Yours to Discover

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

I would give you my heart wrapped up as a gift
Sprinkled with glitter and perfumed of rose
Arrange all the letters that spell out my love
To write you a note of calligraphed prose

Give me your hand and I’ll lead you away
Finding adventure in things that are new
Searching for treasure in things that are precious
Discovering it was always right there beside you

Kissing in the rain of a warm summer shower
Carving a heart in the bark of a tree
Lying in bed on a cool winter morning
Sharing a warmth meant for you and for me

I would give you my heart wrapped up as a gift
To unwrap and discover slowly in time
I will promise to love you with all that I am
If you promise that you will forever be mine.

what a beautiful poem Ana... I especially loved these lines:
"Give me your hand I'll lead you away"
"Kissing in the rain of a warm summer shower"
"I would give you my heart wrapped up as a gift/to unwrap and discover slowly in time"
your romantic side pours out in this poem, Ana... I have always wanted a love like this, they way it makes your heart beat, the feel of warmth knowing they are there.... I guess we all want this, but you Ana have allowed us to feel it, even if we never found it...

Absolutely lovely
But, why would you ever garnish such a beautiful heart?
Didn't we already talk about gilding Lilly's?

This is no way at all brought tears to my eyes.
At ALL.
Shut up, it's allergies.

I enjoyed this poem and you are welcome Ana.
I don't think anyone could read this without a pause and a wistful sigh at the end. Beautifully written words, perfect rhythm and such a vivid image painted in your words.

Ha! Yes! That's exactly what sort of inspired the poem! The car plates. :)
If I gave you my heart,
would you treat it with care?
Delicate,
but waiting for your touch.

Sorry, Ana.
Couldn't help myself.

"give me your hand and i will lead you away"

Brilliant to invite the reader into the poem with the author. This method always reminds reminds me of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (that can't be a bad thing). You do Rhyme so well and you cadence and song are well crafted (particularly the ABCB rhyme scheme). The slant rhyme in the final stanza, weather intended or not, is super classy.
