you, dear

you, dear were my depraved, inelegant swan. envisioned in the moonlight - romanticized, wearing your cheap, red lipstick - and desperate to ravish me. if you did not love me the succulent fruit upon lip and breast would diminish here and now. i said, what man is without his mistress, and you smiled, exposing those crooked teeth. i love you, much more than i loved you then. you seem to have adopted the image of an ill bird, and in my dreams misery has approached you, shackled you; condemned you to love a furious man. i am sorry i could not endure with you, the tempestuous love for beauty. i did not wish to search for you, because i feared that you might be more appealing with those poignant bruises upon your face, declaring your mistake. i remember, in the morning, your breath was like a toxic thunder, as you prepared your quivering lips to kiss me, i did not know i loved you then, but i love you now. and when daylight breaks through the aperture of the night, my lovely sin, i will perish, because even now i love your transparent shadow. the earth, too, is harsh to me on burning sunlit mornings - and i love you today, much more than i loved you then. and only on this day i have been told by the wind that you are alive and well, but not happy.

    I kid you not when I say that to me this is a perfect pen.. Then... dare I use such a big word? Yup whyever not... The juxtoposion balance sends one on a helter-skelter ride of the ups and downs of love, disappointment, acceptance and nostalgia, all wrapped in the sordid truth. Cheap red lipstick, yellow teeth, shackled and condemned. The last four lines are such a pitious tie of life and words... Your newest fan. Karen

    Welcome to poetry Soup, Lebedyenko! If you are from Russia, please read my poem, The Czar's Marbleized Ceramic Jar. " I have loved reading your exceptional poetry. Furious love is a sure curse, but compassion and love can break the spell. She may be not happy by bearing your baby, but she smiles when you mention the importance of being her man. Your poem emanates much passion, violence and yet your love for her still lives. Best wishes for the New Year. Peace and Love, Andrew.
