Missives of the Deep -------------------------------------------
Tonight as you enter
that dystopian adventure
beyond the pale-wall
that most misconstrue to be sleep
know that I shall have your back.
I will be your personal Spartan set
with spear and shield held high
ready to fortify you with
As you recline with inward-looking
eyes and gaze upon midnights
Remember I am bound
within your shadow.
I will render
not tender kisses
but steel in my missives
personally modified to keep
you sighing deep.
I cannot be made of tenderness
until together we reach
that mystic state
the crack of dawn.
I can ditto the "I do kind of feel that dystopia is difficult for me to fathom . " that Bruce mentioned, although as Czech/English I kind of have him bracketed geographically.
"beyond the pale-wall" is rather neat. Crack of dawn as a mystic state... somewhat sublime genius, obviously divine in origin. Else that or it's just some dirty sexual innuendo. Reader's choice. Love those choices.
Did I ever tell you I wrote a book called "Id Conclusion" ? I really relate to your take on the subject here . I do kind of feel that dystopia is difficult for me to fathom . After all I'm German , I live for the fight . Defend her with far flung missives of steel , oh yah , I've been known to strop my buck knife on the strings of my guitar before composing love songs . Believe me I really feel you here . I don't know , just my two cents worth . I really seem to relate your feelings here , contrarily I like it better when my women fight by my side . Maybe thats chauvinistic but I actually expect them to want to . Maybe I've been watching too many reruns of Xena .
