The Bard on the web


Oh never say that I was false of heart
Even though thy sweet lips I yearn to kiss
To touch your cheek and soft breasts from the start
Yes, I confess indeed that would be bliss
But I'm so very far away from you
Oceans deep and ache of years make it worse
I want to touch your butterfly tattoo
For feelings unreleased are such a curse
Words wrote freely flow like kisses tender
I dream that you are mine everyday
Both knowing the real heart of the sender
We should like true lovers embrace and play
Everything in this world wide web doth pall
Save thou my rose thou art my very all

Note the first and last lines are used from Shakespeare's Sonnet 109 with a modern day scenario written in between.

  2. Love the dance between the old, the new and the eternal. To love and want is always part of life's poetry, and your poem shows it so well.

  4. Whistles!!❤️💜 This is such a wonderfully sensuous write, Robin! I love how you took the lines from Shakespeare's sonnet and created magic with them! Sigh especially adore; "Words wrote freely flow like kisses tender, I dream that you are mine everyday. Both knowing the real heart of the sender, we should like true lovers embrace and play." Beautifully executed! Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support❤️💜


    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  6. I like you took the beginning and end, but created a modern, yet still exquisitely passionate, middle.
