Ode to a Pillar

Today I professed my undying love to a pillar. Yes I'm random but I needed a break and wanted to make me laugh. So without further ado I give you...

Ode to a Pillar

Your beauty astounds me
There you stand tall and upright
A pearly marble column
Engraved with words of truth
From the door to paradise

A gleaming beacon of stone
You tower over me
Silent and serene
Never returning my love

My heart breaks with sorrow
As there you stand
Heartless and unmoving
As if made of stone
You ignore my plea of passion
And the words I whisper at your base
As I prostrate myself before you

Smooth as silk
Yet cold as ice
Unaware of my existence
You carry on
A sentinel over the seven hills
And rolling grassy valleys
Your Corinthian splendour
And slender fluted width

I long to run my hands
Over your weathered flanks
To softly kiss your noble base
And ornate acanthus leaves
I’m filled with a pantheon of passion
As I kneel before you
And cry out my undying love
And mutter sweet nothings
At your feet

    You astounding person, you. This is by far the craziest and most infinite slick, poem I've ever had the pleasure of reading...

    You make me laugh...

    ...*Laughs again* Bemused fish...

    Blessed be,
    Miss Mary Hiashi
