UTOPIA LOST

Written by: delysia hendricks

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
