falling on them

falling on them

A Poem by Shirlena
"

from a movie

"

followed
frames of a
couple in momentum

advancing


twisted
butterscotch
cocoa parfait sleeves
each enraptured
with the
others contact


watching 

inching clutches
mind trembling
recalling when
last I was
held as if
vying escape


confidential agent
for their
public tete' te tete'
halo with irises
encompassing fire
an invasion
jealous while admiring


forwards
backwards
criss cross sideways
everything could muster
training poker face


it was only a movie
girl singing
background

for jone-sing 
verse most rewound
 "Love Fell on Them"

crushing the voyeur...
trying not to be read

Very impressionistic, I like the experiment of style. Evocative in its own right. More insight into the quantum narrative of your soul, very good.

Okay, first off, let me say, love the move to a different font, much more pleasant to read. And this is an excellent poem, in form, and in imagery, content, everything.

Thank you sweet KL.
I was going to say you sound like a voyeur but then you finished with that line....when we see those PDA's we can't help but think or our own intimations, 'cocoa parfait sleeve'...love it!

"Love fell on them"... sometimes that's exactly what happens. Like I always say... though we look for love, it's love that must find us. Great write, Shirlena.
