Loved Always

April 5, 2013 § Leave a comment

Glint of your eyes in sunlight,

Golden-brown of sweet honey,

As warm as your crooked smile,

Dawning with the sun.


The copper crumbs in your hair,

Of tender burnt-umber curls,

Reflection of bronze sprinkles,

That’s tipping your nose.


And the tilt of your chin,

The rim of your pastel lips –

Imperfections, perfections,

Loved always by me.


Day 5 of NaPoWriMo is a Dodoitsu!

As Dodoitsus are usually love or humour poems, and I lack the ability to be humorous, I managed to write an incredibly cheesy and clichéd love poem that actually makes me cringe a little bit.

Dodoitsus are fairly short, but I decided to extend mine for 3 stanzas because 4 lines is a bit of a cop-out, especially this early in April! Another syllabic form but this came easier to me – probably because I didn’t try to write it at 1.30am.
