girl. baltimore. falling leaves

She was my girl
in Baltimore,
in a time of falling leaves
and dark gray water.

She was tall
and equine,
her hair was bible black.
Her lips were perfect.

Her body was warm
and shone when she was naked.
She moved like coming summer
on the breeze.

Her name was Annie.
Tho many years since I loved her
when she died I could not grieve her
as truly gone.

    I have to say this is stunning. The best music you have ever put to a blog (and I don’t like the music usually). Bravo!

  3. Agreed, agreed! The best music of them all.

  4. Wow, this is fantastic. Very descriptive imagery. The musical and nature sound accompaniment enhanced your words to great effect.

  5. How lovely. What a wonderful ode to Annie.
