Dust Where There Once Was Light

Dust Where There Once Was Light

A Poem by The Waterlily Pad
"

This is part one of my inspiration for historical queens who had fell under helpless young love; this is for you Mahidevran sultan, Katherine of Aragon, Queen Castile etc :)

"
A rose has bloomed,
Petals all rich and deep in the shades of red,
Thick stem with lively colour as green ink
A music in all expressions
Of art.
Gracefully sealed with but three notes 
Of my ballad-
Your scarlet letter written with your own pen.

I had believed in fantasy-
for a moment in my reckless life.
Who had needed true love?
If my love had all it's spice?
Shhh... a silent secret within us two
My harp playing your poet's tune.
"My celestina, I, forevermore no king,
I bow to you as a humble servant,
To hear you melodically sing"
Just so softly.


Lull me with the words you speak,
Touch me so ever tenderly,
Experience me as so you dare to seek.
Extravagant depths of love
In all such colours.
It's hasty notes in rhythm 
Your everlasting scarlet letter.


Teenage dreams enveloping a mind of what we call now;
Common sense.

Water, after reading the review you had recently made on one of my poems I was eager to discover your passion as well. I am glad I did. I chose this poem at first because the title itself spoke to me. After reading it I felt warm and content. This poem titillates all the senses. As all art is open to interpretation I construe this to be about a heartsick muse. Lull me with the words you speak, Touch me so ever tenderly, Experience me as so you dare to seek. Extravagant depths of love In all such colours. It's hasty notes in rhythm Your everlasting scarlet letter. This is lovely. It fascinates me how there are so many great poets on here, unknown, but there is no home for the modern poet. This is our home. I'm happy to be sharing it with you.
