When she falls

art-by-wangjie-li

 

When She Falls

 

She has that look.

Something in the eyes.

In the line of her nose.

The tilt of her chin.

The set of her jaw.

She is bright, brave and assured.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

She has that smile.

Something in the curve.

In the line of her mouth,

The shape of her lips.

The show of her teeth.

She is cool, collected and poised.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

She has that way.

Something in the words.

In the sweep of her thoughts.

The pride in her voice,

The ice in her veins,

She is proud, aloof and secure.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

Oh, she will fall.

Minor Tragedy

 

On a human scale

it was a very

minor tragedy.

 

After all

no one was maimed

or tortured

or raped

or killed.

 

No one was

made homeless

without food

or shelter

or country.

 

No one was lost

forever

at sea.

 

On a human scale

it was a very

minor tragedy.

 

Just two lovers

two hearts

two minds

two bodies

two souls

once joined

coming adrift.

 

But it still

hurt like fuck.

She makes my day

 

There are some songs which I just love.

This is one of them. I can’t explain it, can’t define it. I just love it. Perhaps because it is beautifully crafted with a gorgeous lyric. Perhaps because his voice is rich and wonderful. Perhaps because it catches the way one feels when utterly enchanted by someone.

I also guarantee if you listen to it three or four times you just cannot get it out of your head.

It is by the late Robert Palmer (he sadly died young in 2003), an English singer/songwriter. It is from his album Heavy Nova released in 1988. It is a reasonably good album with a couple of other stand out tracks.

Robert Palmer had wide musical tastes and was responsible for the iconic Addicted to Love song/video which Shania Twain later based her Feel Like a woman video.

Anyway. I sing this song when I am happy in a certain way.

 

By the way, this was another of my ‘songs I like but you might not know’ posts.

Something for her

LETIZIA A LA SIESTA

She wishes he would write something for her.

A fantasy of endless, velvet, star-filled skies.

Of a wild, round, luminous moon hanging like a silver lantern. Of a warm, perfumed breeze stroking her hair and tugging gently at her dress.

Of the distant strains of a yearning, lone violin fading and rising through the whispering trees.

Of his hands releasing the pale silk gown from her eloquent shoulders, and it running off her naked body like a caress and falling with a sigh at her feet.

Of her perfect, dangerous, wondrous curves laid out by him on a cool, crisp white linen sheet. Of her arms and legs stretched wide. Of his tongue, his lips, his fingers over every inch of her tingling skin, upon her sensual mouth, her exquisite breasts, and her urgent, swollen, fragrant sex.

Of him filling her with pleasure, with joy, and with himself.

In every way.

.

She wishes he would write something for her.

He just has.

I wrote and posted this three years ago, and since. Definitely the Romantic side of RD. I am rather fond of it. I hope readers do not mind the repeat

Summer Dress

 

I see you

in a summer dress.

Thin straps on elegant shoulders. Your breasts captured sweetly. The curve of your hips caressed. Your arms and legs beautifully bare.

The hem high on your thighs.

Your hair is caught and stroked by the soft, warm breeze. Your skin is kissed by the friendly sun.

Your gorgeous eyes are shining.

Your smile is heavenly.

Yet you are shy

as the dress falls

like a cotton sea

at your feet.

Light

 

There is

no golden sunlight

no silver moonlight

no glittering starlight

no following spotlight

no revealing headlight

no flickering strobe light

no intense searchlight

no romantic candlelight

more illuminating

more compelling

more beautiful

than your light.

Days

 

There will always be

good days

bad days

joyful days

sad days

wild days

dark days

quiet days

golden days

but they will never

be the same

as the days

with you.
