FREE WRITING

6
o, an ode i sing to whom 
       my words will fill thy chest
                   and wrap its ivory fingers around your heart

thus etching it
    with the watermark of my love. 


     perhaps my words will spark your
       desire and together we will lay in 
          a bedful of roses, their 
                      silky lips will whisper 
                             our names
                                 dewy and soft 
                                   they will
                                     cling to our 
                                       bodies 
                                      and mark us
                                          until the
                                               day 
                                                 we
                                                 reach
                                                 our 
                                                  graves
                                                   thin
                                                    blue 
                                                     cords
                                                        atrophied
                                                           in our
                                                            skeletons
                                                              and sink in  
                                                               our ribs.

    Ah, my 100th follower. You hold a very dear place in my heart and I want to say thank you to you. You helped me reach that milestone and for that I'll personally extend my gratitude to you. Your support and kindness means so much and I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me. You have no idea how indescribably happy it has made me and how much it has encouraged me to become a better writer. To think that you would take the time to stop and read my work means the world to me and to think that you'd follow me for it too--I just have no words. You've given me the confidence in being a writer and I am eternally grateful for that. And so, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
    (Also, I'm doing a dust jacket, so if you have any questions, send them my way!)

    Ahh the flow of this is so intricately woven and I absolutely adore it. And the cascading words! There's something about that waterfall of words that gives this piece so much depth and sweetness to it. Your imagery is spot on too! There's such a loveliness in it and it's so tranquil and serene. It's all written beautifully, and you say it doesn't make sense, but reading it just made it click so beautifully in my mind. Something about it just made sense and gosh that understanding illuminated the whole poem in such an indescribable beautiful way.
    "thus etching it
    with the watermark of my love. "
    I love that so much that I just have no words. There's something about it that makes me smile and its imagery is just so vivid that I cannot help but swoon over it. There's so much here and I can't help but be in awe of all of it. Delightfully beautiful piece!

    Wow, this is amazing! I love the Old English in it. I agree with anemoia & lattes, "it doesn't have to make sense to be soothing and magical." Love it!
    Replying: Aw, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it :). And you're definitely a poetess, too XD.
