“Sir Guy: Pure Poetry in Leather”, a poem by Gratiana Lovelace, 8/04/12 (Post #244)

A tousled mane of black curls tickling his neck
crown Sir Guy’s  noble head.

His brow knits in longing for his heart’s fulfillment–for a
feckless woman child fool, but he loves her still.

Guy’s twin azure blue pools of smouldering desire, sear us with his unchecked gaze–beckoning us to love him.

We long to run our finger on the planes of his roman nose, stopping only to marvel at its linearity.

Stubbly or smooth, his cheeks bear mute witness to his mirth, or his smirk, whenever his mouth answers in accord.

And Guy’s lips sometimes speak falsely,
when their only truthful expression is found in kissing his beloved.

His neck is all sensual sinew, pulse beating his life force;
holding his head high and proud–even in defeat and disappointment.

Guy’s broad shoulders and muscular arms and chest display a strength
that belies his inner tenderness of heart–cloaked in black leather to shield it from harm.

For this man loves as deeply as he lives fiercely.  And in Guy’s heart lives his love still.

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Mmm, a feast for the senses. Excellent multimedia presentation…poetry + pictures = pure RA art!


    • Hi Bccmee,
      Thanks for your lovely note! Richard Armitage and his storytelling is art at its highest level.
      Cheers! Grati ;->

      P.S. In a comment I made to a post on Inge’s RA blog “Crispin’s Eclipse” yesterday (http://crispinseclipse.blogspot.com/2012/08/a-birthday-countdown-in-pictures-3.html), here is what I wrote about RA’s artistic gifts as a storyteller and actor:

      “Richard Armitage always makes us feel the pain or joy of his characters through his sincerity and his humanity.

      RA’s masterful storytelling touches us in ways that provoke us to examine the emotion or struggle he portrays as a compelling empathic response we have to his characters.”
