Insignia

Insignia

Allora Handmade Brooch

I need someone
Who’ll wear my love like a band
Not on the finger of any hand
But on her forehead like the Indians
She’ll wear it as a necklace
Bold, beautiful & fair
Like the silver brooch
In her windblown hair

It’ll sing around her feet
Anklets of gold so clear
And whisper words of my heart
From the diamond earrings in her ear
Giving her strength of the eagles
The bracelets of virtue on her hands
And the wisdom of the ravens
Woven into the bells on her hair strands

On her neck like a silk scarf
It’ll always keep her warm
And like the finest Mithril armor
My love will absorb any harm
Slippers of perfect crystal
Lifting her above life’s cares
Exalted above all else
Like the jeweled tiara on her head

I’ve found someone
Who wears my love proudly
Like her exquisite garment of sand
Just as I wear hers, forever
On the third finger of my left hand

  1. “Who’ll wear my love like a band

    my favourite lines.

    Nice!

  2. Good effort. But the thoughts are not as coordinated as they’re meant to be. “I need someone….I’ve found someone.” Hmmmm. It slacks.

    …..Hmmmm. The imagery you’re trying to paint was not well presented, bro. Grament of sand…on the third finger???? Funny. Do improve your skills on your use of imagery. Well, it’s quite an old poem. 2009 is long ago. Let’s see your current standard. Let’s read new works.

  3. If you wrote this good @ 2009, I wonder how good u must be now. I understood the graduation from ‘I need someone’ to ‘ I found someone’. Glad the search is over. @Doremi, it is well coordinated jo. Before the ‘ I found’, there was a period where ‘ I need’. Good job.

  4. I like the poem… Most times the bands mean nothing to the wearers.

    3rd finger? Marriage is the fourth. Truth is, that last stanza made me think of death, the lady’s death…and the fact that they didn’t get married before her death. Oh well. 3rd or 4th, a band works when there is love.
    Well done, Mase. $ß.

    A new and more obvious approach to love profession I guess .. pretty innovative …

  6. Love things sha…makes people wax poetic…

    Well done

  7. He needed someone, he found someone!
    Nice poem!

  8. Thanks for the comments guys, keep them coming.

    @doremi,
    artists don’t try to paint…they do
    & art isn’t judged by what you logically conclude
    but your ability to be deliciously deluded
    without a masterpiece being misconstrued

    @sibbylwhyte, true, but you really have just four fingers…& a thumb ;-)
