Maxine Smith

An idea of love


To be seen

As first violet flowers of spring


To be heard

As Robins and BlackBirds chime and sing


To be touched

As the sun radiates over my skin


To be devoured

To play upon the edge of sin


  • Goldfinch60

    To be loved
    As the words flow over the page

                  Lovely words expressed at a time in your life when the inner beauty of you is exposed for appreciation and dare i say attraction.... as in a beautiful flower blossoming.
                  Wholesome indeed but a word of warning for predators lurk in even the most poetic places.
                  You have come a long way in life and achieved much. Along the way to today you have gained values, worth and self respect. Guard them well, for to trade them for anything or anyone could be to one day find yourself lost.
                  Take care and enjoy life.

                  • Maxine Smith

                    Thank you for sharing your kind words and concerns.

                    I appreciate it.

                  • Michael Edwards

                    And may you be seen, heard, touched, and devoured - - nothing less than you deserve - and it will come.

                    • Maxine Smith

                      A girl can only dream.

                      Although I have visions of me remaining alone and filling my void with lots of cats .... lol
