Painting a perfect love #poetry and #prose

I wish you could stay perfect
But each failed love
And each broken heart
Has painted you anew
Brushed you beyond the spectrum of the human eye,
Paranormal shades
That only the spirit can see,
An astroplane
Where dwells
The true colours,
Of love.

I have seen you
Silhouetted on the fringes of my conscience
And my mind begins to sketch
While the heart paints between the lines

You start off classic,
Perfectly Noir
Plush hair, googoo eyes, and heart-shaped lips
Mysterious, cunning and clever.
A dame, a Queen, a lover
One who has sutured my heart
And let it beat with new colour.

As you lie here in my arms
Obliging to my whims
And oblivious to my thoughts
I think of the perfect shade for your sensual lips
And which colour of shadow to frame your alluring gaze
I must think hard and true
For there is no gloss that can hide the deception in a kiss
No liner to mask the vulnerability in the eyes
No shade to truly hide the lust nor the love
The desperate surrender
Nor the hope of forever
So I must think hard and true
As I paint my perfect you
A portrait for my soul
A blueprint for my heart
And a memory for my mind.

Shades of perfection
The Hidden colours of love
Seen through emotion

Deep down, we know what’s best for us.
But what we want is often different.
Many say perfection does not exist,
But I think it is not seen, nor explained, rather it is felt.
That when we strike the delicate balance between what’s good for us,
And what we want,
Perfection can be found, even amidst the faults.

So think hard, and paint the perfect lover in your mind.
Or just look besides you, each morning and each night.

Blessed New year everyone. I’ve not been online for a while. Looking forward to catching up with your sites. Lemme know what you think about this post.

Stay safe, and stay loving.

  3. Thank you, Jude: another beautifully woven and thought-provoking poem. I think idealised love we project and yet we feel real love in our hearts. But what are our motives? If there is no motive, I guess that’s real love! Happy New Year to you!

    1. Thank you so much Ingrid. Yes I agree with you about no motives. It’s hard to fall in love like the first time though, but more than possible to find a better love

    1. I guess it evolves and grows on us sometimes. Then when we tried what we used to want, nothing is better than what we have nurtured.

  17. Perfection can be found, even amidst the faults…i like this thinking of yours. and I think mistakes make us perfect because we learn something from them

    1. I couldn’t agree more. love doesn’t seem to feel real if it is flawless, does it? The flaws make it perfect.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yes you are right. Flawless love does not feel true. It seems drama. All the tastes of life should be there. There should be a little anger, jealousy greedness from which love grows. That person should feel insecure when others interfere in their love.
