Treasure Island

Stevie Taite

Cryptic Lipstick


Some poems are simplistic
They don't wear cryptic
lipstick
They never try to force it
If the words don't fit their corset
They may don a facade
But they never try too hard!
They're not as flat as pancakes
They are natural and are not fakes
Some work it trips and crashes
If it's wearing false eyelashes
'up do's ' can look pretentious
Wear it messy, be adventurous
It would lose all of its passion
If all poems followed fashion
Whether free flow, prose or rhyme
Wear it your way, it's looks fine

    Very nice-I love messy poems! The heart is messy and if a poem is a reflection of the heart than it should be too. This reminds me to let my hair down, loose and undone. (Report) Reply

    I've always preferred the natural look, the natural feel of free form verse-
    of fashion and makeup, i don't make a fuss, your hair is fine, .and.no, you don't look a mess.
    Ah, those shoes with that dress, a little less rouge, that lipstick's nice, and it goes with your purse.
    I can be honest and open with what you got on...You're beautiful in anything you wear,
    or put on.
    But I preferr your words naked and raw...To rhyme, or not to rhyme?
    I simply don't care.
    Your Ink has captured my heart and invaded my soul-
    Write on Stivie Taite! You're on such a Roll.

    l hate brick house poems
    predictive rhyme
    poems that always end on time
    poems that have no cares
    that are just going nowhere
    poems of swollen hearts
    where heros fall
    there now my list cpmplete I think I got Them All (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
