5 (who?)
I am
a Renaissance Man
in a WalMart generation


When you smile
I will grin

What you feed me
I will eat

As you shine
I will spin

By your love
I am complete


When you break it
I will mend it

As you ask
I will try

Though you fear it
I will rend it

If you needed
I would die


By your kiss
I am favored

With your voice
I am confirmed

All your whispers
I will savor

In your breath
I will burn


But if you bleed
I will discompose

It is not that complicated

Renaissance Manby brokenisland

I worked on this longer than most. The inspiration was instant - but the revisions took about a month. I'm at the limit of my abilities, so I might as well set it free...

"In a walmart generation" that line took me by the hair and dragged me in. Woo imagery. But seriously. Darn! Oh that doesn't sound right to me. Damn! yeah that's better. Sorry. 
I love this poem.
I'm not really one for love-y-ish poems which is what I considered this to be. No offense. 
But I enjoyed the read and the flow and the everything. 
Lovely job!

Well, thank you very much! Since you are obviously not into the sappy/dreamy/love-y-ish stuff..  the fact that you liked it means that I did something right I think! I will take it as a win!

As you should.
Take it as a double win why don't you? :D
