To Describe It In Words

To Describe It In Words

A Poem by Obbligato
"

An Attempt To Encapsulate That Feeling In Its Entirety

"
She’s that eternal sorceress
Who anoints me with the precious ointment extracted from her heart
Placing it on my head causing epiphanies
Revealing the true man in me
Now she raises me UP
A true resurrection
From the death of the old me
So how can I reply
To such a Butterfly
 
She’s that silent rain
That does not fall on your windowpane
But has its droplets drop on my crown
Those droplets cascade down my crown
Making me KING
Drenched I rise to my throne
The waves of her rain brought me here
So what can I say
To such a Mermaid
 
She’s that canvas
And I’m her Painter
So at midnight when we come together
We create a masterpiece
As I
Stroke
My paintbrush upon her
She’s my muse and my workstation
So what smile should I give
To this Mona Lisa

She’s that distant star
Who seduces me with her astronomy
As luminous lights form her hips
She attracts me with her constellation
As she has granted only me
With a telescope to view such beauty
Only I can wish upon a star
As a lone astronomer in this city
So what wish should I bestow
Upon a Virgo

Amazing words made the photo come alive. The description was very good. I had to read the poem a few times for the strong words and statements were outstanding.

Beautiful descriptions, and incredibly well written. The first read was astounding, after the second read the imagery really took on its own form.
Thanks for sharing.

Virgo's are very powerful woman. My older sister is a virgo, and I admire her greatly. I like how the woman in your poem uplifts you to your greatest potential, while simutaneously illustrating her strength as well. I love the last few lines about her being astronomy and attracting you with constellations. Instilling you with a telescope. A very unique analogy. Her being equal to astronomy shows the pedestal of respect you have for her and how awe-struck by her you really are. Astronomy is also a very in-depth science, that took genius's and years of study to comprehend. How honored you must feel to have the attention of such a beautiful, celestial soul.

An ode to the muse. Great use of metaphors and imagery. I'm not in the habit of criticizing poetry as I believe each write is a piece of one's soul to be appreciated. I really enjoyed this.
