Laura

OBSEQUIES

Sexy you are my beautiful queen 

An hourglass figure you do possess 

Cloaked in a shimmering silver sheen

You are a regal sight I must confess!

 

There’s a void within you?

Come hither you command

Enticing me to fill that void

I am compelled to answer your demand!

 

I am ready to inhabit your sacred chamber 

Yes, my queen, I am your bait 

I am ready to fill that empty space

I am ready to embrace my fate!

 

My shimmering queen 

You are my urn

You are the prize

For whom I burn!

 

With my precious dust your void is filled!

Once the obsequies are complete

On the Royal Mantle we will sit.

Oh queen of mine, we’re finally asleep!

    Great read Laura

  • Laura

    Thank you for the read
    and comment, Michael!
    It took me a while to write
    this one. Very painful
    and difficult...but I needed to!

    GRAZIE LAURA ~ UNA BELLA POEMA
    D'AMORE FRUSTRADO ? I can understand why it was painful to write ! The ANGST of unavailable LOVE is the worst of all ANGSTS Baci e Abbracci e Amore per Tu SOLO ~ BRIAN XOXOX

    • Laura

      Mio Caro Amico BRIAN...
      Grazie!
      Veramente è stato lui il
      FRUSTRATO!
      This was a difficult write because I wasn’t able to help him!
      I felt his frustration! I felt
      his pain! I hope he’s at
      peace now! I cannot dwell
      on his passing! It has
      become unhealthy! I was
      sinking in a deep depression!
      So unhealthy for me and
      my family! I must move on
      and live in the now!
      Un Abbraccio e Baci ...
      ~Laura~

      Very well written, Laura!
      'I am your bait' made me thing that hopefully she is not fishing, otherwise I would be a worm!

    • Laura

      Fred,
      I appreciate your read
      and comments! Thank you!
      On a lighter note, believe me, you wouldn’t want to beTHAT WORM!!! There’s much more that meets the eye in that writing!

    • Joe Dawson

      If only we could put right all the wrongs in love it would be a good days work, but alas it is not to be and we must suffer love for what it is: an experience gathering exercise worth every teardrop, every heartache and every happy ending. Well done Laura. Joe

      • Laura

      • Santita

        Wow, the metaphors here are clever; dark and veiled with a thin sheath of mystery. Your imagery paints a vivid picture "Cloaked in a shimmering silver sheen", great write, Laura!

      • Maxine Smith

        So cleverly written Laura, your metaphors are dynamite, I could learn so much from you. A brilliant job hunny.

        • Laura

          Thank you, my sweet Maxine!❤️
          We must be on the same wavelength today! I appreciate your visit and your generous comments!

          Hugs 🤗

            My immediate thought was of a male bee, willing to sacrifice himself for the one to be with the Queen bee.

            And then I read your replies and the reason for this poem

          • Neville

            whether lost, or otherwise unobtainable & for whatever reason, it is going to hurt...
            I did enjoy this poem Laura, so why do I feel as though I should be apologising...... Neville

            • Laura

              Interesting and insightful comments!
              Curious to know, if you care to share,...
              “Why do you feel as though” you “should be apologizing”?

              • Neville

                maybe for enjoying a sad poem, presumably based on someones experience of sadness and consternation......

                Neville
