beautiful Cyrano

it is easy to imagine
you hiding down below
beneath balcony shadows
in the dark velvet grass
like Cyrano
confessing his love
hiding his sin
concealing his flesh
his wracked passion floating up
to Roxane’s heaving bosom
ripe to receive
the soft erotic words
the raging love
the chiseled form
but she doesn’t desire
the beautiful man
whose imperfections bind his soul
whose fear knots the chords of his heart
the goddess embraces clarity
but it is too late
the beautiful man can no longer speak
his desperate lips have been forever silenced
had he not feared the light
he would have been dazzled

    • Ah, thank you so very much. I’m not sure sometimes – well, to be honest – quite a lot about my writing. I’ve been working on improving my artwork, when this free verse fiend took hold of my fingers…so I’m sort of going with it until it tells me to stop.
      Have a lovely weekend.

  1. I am totally running out of superlatives, Miss. I could say “Beautiful Cyrano” is “beautiful,” “lovely,” “moving,” “passionate,” or any other adjective — but surely you know that by now. Please don’t doubt yourself, no room for that in your writing world. You are “free” to write free verse because 1) you are so darn good at doing it, and 2) people (i.e., your readers) enjoy and are moved by it. 🙂
