verb

lay me down and call me mother
wake me up when i am dead
pull the other one my darling
watch me turn a crimson red
it is time that we were leaving
for the halls and hearths of home
seldom have we been so lordly
since we walked the streets of rome
but of course i know your secrets
i wrote the book on how to scry
in the course of but one moment
how could we see eye to eye
let me hold your furry paw dear
in the rues of old bordeaux
where the nights of sweet debauchery
are all we need or want to know
i will never be so lonesome
as that time before we met
curses on that passing moment
that brings with it regret
life is hard for those who need it
harder still for those that pray
cordons drawn around the crypt are
where i think we’re meant to stay
shallow breaths are taken slowly
our hearts lie on the plate
i would sing to you of customs
that were old before this date
seperate but still together
all the while i hold you tight
put your favourite verb here darling
and we’ll do it every night

    I really liked this poem and the last 4 lines are the best..so the verb I will leave is..”LOVE” 😀 😀 Also..this makes for a great short story! 😀

  2. I don’t have a verb, but a noun: Happiness. I have been thinking about you and your poems and realized I haven’t seen you and damommza for a long time on Cheezland or anywhere else (not that I’m going places anymore that much), so on a whim I clicked your name on the first Cheezland LOL prysma posted and there you are. I am happy to see you two, truly happy.

    • And I am happy to see you too 😀

      I visit cheezland most days, but haven’t commented in a long time.

      I don’t always know if someone has commented here, WordPress can be a bit erratic in letting me know, but I will see all messages, at some point 😀
