she knits her verses
into my heart
with melancholy thread
forever words
entwined in every chamber
which no palpitation can unstring

inhaling her poems
I exhale the metaphors she weaves
she is the falsetto of my sigh
the muse who resuscitates
for she writes the poetry
that I breathe

  1. If poetry is romance, and titles are the foreplay. Then you my friend Drew are Casanova, but in the modern day. Writing a poem that stops people from doing what the title indicates, magically written my friend. “She knits her verses into my heart”, sewing words of love and making it last and following it with “entwining in every chamber which no palpitation can unstring”. That sounds absolutely harmonious, romantically sounding. The inhaling and exhaling blends with your title alone and the line, “She is the falsetto of my sigh”….breathtaking moment ending it with the perfect crescendo…Poetry I breathe! I dare ask how you do it because a magician never reveals his magic but you make beautiful art.
    I usually don’t dance unless I hear music but sometimes when I read your work, I smile because I just feel it’s so personalized. It just seems like the magic Sparkling Freeze has, but that what makes you incredibly special my friend, your ability to reach people which is why we love and respect you. Keep it up good friend Drew.

    And don’t give too many people a sunburn with your shine.😎

      1. You are more than welcome! I know how crazy moving and unpacking is, but just take your time. Things will all unfold the way they are meant to. I think this will be a great move for you and filled with LOTS of inspiration for your amazing poems!


  2. Your move to Florida has not had any negative effect on your writing – such a lovely poem! I especially love these two lines – I exhale the metaphors she weaves; she is the falsetto of my sigh!

  3. …And perhaps she breathes the poetry that you write?
    A beautiful poem is like a silk gown, rustling across the floor, its tail an epic of mermaids swimming behind.
