Best Delysia Hendricks Poems

+ Fav Poet


Dine a la carte
with my secret sweetheart
a half dozen roses
in differing poses
champagne glass in hand
soft notes from the band

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter

eyes locked in stare
romance in the air
emotions a-brew
old blending with new
eyelids a-fluttering
to whispered sweet nothings

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter

Love ballad dancing
and sensuous prancing
a oneness of feeling
and merging of being
open-eyed nose-meet
wings on the feet

vows ever after
sweet smiles and laughter

Instead we are pained
to outsiders chained
with emptiness fraught
our love counts for naught 
mere love poems writ
twixt two lovers smit’

no vows ever after
sweet smiles or laughter

    Ahh you return, I have just seen your smile in the pic parade Licia and had to come and say welcome back. Now, this poem is a corker, You led me on with this right to the end, and those last two lines are crushing. Great write. Take care, Richard.

    This is awesome and sad. I'm faving this, my dear. I don't know how you managed to take us from the scene of true love to the harsh reality of forbidden love with such a beautiful rhythm. Just like the dance you were writing about. Life! Lovely, my dear...lovely write. BTW...thanks for going through my pics and for the lovely comment about my daughter. Of course, I agree, but then I am biased! :)
