I got your message

65 minutes reduced to 120 seconds

Bright lit room
White glossy tone with flowery curtains
Upon window's darkened vision

Your radiance emanated in celebratory gesture
As my eyes fell in love
All over again

But your smiles were too bright to see me cry
Dry heaving sadness gasp

As I looked down...I became the great
Pretender

The smile pretender

You wore a dark blue blouse, w/body-fitting jeans
Tall, plus-size model stature
My walking fantasy

Dark brown locks of joy slow danced upon flesh that

I

No longer embraced

You had something to tell me
"I'm getting married to a man who called me, sexy.
We work together in the same building, so everybody knows."

Spanish music behind the scenes
Your witty humor against song
Crackin' my smile within sadness pores

Showing me blank invitations
As I leaned in, inhaling this broken emptiness
Writing out words with her voice
My gentle grin, the eraser

Tears in Cold War mode

Heart enunciating disconnection bliss

"This wasn't how I wanted to see you again"

As satin comforter tries to soften my falling
Falling...into true love's innocence

The same comforter that covered those tracks
Asphalt scarred remnants from the bus you threw me under

"I always wanted you to wake me from my sleep
But not like this"

You became my dream, come true
Becoming dream again
In 120 seconds

...

He may have called you "sexy" with words
But I called you "beautiful" with heart

Yet you will never value how deep it was

Well, at least you can rest assured
That I got your message

    Ahhh, this classic poem. =D You're way, way too kind. This was a true situation that occurred some years ago. In any case, I'm really glad you did too. :) Thank you, Bindu!

    Thankfully, it was a dream. But, damn it still hurt like hell when I woke up. Thank you so much, Juliet.

    I thought I'd come see your first post ever and WOW, this is one I really love. Great romantic poems are the best kind. Sorry for your loss. But I think it was she that had the greater loss in the end.

    This is very well written and expressed. Is that the same thing? ;} Should we get technical or what ;} He may have called you "sexy" with words. But I called you "beautiful" with heart,,, awesome line there ;} maybe she did you a favor, being superficial and all. you have a great day ;}

    You continue to impress with your work. I especially loved these two lines "He may have called you sexy with words, but I called you beautiful with heart"... WOW! I obviously don't know the extent of what happened in the relationship, so I don't exactly have room to talk... but it did seem that she coming by just to say that... well it sounded like she just wished to put a thorn in your side, adding to insult to injury (and that's just not right)... This reader got YOUR message...

    Believe it or not, this writing was based off a dream I had. So, it's all true. But, some things were just the dream, some things actually happened. Many thanks, Tim! I'm very grateful. :)

    Drake....this is awesome! Amazing tribute to the strength and endurance of true love. Wow! The bit about sexy and beautiful is so touching. I'm so glad I read this. I've written something about the enduring nature of love. "The Heart's Dead are Never Buried." Incredible write....a 7!

    The fact that you even looked at this piece (near the bottom of my list, posted a few years ago) & commented on it, is super flattering. I'll have a look at that writing of yours. Thanks so much! :)

    So sad, such depth of feelings how devastating that the recipient does not reciprocate, such intensity so needs to be embraced with open arms and fly to the stars.
