Drawn Together… #oneshotwednesday #poetry


My first sweep of your jawline

a shade around your nose

caught on your eyes

what happened who knows

**

I sketched until dawn

a face that I’d rendered

then why were my lips

shaking and tender

***

I peered deeper

you looked back at me

what had I done

had I set my love free?

**

To settle on a face

the one of my dreams

Oh what a fool

to believe in such schemes

**

I continued to draw

each night until dawn

nothing changed

what had gone wrong?

***

Hearing a sound

before the sun rose

a knock on the door

could it be? I don’t know

***

There you stood

rays circling your face

the man in my drawing

it was you in this place

I recently started drawing again. I have spent hours, days on a face. I imagined what it would be like to draw someone into existence ~ Voila!

  1. drawing someone into existence… I like that a lot. I used to draw all the time a few years ago. mostly yu-gi-oh & anime characters… the face & hands are always the hardest to perfect…

    great poem moonie!

  2. So today’s a triple celebration: One Stop’s birthday, your poem, and your return to drawing. How lovely that your hand works in concert with the words in your head.

  3. A really lovely poem about a very lovely idea…I could imagine a novel or a film exploring the/a story around your poem/idea….I wonder, if to some extent, we all ‘draw’ someone in our minds before they appear..then life throws surprises! hmm..happy drawing Leslie!! :))

  4. This set my imagination off on a Poe-like tangent – what if the “man” brought into existence is some sort of soul-less golem? Sorry to be macabre, but I can’t help but wonder what happens next.

    1. I like your blog its awesome. You are my night in siihnng armor the love of my life. You are my prince charming at the ballroom fest night. I can’t wait to see more of your poetry about just about everything. For video games you should start at Secret of Mana and then maybe Dawn of Mana ^_^

  6. Leslie,
    First of all I would like to comment on your beautiful poem. I really enjoyed the mixture of poetry and drawing. The talent apparent in both. I don’t know if you are going to share, but if you do I would love to see your artwork!!! Second, congratulations on a year at One Stop Poetry, thank you for making it all possible. It is hard to think a year has gone by. I’m glad I met a friend like you. Cheers to another fantastic year and many more!!!!

    1. The best part is the friendships we have gained …
      The hand I can’t take credit for – my problem is time to write and draw

  7. Leslie…for the first time in years, I picked up a box of colored pencils, and spent the weekend doodling my heart out. I can’t say I’m very good, but my goodness…what therapy came with those strokes of color going every direction…forming ultimately a collage of the most unexpected things…much like seeing that “person” come to life at the hands of your pencil. I thought this piece brought that all in and then some! Another wonderful write that was much appreciated, as is all the work you do at Onestop. I think I can speak for all of us when I say “THANK YOU! and of course, Happy Birthday! 🙂

  11. What a lovely read. Dreams can say so many things to us and they do sometimes become our reality, too. Thank goodness it had a happy ending, I love happy endings~!
    Thank you for visiting me and the great comment and, thank you too for all the work you each put into to organising One stop Poetry for us all.

  12. So good to see you back. Missing Pete. ..a lot this particular week. Hope you’re feeling better. I think drawing must be good therapy and magic to keep the “hurties” away. We’re hanging in here. Loved this piece – sort of reminded me of that TV drama – the Doll Maker – where she thought she could sculpt the face of God. Maybe you can “draw” Angels to your door. I believe in that! All love your way, sweet one.
