Do Not Forget Me

Do not forget me
when the chill of Winter
steals away the warmth
from your heart
But think of me
as you look
into the flames

of a warming fire
Imagine I am there
as the blanket of night
shuts away the sun
and brings the stars to light
As I lay beside you
all vulnerable and exposed
the glow of flames
upon my softest skin
the fire's light
reflected in my eyes
It's warmth brings colour
to my cheeks
and a blush of softest pink
to my lips that long
for your kiss
Please remember me
as I reach out to you
with the softest embrace
and you look upon my face . . .

Poem by Dianne D.

Painting: Sea Serpent IV - Gustav Klimt - 1907

Little Lamb said...

I won't forget you, Dianne.

dianne said...

Lol, yes Puggles my sweet, her cheeks are lovely just as they are but I was actually referring to the cheeks on my face, you know the one's that colour when we blush or are warm.

You have let me off lightly with your comment this time, I thought you would wonder what kind of a girl I am who would lay down naked in front of a fire next to someone whom I hope will remember me and might seduce me. ;-) xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear /t.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed my poem, I began to write this one in February and it remained unfinished until last night.
The Klimpt painting is perfect, I chose it because there is a warmth to it and a lovely glow to the colour of her skin.

Yes our Pug is very funny, life would be very dull without him. :)

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Dearest COL ,
Klimpt is one of my favourite painters too,if you have a book no doubt you have also seen his beautiful landscapes and forest trees in Autumn.
Thank you, I am so pleased that you loved my poem, it would be a very intense moment to experience, to be with someone that you loved ... happy that you could feel the warmth and sweetness there.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Lil Lamby ,
I won't forget you either my sweet little friend. xoxoxo ♡

foam said...

yes, but ... the warmth of the fire could also bring a blush to your bottom cheeks .. :)

this is a very lovely poem. you are a poet indeed.
and i love klimt.

dianne said...

Yes dearest Foamy
if my 'bottom cheeks' were facing the fire it could indeed bring a blush to them ... it depends on whom is where ... if I was lucky enough for this to happen I would probably be blushing all over ...

Thank you I am so pleased that you think my poem is lovely, I started to write this poem in February, but only the first three stanzas, it was for my colonel and only he would understand the relevance of those words ... there was nothing romantic about it.
As you know he disappeared so I decided not to finish it; then last night I was looking through my unfinished poems, remembered this one and decided to make it a romantic poem, but not for him, for no-one in particular, just a poem, I put my thoughts into words.
Yes I love Klimt also and this painting was suitable as the nudity is subtle and I love the colours, though two perky nudie breasts with peachy-pink nipples would have been a pretty addition to his painting. :) xoxoxo ♡

chickory said...

one of your better poems. its very tender, and the imagery is great. if we are lucky, we can all relate. except pug. his eyes were filled with a backside of curled fur. grherhaha

HLiza said...

Lovely..I so feel the warmth of your cheeks and lips Dianne..how can anybody forget you..

dianne said...

Thank you dearest chickory , pleased that you enjoyed my poem, tender yes but no sadness.
Lol, poor Puggles, but I guess that is a dog's choice. xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dearest HLiza , I'm pleased that you could feel the warmth of my poem through my words...
How could anyone forget me? Someone already has. xoxoxo ♡

Kathleen Scott said...

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

The Mess said...

Would have loved to use a feather..

and tickle her..

Maha said...

Utterly beautiful.
THe imagery you used felt so alive and beating with glowing beauty. I love how you poetically presented night and day with such a delicacy

dianne said...

Thank you dear Kathleen
that is very sweet of you, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my poem.
xoxox ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear M ,
hmmm being tickled by a feather, I did not think of that, the girl in the painting might enjoy that. :)
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Maha for your lovely praise of my poem, and praise indeed coming from you.
I have not been inspired to write lately but I decided to finish this poem by adding a romantic element.
I have written poems in the past where I describe the night sky as a cloak of deep blue velvet which slowly drapes across the sky as the Sun descends to rest in her western sky, a last glimmer of light before it disappears from the horizon and then the night sky of deepest indigo comes alive as it sparkles with many stars and the silver light of the moon, like gems and silver thread embroidered on the cloak. xoxox ♡

Helene said...

lovely Dianne! I think your comment back to Pug was great though it might mean that he is considering just how he could come over and try to do that! hehehe

I like the romance in this one. It gives a feeling of openness to the poem. In my humble opinion...

Happy Friday! xo

dianne said...

Thank you dear Helene for your lovely opinion of my poem, I'm pleased that you could feel the romance in my words, there is much more to be read between the lines.

Yes that Puggles is a cheeky fellow,but in a nice way ... one never knows what he will say next. xoxoxo ♡

Have a great weekend!
