Borrowed Words

Ingenious was the gossamer fabric
That entwined the passion within our lives
For so often then you left me breathless
With insatiable love, insatiable desire

Delicious was the pleasure of my every breath
No demons haunted the love you did inspire
Pernicious malcontent lost in the past
Empyrean dreams searched for in the sky

A blessed home with children and hamster
The days of reckoning seemed so far away
Your luminescent presence was so uplifting
In ethereal dreams without a care we lay

For this was the dream, this was our time to be
But too short, too quick, the end came to pass
For pride robbed me of the words I should have said
Now borrowed words are all I have – no class

Artist's Description

I was lost for words a while a go and asked to borrow some. I promised that I would return them – with interest – and here they are. To those generous people who lent me some of their words – Kristin, Christie, Jane, Sally, Ruth, Kath and Pete – (see tags for their words) I thank you for the loan of them and was happy to use them – all except for the word Caboolture that is – I could not fit that in anywhere at this time – sorry Pete.
These are the words I borrowed: breath, breathless, children, delicious, demons, desire, empyrean, entwined, ethereal, gossamer, hamster, home, ingenious, insatiable, luminescent, malcontent, passion, pernicious and reckoning
