* Because You'Re Mine, I Walk The Line. (Sorry Johnny. R.I P.) - Poem by Esra Sloblock

Unerring perambulation.
The infinite shining path
Is awash with surges
Of mellifluous ardour.
Onwards.

Oh, Tempest,
Come to me with all you have.
Burden me
With your angst,
Your fear,
Your demons.
Then prepare to see them slain.

It is I who choose
To enter the arena.
It is I who enter
Armed to the teeth.
Singular determination
And tungsten spirit
Guarantee my victory.

The unity
Of the entity
Is swayed by nought.
Dark forces be blinded
By the brilliance of our love.
Stack your carcasses behind us
And observe
As we swan dive
From the brows of vanquished ogres.

For I, and we, are forces to behold.

    'Unerring perambulation / mellifluous ardour / tungsten spirit' Are you kidding me with this vernacular? Did you ever attend the G. W. Gunn Academy for higher learning? : >) 'As we swan dive / From the brows of vanquished ogres' are my favourited lines, but the piece is resplendent in its entirety. A stellar accomplishment Mr. Sloblock!

    Kudos,

    Greg

    I had to read this again... if only to get the word 'mellifuous' in context.

    Mellif you me, melllif me you. And so forth.

    I love you. t xx

    Forsooth noble swain perchance to dream.Is that a guiding light I see before me? Nay a shaft of light, in truth a tribute to beauty that knows no bounds.
    Nice one Ez.

    My love.
    'Perambulation' is oneof the first words I learned. Yesterday I was telling you about how I got 50p for reading a dictionary, in Doneygal, from my parents, on rainy days. You will remember and I know that because you remeber everything: good and bad.
    Nothing will ever sway us. We are a force to be reckoned with indeed.

    I love you - adore you - with every inch of my body, soul and mind.

    This piece is brilliant. I have a feeling of you reading it to me (it has to be done in your voice) (or it would be... oh, sigh, I am getting carried away, but I just want to hear it that way)

    It is brilliant. And so are you. And you are the love of my life.

    Every word in this means something and has me thinking. I am sorry about history but history is there to be replaced. And you know what? I've got and Ez and I'm going to use him....

    In just the way in which you can use a Tara.

    Now come home when you can.

    Sorry to be long-winded... that affected me. I love you.

    t xxxx

    (PS please can you keep your eyes shut when you come in because i haven't sorted all the stuff out yet) . x x x x
