Champagne_Shoes: Open Mic Night
« on: February 21, 2007, 09:20 PM »
Gift-Wrapped Smile Collection

Part One

The Wifely Smile
She smiles as
his fist cracks
her tilted chin.

Those bruised lips
curve to serve
each precise ritual.

How many
years
does it
take
to shape
the perfect
wifely smile?

Grace!!!  It's so good to see you back at Splash again.  I've missed your presence here.  I can't believe how beautiful your voice is....OMG!  I was totally surprised upon hearing the softness in your voice and the accent.   You are simply breathtaking.   :rose

That was beautiful, 'shoes.

You have a breathy and quite sensual voice. Reminds me of Marilyn Monroe.

Thank you for your gracious comments. And Cookie, thank you for your excellent instructions. I've wanted an Open Mic Thread at SplashHall for months. It is finally here. Please, Bittersweet, Xanadu, Seraph, Rg & Co. Let's thank Voodoo_Child for this Open Mic Night Venue and dance with one another's voices.

My dear Grace,
How lovely! How elegant! Your voice is truly made for spoken word poetry.
I look forward to hearing more!

The poem has such a sad note, yet, I can't wait to hear the rest of them.  You have a wonderful voice for reading.
