pinking up

for _____.

"This kiss is for the whole world" - Schiller

I will build an icon of you,
a shrine. In it I will put
all the things you have given me:
hours of time, one kiss or many,
two dried tears,
a loving look. In it
I will put my hope, my
fear. In it I will put
all of you I still have
when you are not here.
I will roll these things into a
ball, a blinding orb, a marble
small, hard and brilliant,
set in my palm.
I will roll it from me,
up a mountainside,
into the dark sky.
It will glow there like a star.
It will perhaps remind us of love.
And you,
you will still be here.

Together, we start again
our collection.

Where's that bucket (or hedge)?

Never mind him. Happy Valentine's Day!

Ricardipus said...

Heh. My scientific experiment is proceeding nicely.

Expected response from Rik - observed [check].

'nnygg' - the noise Rik is making right now.

Rik said...

Glad I lived up to your expectations.

'avpfysff' - The noise I made one year when my valentine's boyfriend found out and returned the card...

Ricardipus said...

Rik - I believe I may detect a future blogpost in that story...
