So I have been trying out Match.com. I have sent messages to a number of people and till now, I got no reply, which was fine (eventually the interest will be mutual). I came across one profile that inspired me so that I lapsed into my writing habit. A habit I had discovered through this blog. I write in verse first and then shift it into prose (sometimes), and for these messages I had not been doing that. Anyways I wrote my message to her as a poem and left it in verse. I thought I would share it.
A little about me,
I am a man with no doubt in my faith,
who has spent a bout out of the shadows
and in the light of sharing the love an’ grace
found in the arms of our maker.
I played the farmer to the youth,
in hope to safeguard the seeds from harm,
the hurt that this life brings,
upon the young and troubled I mended, though;
I can no longer say I plant crops.
That which has sprouted,
is now tended in care, calling them
some of my closest friends.
When this traveler of the blank page,
stumbled onto your stage, a blink rose
not one but two. Could this be true?
Another that declares them a wordsmith,
a brewer of literature, a poet, an’ finds
interest in such. A girl, a woman who
declares herself good, that this knight,
this lonely writer peeks from his bay,
and tries to find the words to say;
to stick out above the herd, and perhaps
He flows on inspiration given by a beauty,
that holds it more than just skin deep,
she shares a faith, and a kindness of heart,
he has tripped and fumbled about
to find. So as the keys begin to cool,
and that one labeled send is about to be pressed,
he turns to a format more usual. . .
After this I included a basic introduction. I did receive a reply, though she was about to meet someone she had been talking to for a bit. However, I still took this as a good thing, for she did like the message (so the reaction was good) and I think I am going to relax more on future emails and just write, how I write haha.
