Fascino

You are hiding in lyrics
I cannot decipher.
I am writing words into your mouth.
Searching for you
Between the tenth of seconds
That lie between your fingers sliding
from one chord to the next.

I am going to make love to you tonight
You don’t know that yet.
Consumed in the trance of melodious fusions
Gliding upon your frets.

I pause for thought
Is it you
Or your muse
I love so dearly?
Is it you
Or the music
That sees me smiling
In concert to foolish sighs..

She lies cosseted against your heart
A darling!
Singing her phosphor bronze tarariddles
A lyrebird dressed in skylarks song.
Leaving you now second fiddle
Your voice lost..unstrung…

Who is charming who?
Me?
To have you sit with such devotion
Her to sing so sweet?
To me.
To you?
Ohhhh…

Lost in pluck and strum
That leaves me unable to stand
or to speak.
Forgotten your words that meander and flow
in riddles of your
Peculiar emotional colloquialisms.

Tonight…

I am going to make love to you

Unexpected.

With words that flow convoluted
Leaving you steaming in streams
Of sweat
Of ponderous possibilties
For the solution.

Is it about you
Or me
Your muse
Or mine?
Some other
The past?
A Fantasy?

Or just some line to bring a smile.
A lie…

    1. Hi Marian,

      Thankyou for taking the time out to read and your kind words. I’m really glad liked you liked the poem. πŸ™‚ I would be lost without the muses in my life! πŸ™‚ They certainly make life more beauitful. πŸ™‚

      Brightest Blessing to you.

  1. This is wonderful. I have felt like I’ve fallen in love with someone who is passionate about something. Then you wonder if it’s them or just a facade. Beautiful post! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far! *HUGS*

    1. Hi Diana,

      Thanks for reading and for your very kind words. I’m really glad you were able to be carried along with the sentiments of the poem. πŸ™‚
      It’s a question that’s occured to me a few times. What is it you love the person? Or the talent? When you are so carried away by their talent can you see the person to love them? Sometime thinking to much produces some interesting results. *LOL*.

      I hope you are having a wonderful week.
      I will email you in the next day or two. πŸ™‚

      ((HUGS))
      and Brightest Blessing to you.

  2. Hi Tikarma,

    This is such a beautiful and touching poem. There is so much tenderness in there. The whole poem is a tease to the reader, but at the same time captivating. It’s a story your brain just can’t leave alone.

    So many great lines in there. I must admit, as a musician and live performer, the stanza I realy love is-

    ‘I am going to make love to you tonight
    You don’t know that yet.
    Consumed in the trance of melodious fusions
    Gliding upon your frets.’

    I can relate to being up there and knowing nothing but the music. Oblivious to the world and the private thoughts of the audience. To me, this is the real tease πŸ™‚ One only sees the audience as a reactionary device. “What is working and where do I go from here?”. It all still comes down to the music. They are there to guide you to where you take the music. It is not being privy to their private thoughts. I might now think twice when I’m next on stage πŸ™‚

    And the wonderful verses about the guitar-

    ‘She lies cosseted against your heart
    A darling!
    Singing her phosphor bronze tarariddles
    A lyrebird dressed in skylarks song.
    Leaving you now second fiddle
    Your voice lost..unstrung…

    Who is charming who?
    Me?
    To have you sit with such devotion
    Her to sing so sweet?
    To me.
    To you?
    Ohhhh…

    Lost in pluck and strum
    That leaves me unable to stand
    or to speak.
    Forgotten your words that meander and flow
    in riddles of your
    Peculiar emotional colloquialisms.’

    Oooohhhhh…..this realy hits me! There is a very special bond with a musician and their instrument. As a singer, you must find your voice. As a musician, you must also find your voice. And this comes from the relationship with your instrument. It might take a good many years to find the right one, but when you do, the love affair starts πŸ™‚ It took me 4 guitars and almost 20 years before I found Mikotakamine (Shaman woman of the mountains), but I wouldn’t trade her for anything. She is so special to me and is my voice.

    And I do adore the ending. As I said, this poem is a tease, and you finish it off by continuing your wonderful tease. The story is not over. At least, for some πŸ™‚

    And I do love your choice of photo too, if you don’t mind me saying so πŸ™‚

    All’s I can say isI love all of this! Wonderful!

    With all my love, always and forever,

    Jamie

    1. Hi jamie,
      WOW! I’m really glad you were able to get so much from the poem. It’s very interesting to see your perspective. I guess at heart for all my pragamatism I’m big soppy romantic *lol*…tenderness is important in any love relationship. πŸ™‚
      Of course I’m glad too you enjoyed the tease. πŸ™‚

      I think there is a very fine line between the audience and the musician. There is the need to entertain and play what they are needing but you also need to feel the music for yourself and not loose that connection to it or your love for it. It is a dance of sorts and yes a tease. πŸ™‚
      I hope you don’t think twice! I’d hate for you to miss your cue! *LOL*

      Of course I completely agree with you about the relationship a musician has to their instrument. It most certainly is a love affair. Even on an amatuer level I love my Marty and I’m so glad I found him. My playing has improved immensly. When you have a piece of beauty to wrap your arms around who makes you feel good and has the power to take you to another space of feeling and being…why would you ever let them go. πŸ™‚

      Thanks again for sharing your insights as you see them as a musician and perfomer. I appreciate it.
      The photos is certainly one of my favourites! πŸ™‚

      Your in love always.

  3. This is beautiful, I very much enjoyed it !
    – it’s my new favorite!

    with Love,
    mum & Karley

    1. Hi Mum,

      Thankyou very much for reading. I wasn’t expecting you in here until much later so this is a lovely surprise. πŸ™‚

      I’m really very glad you enjoyed the poem. I’m touched too that this poem moved you enough to have it be a favourite. πŸ™‚

      with lots of love and
      BIG PATS to Karley
      Tikarma
      XOXOXO

  4. Tikarma,

    This is a delight.

    A beautiful love poem – a tease certainly – but a love poem nonetheless.

    And I love the way you have intertwined love for the music, love for the musician and the musician’s love for the instrument – they are all part of what makes the experience – Wonderful!!!

    And I bet the next time Jamie goes on to the stage to play and you are in the audience, he will have a smile on his face!! *Grin*

    I am leaving this with a smile on my face.

    1. Hi David,

      Thankyou very much for reading and for your lovely and kind response. πŸ™‚ I’m really glad you enjoyed the poem so much.

      It’s always nice to be able to put a smile on your face. πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you enjoyed all the musical metaphors and the tease. It’s good I think to have a playfulness in wriitng as well as love sometimes. πŸ™‚

      *Big smile* I’m not sure he needed confirmation that he’s adored *lol* but at least yes, now he’ll know for sure theres one person who has his full attention. πŸ™‚

      I hope you continue through your week with many reasons to smile. πŸ™‚

  5. Interesting and bold poetry, Tikarma. I found myself lost in the chords and relishing the boldness of the one who would say, “I am going to make love to you tonight / You don’t know that yet.” Even though doubts arose within the one uttering those words I was still lost in the rhythms of the poem and its meaning. I realized everything was going to be alright when I saw the same words, “I am going to make love to you,” finally and lastly. Very much enjoyed the poem.–Jerry

    1. Hi Jerry,

      Thankyou for taking time out to read and for your most kind comments.
      I’m really glad that you enjoyed the poem and found so much to enjoy about and within the poem.
      I guess when you know…you know! πŸ™‚ Love can create a strange boldness.
      I don’t know how long the romannce will last. I never used to be someone who dipped my toes in these waters.
      I’m relishing it while it lasts. πŸ™‚

      Take care.
      Tikarma

  6. Wow tiki, i need to catch up on your blogs, that was amazing (also the pic is such a good one lol)
    I do love reading your poetry, and enjoy it so much. Ive always been one for writing poetry that rhymes (which ANNOYS me when i write, especially when you end up with words like orange lol)
    But yours inspires me to change, you truly write from the heart, from your muse, and what a truly beautiful heart you have

    1. Hey Kym,

      Awww thankyou so much for your most kind moving words. *blushing* I’m really glad you enjoyed this poem so much. Glad you liked the photo too. It’s one of my favourites. πŸ™‚

      I’m really touched that you enjoy reading my poetry and that it has inspired you. It’s very much my life and along with my painting and drawing what I’m dedicated and devoted to.

      Not all my poetry strictly rhymes sometimes it’s the rhythm of the poem itself not so much the words that rhyme.

      The stanza “she lies cossested against your heart…” took an hour to write alone.*faints* *lol* It take a lot of work sometimes finding just the right words, but it’s worth it I think. πŸ™‚
      When it comes to oranges and the like I use a trick called eye rhyming where you write words that look smilar to the eye even though they sound different. It tricks the brain into believing the poem rhymes more than it does. πŸ™‚
      For words that are a little kinder to the rhyme I also use the trick of ‘sounds like’ rather than trying to find words that actually rhyme.

      I hope you continue to enjoy writing poetry and thankyou so much again! πŸ™‚

      Take good care
      Much love to the family
