Undesirable Reality [Collaboration with Karl Wild]

by silvershoes   Apr 7, 2007

In a world sinister and bleak,
Loneliness finds me contemplating,
The endless gentle words you speak,
Shift the gloomy night; elating.

I seize shelter in your whisper,
Tranquility in your stunning smile,
With your persuasion, I defer,
Each moment spent; worthwhile.

Captivated by your resonating verve,
In your grasp, I feel security,
Immeasurable love, you deserve,
A bond overflowing with purity.

Firm hands, yet soft and tender,
Caress one another; sensual bliss,
To your oceanic eyes, I surrender,
And melt, weakened by a kiss.

Enthralled in the sweetest embrace,
This dream spins from my vision,
Undesirable reality steps in its place,
Contemptuous truth in derision.

In a world sinister and bleak,
Morning finds me contemplating,
An everlasting dream I seek,
Irrefutable romance, never fading.

    What a lovely poem this is. A seamless collaboration that has a dreamy and soft feel to it that's almost calming to read.
    Lovely, unforced rhyme that obvious effort has been put into - lots of two/three syllable rhyming words that give the poem a fresh feel.
    Excellent - I really enjoyed this.
    All the very best,

    ^This is actually the first collaboration I've read here, and I must confirm, it is quite excellent :).

    You've explored love in immense detail and the usage of strong adjectives and addictive rhyme has formulated a doubtlessly unique piece. Brilliant use of imagery throughout the piece.
    I would comment further but my head is dead. Nonetheless, good stuff, mate :).
