Me, making fun of myself

Old-Fashioned Romance Novel Scene

* This is a poem about me, making fun of myself
for the sappy, sentimental romantic nature of myself...lol

Give me an old-fashioned romance novel scene
Where the man is dashing, straight out of a dream
My hair is flowing in a soft summer wind
And we kiss during sunrise until day’s end

To make portrayal perfect, throw in a horse
Standing in the meadow, nickering of course
The vivid colored sky creates perfect backdrop
Precise chemistry, for our hearts to flip flop 

All the while, I will gaze into your soft eyes
Amazed at the great tenderness they comprise
Feeling strong masculinity in your embrace
I may faint making love in this fantasy place 

Tell me you love me, at least one-thousand times
Your dear voice, the sound of Sistine Chapel chimes
I shall swoon and sway, in passionate persuade
Wrapped in your arms, where real life can’t invade

We can play footsie during sunset, until dark
Make moaning animal noises like Noah’s ark
Express cutesy sentiments, cliché’s routine
Give me an old-fashioned romance novel scene

HI Jill...I am glad you found it clever....I wanted to do something that shows my extreme love of the romantic genre...making fun of myself for how sappy and sentimental I am over romance and love...the cliche and expected over the top kind of scenes....not really a serious love poem at all but expressing the humor of movie type portrayed love...which I adore and live in fantasy in my head....and wish life could be that way!  People on Cosmo know me as the Queen of Passion and Romance, so I took that title to the extreme.   It was fun..just expressing humor.  Thanks!

Awww....I know I live a bit out of the world's portrayal of love...I find it so sacred and beautiful and taken for granted...sigh xo

great poem in the olds day
a respectable girl wasn't allowed
to be any where alone with man
intill she was married
and you couldn't kiss in public
or the police would say something
or do something the good old days
just look how it is today so sad

HI Greg...You are right.....Girls used to have to have chaperones often too when they were with a man....and holding hands was the extent of affection .....It was innocent and pure....and even in old movies you can see how times  have changed....The old 50s shows always had married couples in twin beds...lol  I think love is beautiful and should be respected as a sacred bond between two.   Thank you for your support.  xo ;)

amazingly portrayed, and while it's a work you consider
"self-jest" I think it only serves to further solidify you as
a Serious Writer of profound Romantic Poetry/Prose.

very well done..

Oh!  Thanks J!  It was me totally showing how over the top I am sappy about romantic writes....but I am so happy that you see it as serving to solidify myself as a serious writer of profound romantic poetry/prose. Yeah!  It was fun.  I am glad you understand.  xo ;)

Cheerie! 
You're awesome! 
Even in 'making fum of yourself', you write wonderful, gorgeous, love scenes! 
You have great, wacky lines, but you can still see the beautiful, loving sentiment in your heart. Fantastical! 
I'm a huge fan of being playful in love, and you've captured all aspects of that so beautifully. 
You're an Angle! (an obtuse one, at that!). Kidding, you're an Angel. 
Loved that so much! 
Keep breaking into silliness occasionally, because it's great. 

Love and hugs, 

Matthew.

Lol...Hi Matthew.  I think I am more of an acute angle because I am less than a 90 degree angle, especially because of my neuropathy....lol  I have to make fun of myself because I do realize that I am a bit fantastical in my views of love and romance....ever appreciative of the inspiration that love gives me to write...Thanks for understanding my silliness that comes out.  I laughed as I wrote this thinking of how avid of a romance lover I am.  Love n hugs, Cheerie ;)

My Dear Cherie,

Just an old-fashioned love ode
One I wrote for you and me
We are the pair in a romance novel
Hot and sexy do we be

.
My hair is long and flowing
And you are my macho man
Each page is filled with passion
Making love when e'er we can

All my love,
Larry xxx

Lol...Yes, I meant this as a jock upon myself for my sappy sentimental romantic state of mind...I would not normally put things like "playing footsie" or "making moaning animal noises like Noah's Ark" when I am trying to go for a serious love poem....I like all the cliche touchy feely things about love...and create an ideal that maybe is not the norm...but in my heart feels beautiful...Thanks Marion.  xo Love n Hugs
