Writer’s Lift Wednesday #39

This is a writersliftwednesday blog, sharing the works of fellow writers, poets, artists (including photographers, painters, etc.) and persons random. All re-blogs will be linked appropriately to their authors and creators.

Writing is no easy calling and nothing easy was ever worth doing. Support each other by sharing, liking and commenting.

All poems this Wednesday 🙂

For those of you who are feeling the separation from family and friends this Thursday, please know you’re still in good company. Being good to yourself is to never know loneliness.

Of flesh cast in marble
Warm to the emptiness…

3. “Ink,” by Romantic Dominant via A Faded Romantic’s Notebook

I have a beautiful

fountain pen.

I imagine
writing my name
on your exquisite
perfect skin.

In dark
Midnight Blue
