Love Song

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 5/22/2016

Removed for at least a little while because I just sent it to Chicken Soup for the Soul. We'll see if they like it. :) if not I'll put it back here.

Oh Damari!

Damari! This is sooo beautiful! The poem's rhythm is so lovely and it flows so well!
The melody may become rough;
Days ahead will seem very tough.
Incandescence may fade for days,
And joy may not bring forth it's plays;
Those are some of my favorite lines! Words like incandescence really gives you a specific meaning and this poem a wonderful feel. Great job (as usual!)
Blessings to you!

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! Incandescence is actually the word I used multiple times a day when I was trying to explain to Arthur how happy I was during our courtship. Also because the comment I get most often is "You're glowing!" :) so it has a bit of a special meaning.
Thank you again! God bless you, dear.

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

I'm loving all this

I'm loving all this inspiration you've had! This is another lovely piece. I will say, I really enjoyed your use of "mould"--after reading the previous line, I was expecting "love and hold", so I was pleasantly surprised. Again, I can feel your excitement buzzing in these words! Have you guys picked a month yet for your wedding? Of course you don't have to say--I was just wondering if it's close!

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

Thank you so much! Yes, we

Thank you so much!
Yes, we just decided on December 23rd. :) it's kinda cool because that is my maternal grandparents wedding date (it'll be their 65th wedding anniversary), and I am wearing my maternal grandmother's wedding dress. :) pretty special right there. :)
Some days December feels really far off but honestly time has been just flying by so I'm sure it won't be difficult to wait. :)

How Exciting!

Oh Damari! That sounds so exciting! It has been a dream of mine to have a Christmas-time wedding someday, but most of my family is against it for logistical and logical reasons. I still want it though! Hopefully someday when I meet and marry my man, he'll back me up on that Christmas wedding idea ;)
I am still so excited and happy for you! Blessings!
