A final letter from the heart my love

A final letter from the heart my love You sat in Vermeer’s room, maid by side; As daylight positioned at your writing place, Decanted through the stained glass view- Where she did stand; there; observing Those that came and went. Your quill did match your heart that morn’ For it beat your breasts with all your love As the busy conquests drew to a close. Waiting there, as long as those drapes hung, That very room where once, you tasted intimacy- While others found Moses; and looking on. Your seal remains floored reminding your maid That her ways were mere pacifiers- those days; Such an amusing and sweet thing she was. And of your meeting place? She did ready, While you napped, that afternoon slipped by, As your Alfred and Francesca stole away; and you? Gathered yourself, returning and only keeping diary; Of thoughts, moments in time, betrayed in ways Similar to those your maid witnessed as you wrote; For nothing is ever as ordinary as that painted, In a room Vermeer visited with his brush.
