UTOPIA LOST

True love lost direction
when bloomed my affection
for you, who magically weave word
decidedly smitten
by your comic verse written
my long-dead emotions were stirred

Chats online
yours and mine
the order of the day
word-sparring and witticism 
rhyming and rhythm
intoxicating;  who needs rosé?

By poetry joined
rich phrases we coined
muuuchly our lives intertwined
o'er miles merged our aura
with a burning urge for a 
naked horizontal align

When in waltzed a skirt
you hit pay dirt
a writer within her own right 
my utopia thwarted
firm resolve faltered 
my love remains steadfast despite

    The hard knocks of life, tell you what Licia, this is a wonderful piece of work, both moving and explaining, I don't do chatting but I've always known how words can overcome almost any obstacle. Love this. Take care, Richard

    Delysia, Didn't your mother ever teach you to never fall in love with poets? We're a fickle bunch of dreamers! You need to find some rich guy who's down to earth instead of having his head up in the clouds like some of us. (Well, like me, anyway:) PS: This was a sadder read the second time around. I'm beginning to feel your heart beat. And keep smiling - Mr. Right is bound to show up sooner or later:) Cheers, Terry

    "D": I owe you ONE BIG FAT THANKS A MILLION for your recent comment on "Thinking Myself Unborn." As good as I (humbly) thought it was myself, THIS poem, Utopia Lost, puts me back in the basement of poetry once again. It's quite simply BEAUTIFULLY written and I bow to your exquisite use of language. Kudos - Terry
