I'm Slipping

I hear your voice in my head, simply mellifluous

I can see sparkly white teeth smiling at me with chuckles

Sniggers I hear, as you call my name, laughing as we yarn

Its snug geniality calms my profoundly hurting soul

I think I’m falling for this voice in my head

I have images in my mind though not so apparent

Are you a castle in Spain abiding only in my thoughts?

Or a certainty from the other end of the line

I know I like what I hear, and from what I’ve heard

It is better than I might imagine but not can

You have possessed the inmost nooks of my mind

This voodoo has got to be halted

Shubby Doo said...

Baroque hun, why did you get our very own noble & shiny stone 'smaragd' to change her name? now she sounds like the gypsy girl from notre dame!!!

Shubby Doo said...

p.s
how is pearly whites? you know this thing you feel is not black magic…it’s love… there is no stopping it… no spell to counter it…

Here’s hoping you are well on the way to becoming completely immersed in love… I get it’s scary sha but it’s the good kind so enjoy it ;-)

@chari, i'm trying to oh..i really am trying...

Shubby Doo said...

@baroque - mellifluous cri de coeur i think means sweet-sounding cry of the heart... i.e. your deeply-felt, passionate poetic verse appropriately named 'i'm slipping'...
