My Last Duchess

That’s my last Duchess painted on my heart
Looking so alive. I called to her not sure of her answer
That piece a wonder, now: God‘s hands
Worked busily a day, and there she stands.
Will’t please you sit and look at her? I said

I call her my Maybach , a wonder to behold
chichi, perfection personified , a classic
Gentle and cool like a warm summer breeze
But ferocious like the heigh tides of the Atlantic seas

I am enthused while calling up that spot of joy. She had 10
A heart — how shall I say? — too soon made me glad,
Too easily i am impressed; she is like a blue whale
As She looked on, her looks went everywhere.
Sir, ’twas all one! Her favor I craved

The dropping of the daylight from the West,
But she is from the East , and resides in the north
Born in the south ; she encompasses it all
A variance from the Norm

The interference of a officious fool
Broke in the orchard for her, the white mule 20
His inability to keep it in has let her out
I must capitalize on his miscalculation
And woe this Coy maiden

She rode with round the terrace — all and each
Would draw from her alike the approving speech,
Or blush, at least. Many fans she has gathered
Her following almost cultic

It appears she has not found me appealing
For her gaze is not reviling
I am lost by this :the empty sounds I hear 30
As I avowed At starting,
Gazing upon you .

Nay, we’ll go Apart but I persist
Reaching into the deepest part of my unbalanced soul
Searching for the right sequence of words
to express my inordinate yearning
I love the Idea of A-You
