A Love Story

A Love Story

A Poem by ShantaeMarlinda
"

A poem I wrote for my most recent ex. I still mean & feel every word of it. Despite the fact that it makes me sad, it's still one of my favorite pieces. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

"

 

 

 

The scene changes, the light dims.
The moon sneaks a peek in my room as the night spills in.
Black and blue cower in the corners
...And I find you.

There's a glimmer, a twinkle in my eye as I watch you.
On the ceiling, the walls, the floor, the four blades spinning on my fan.
I see your face there again and again.
I drape myself in the thought of you.

Silence whispers sweet everything's in my ear.
Your name dances on the tip of my tongue.
12 a.m blows by to steal a kiss from my cheek,
and the warm breeze is reminiscent of your lips against my skin.
I can almost feel you.

Consumed in all that is you. How could I not be?
Our names are written in the night,
Glazed across the darken skies and burned into daybreak's sunlight

" Tae & Cis ♥ "

Look above! That's what you'll find.

Sublime is what this is about...the way you say the words...like you're in the moment...suspended and nothing else matters except what you are writing down in words...as you go about the lines of this verse...and then in the end you give him a hint to look up also and have a glimpse of the awe your feeling in the bliss...

I love how you use your words.
They arent words you normaly hear but they work so perfectly.
Brilliant yet again.
You'll have to send me a read request every time you post something.
I'd love to read more and possibly write more for this review.
But one of my girls needs their pink washed out of their hair.
Lovely read.
