Good sir, pray tell
What is it about her
That makes your flame swell
Is it her courtly locks of hair
That dances to your rhythm of despair
Her skin of porcelain and dusk
That furnishes you with warmth whenever you ask
Her playful and passion-speckled lips
That trembles against your finger tips
Or is it her beckoning eyes
That turns your words to lullabies

But she is of the earth and the sea
Her youth will betray her and flee
Her petals will wither
And the taste of her leaves will turn bitter
Her pages will wrinkle
And her bind will grow brittle
Time will tarnish her demeanor
Until all that's left in the mirror
Are her grains and bare disposition
Her beliefs and comprehension

What happens when her honey becomes bland
Will her hymns of wit still enchant your mind?
When the years finally take its toll
Will her words be able to kindle your soul?
And when the beauty departs,
Will her mind be enough
To satiate the hunger in your heart?

Good sir, pray tell
What is it about her
That makes your flame swell
If it is just the flesh you are craving
And nothing more beyond her bearing
You will lose her like a sunken ship

napapamura ako sa amazing talent mo sa poetry.

I only remember a fragment of my favorite poem from Edna St Vincent Millay.

"My candle burns at both ends,
it wont last the night,
But oh my friends ,'
and Ah my foes,
it gives a lovely light"

you inspire me to write poems again.

but im far off  compared with you.

Nako, sir. As a mere amateur who admires your works, I am humbled by your words. Haha Salamat po.

Great poem, indeed. I did a little research aaand found out that that isn't just a fragment but that is the poem itself and that it is basically about living life to the fullest (may it be in a reckless manner). Good message. But if we are to apply one of Roland Barthe's ideas from his essay, "The Death of the Author", the candle could signify a lot of things and so the poem could mean a variety of things depending on the reader. Ang ganda. Hahaha Thank you po for sharing this!

You know it's pure talent and gift that after you read this awesome poem it feels like the author created such a piece with little effort as if it's just natural for her to make such masterpiece anytime. What's even more impressive is the depth of her wisdom in this poem, delivering a punch to each man that we should view and search for a woman's beauty skin deep for such beauty does not wrinkle and get old with time.

Yes. The kind of beauty that only gets better with time. Haha
Thank you for the kind words but I still have a long way to go before I become deserving of such praise. Still, thank you. :)

nice poem. It's not everyday that you'll read something like this. I really appreciated it author tnx, though Im not really into poems. But as a self-proclaimed bookworm, I'd say this is one hell of a poem.

Bebe gurl, may i ask why ask such dark queries..
the time will come that you will lose your luster
but never your wits.
a time where you will be barrren and withered
allow me to keep you company as we wait for the Angel of Death to come our way

chickabebe, there will come a time when your hair will be as white as snowflakes and i will still look at you the same.
a young lady prancing around the garden sing her own song.
picking and smelling flowers as she walks by

Bebelabz, i will miss those days how we make love under stars like there was no tomorrow
but for today i would love to just stay and reminisce in our bed and Snuggle.

babez09, there will be days that we will forget about our past, days we will forgot where we peed but let there not be a day that i forget to say how much i care and appreciate your company in this lifetime and the next.

I was born a god.. raised as a king.. i bow down to no one..

bebegurlz, allow me to show you there is nothing to fear in this lifetime or the next
i will be beside you in helping you build great memories so you will forget that you
have withered
that you have lost your luster
i will not give you up not even to the new gods that will say we are obsolete and must perish

I was born a god.. raised as a king.. i bow down to no one..

Yan ang poem !

Ganda nung linya

What happens when her honey becomes bland
Will her hymns of wit still enchant your mind?
When the years finally take its toll
Will her words be able to kindle your soul?
And when the beauty departs,
Will her mind be enough
To satiate the hunger in your heart?

Ganda !

The  last lines though... Sakit!
