Icicles

It gave you pleasure
melting my resistance,
shining in the sparkle
you found in my eyes,
a twinkling treasure

Partially hidden from view,
wrapped in glossy paper
you tore away layers,
ribbons untied

Held this gift in your gaze,
touched outer layers,
slipped in skillfully,
heat replaced cold,
closed my eyes
to milky ways

I have often wished upon you
like some far off star
in the wintry sky,
and thought,

Darlin’, if you only knew

wow as well
fantastic especially the first stanza

It gave you pleasure
melting my resistance,
shining in the sparkle
you found in my eyes,
a twinkling treasure

La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh)
"Life has been unfaithful And it all promised so so much
I am a relic I am just a petrified cry Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
The applause nails down my silence
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I see liberals I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy Where they patronise my misery
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay

Good writing, Corine.  I like the references to love being a gift.  It is, too bad more people don't realise this.

Thank you, Corinne - this is one of my favorite poems, and definitely deserved another read.  That last line is a killer line.
