You,
clip art,
no?!

Iíve no worries;
Iíll cut out your image
leaving the wings behind
and the bow and arrow, too,
must go.
No artist-lover
should run after me
and claim for copyright
when I already have you
pasted on my own canvass,
nakedness aggrandized
with air-spray
of venereal colors
of flesh and blood.

Iíve no mercies;
Iíll email my friends
and enemies
with versions of you
in either the mulberry leaves
covering your loins
or the one thatís only
wreathing your head.
Iíll even print-out
and post in bus stations
and park benches
and send some more to nunneries
alongside frightening chain letters.

You are no mere clip art,
yes.
But I am still bound
to stealing you
from where you are right now,
steadfast in your innocence
or naivetť.
Your beauty
mocking me,

maddening me.

peterpaulino - do tell
Please enlighten me. I had all kinds of crazy thoughts reading this. I'd like to know the heart and mind of the writer here.

Feliciastone - Isolasist
This was written because of a good friend's request that I write him a poem in exchange for an (avatar) reading he did with one of my photos. He was so good doing the reading, and brilliant he always has been whenever he discuss to me some things, even in the past - despite the innate inocense that I could always sense in him. I, being the person who's always full of surprises, wrote him this with a degree of extremity in my want to wake him up from his inncocense or 'our' so called his naivete. I tease him here because I regard him as far more good looking than me, but oh, what a waste! Thank you Felicia, for reading. I hope this helps you appreciate my poem more. :)

peterpaulino-makes sense
This was a fun read, even moreso with the backstory to push me off the ground. Very amusing.

When I read it, it made me think of the jilted ex-lover who is threatening to send the nude photos that he took during the throws of trusting passion (especially the second stanza) to people that would make his ex cringe.

Your avitar is very attractive, and we are to assume that your friend is more attractive? Maybe the bus stations and nunneries could stand a look.

Keep writing, I enjoy your style!

Peter's clip art
I read this yesterday, but waited for you to respond to Felicia. Now I get it (wink). I too was thinking much along the same lines, like oh oh somebody is going to be sending along naughty photos! Wonderful reading you Peter.

Hugs,
Nae ;0)

Embrace or threaten
I couldn't decide, while reading this, whether the author was threatening a former lover or embracing him/her teasingly. And that's what I liked best about it!

Ever the delightful romantic, my friend. You belong to a better time . . .

Felicia, Nae, Viper - Isolasist
Felicia, again thanks. There, makes me realize again that we are not oftenly restricted to just one result when we write poetry. And geez, thanks, that avatar was the one he gave a reading for, you know those stuff - I wasn't looking at the camera and that means blah blah blah... :)

Nae, Oh well, uhm yaiks er... ugh... (wink!) Okay we understand each other. :)

Viper, my friend, yes... that's what I have been thinking. I belong to a better time, not in this century LOL! The truth is I couldn't be that naughty in real life, here and now.
