P I loved the title and how you utitlized it through the piece. And anything that equates a book with romance is bound to find its way to my heart. Beautiful work Mrs. R :)

Dang Frieda, soft and sultry. Just when I think I can completely give up those little 'thought' moments I get on here and read something like this and my head goes... Hmmm, I think I'll delve into a little daydream for a moment. Thanks!
"we closed our chapter with no song or rhyme" - perfect line for an ending with no ending

Also, that last stanza is superb! Damn those quivers! Lol... Awesome poem, Frieda :)

If you want to know me, read my poetry, it's all in there. I am a mother of three sons (my finest moments) a sister, a survivor and a little bit crazy. I lost my beloved sister to suicide, so you'll.. more..
