DAZED VIOLET EYES

albino 3

Memories flung into a harvest time bonfire, an immaculate enforcement of shameless remorse

Reconciliation is but transparent breathing space, twixt hostilities estranged lovers endorse

The waning moon, her closest confidant, the ubiquitous sun her silent nemesis

On a ‘seen better day’s’ hopeless mattress, she favours his sex, not his kiss

The albino girl wearing just one earing, a mere name tag bearing her onetime address

Astride him she rides out the storm of entanglement, dazed violet eyes indisposed to obsess

Picking out a dirge on his wilting heart strings, a heretofore courtly love blasé troubadour

A stock refrain, a pretty poor anthem, for a battle won, though she cares not for the war

She holds the key that locks in his tainted passion, the whitest smile that undoes his cold heart

Recycles confetti for next year’s rainy day wedding, leaving big man, big ego torn apart

(a muse upon a new character; she, who has breezed uninvited into a tale I am endeavouring to pen presently)

  1. Intriguing, Mike, and steamy! I love this idea of a muse coming to visit the writer. I happen to be reading a novel by John Fowles (of French Lieutenant’s Woman fame) called Mantissa that I think you would really enjoy. The whole novel is a conversation between an author and his evolving female character, sometimes naughty, sometimes mythical. It’s out of print now I think but I got my last copy from Amazon. I think this is the third time I have read it and each time it seems richer. This poem is inspirational. I can’t wait to see her in prose.

    • LuAnne you refer to one of my most favourite books of all time. Haven’t read it for years yet it sits pride of place on my bookshelves in mint condition (along with everything Mr Fowles, late of Lyme Regis ever wrote – The Magus is a gem by the way, but guess you know that already). Indeed re The French Lieutenant’s Women the cover of my book, ‘Gentlemen Prefer a Pulse’ has my wife on the Cob at Lyme Regis as was the gal on the movie poster made of said book. My sincere thanks you read this piece. Best of good fortune be on you.

      • So good to meet someone who knows that book – you are the first one I’ve met. I am half way through this reading. My husband loves me reading this one – puts me in a good mood – I know you know what I mean. 😉

      • My wife reads 3 books a week – sometimes I think she has read every book ever written – so I do know what you mean. The Glass Room by Simon Mawer may be worth a follow up yet that is me throwing in the subjective.

    • I think I may be on the cusp of doing that very same thing Leslie. God my brain hurts…referendum result tomorrow will hopefully kill my insomnia (5 hours sleep in last 4 days; feel totally drunk but haven’t had a drink etc.) and I’ll get my sense of humour back…or not, depending upon the result…plus bloody Trump is in Scotland the next day!
