The Other Side of Love – A weird poem.

OK. I admit it, this one’s a weird one. It was written for The Haunted Wordsmith’s Genre Challenge, see the link below:

Today’s Genre is Paranormal Romance. Not something I have written before, and I started writing a story, but for some reason, it kept rhyming, so I rewrote it as a poem instead.

Here you go.

Every night I wait here

Laying on my bed,

I can feel you next to me,

Your hand upon my head.

No one else can see you,

Though I can hear your words

To others its incoherent noise,

Like the babbling of the birds.

My love is like a radar

Tuning carefully into you,

I can sense your tender touch,

Your warmth is coming through.

You said you’d never abandon me,

And now I believe it’s true,

You’re here with me, eternally,

We’ll always be, ‘Us two’.

I find myself spending all my days

Just waiting for the time,

When I hear your ‘come hither’ call,

Those moments most sublime.

Those are the times I treasure most,

Laying tenderly with you in my bed,

Even though you are a ghost,

I love you more since you’ve been dead.

Picture of the Day – Out of this world.

I was tempted to post this picture and ask for people to try to identify what it is.

I think this looks so surreal, like something out of a hallucinogenic dream or a science fiction film.

What this actually is, is the ceiling of the Royal Albert Hall in London.

These weird mushroom like things that hang suspended from the ceiling and are lit up in such a weird and wonderful way are actually for the acoustics. At least that’s what I was told.

Hope you like this picture.
