Fling me back in oblivion
where I could paint you
with naked desires,
no eyes on them
Where you would smell
the fragrance on you
and know I have
stroked my brush again
and changed something
tiny, and impossible
for you to find
but never letting you be
the same
I would shroud a shade of you
with purple 
and love you until
I wouldn't remember 
what you really are beneath
Thats when I would start over
bottom up
to reshape, refactor,rearrange, 
my reasons of loving you

Read 3 pending posts. Good work always needs to be given due recognition. You deserve it. One who has a creative eye will always strive to do more and more. It is what art love within us demands. What a sweet way to express love! Well composed.

Take care

Now this one I must say, a really beautiful piece of work . I can see your desire dancing in every word that you picked from a wilderness of night blindedness . I grab that emotion however you reshape , rearrange.I simply love it .

A fresh look at a love poem caught between image and words, turned around in space and admired in all angles. Well done. Gay
