Hello Pupazzovi! Thank you for stopping in and reading. xo
It ‘s a pleasure
Having had recent major tooth decay issues, this poem makes me ache! 😀 It is a beautiful drawing out of the “sweet nothings” saying. I hope this is not a poem from a personal romantic debacle. Welcome back!

You are so gorgeous, Rose! At least the debacles act as a fruitful raw material for your creativity. 🌸💕
Haha! Yes, thank God for my broken 💔, or whatever would I write about?? I love your new gravatar, Katherine… vavavavoooom! Thank you for your kind thoughts. ❤
Thanks Rose. The change was suggested by Ted Stutz a fellow blogger. I give him sneak peeks of the photos I’m doing now as he is such a friend. I think he chose well, if I do say so myself. ☺️
Ah, you’re lovely, Katherine. Very Audrey Hepburn-esque. Ted is a genius!
Brilliantly describing the death of adoration. Y’r a star my favourite poet.
Exactly… Yes, my lovely biker friend! Thank you ❤ SO much!! I was hoping to use one of your photos (the girl in the white dress jumping in the muddy water) for my next post please??
Of course..any photo any time. xx
A fine poem, fabulous metaphor for addressing the emotions of love lost. Really good to see you writing again…keep it going.
Oh, Stephen, how can I do anything but go on after your much anticipated visit and comment?! Thank you, my talented British haiku poet friend. xo

Hi Rose, metaphorically speaking you’re my favourite poetry flower, and metaphorically your poem reeks of decayed love, causing a deep chasm, leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth.
Aw, I dance every time you visit from Down Under! Wow. Those are amazing lines!! I’m melting. A million thanks, dear Ivor. You’ve made my evening sparkle. 💞 ✨
So nice to hear from you 😊, hope everything is going ok for you 😆

In the words of the great Barry White
Your sweetness is my weakness
As Sheldon Yoursly
I adore Barry White! Thanks so very much, Shel. I do believe I’m floating on air… 💖🎼
He’s the man
I’ve dance a few with him
I’ve danced and done other fun things to Barry’s music. 😉
I bet you have
Especially fun things
Its good to see you Rose
Its been too long
I know how life can twist and turn
But your a fighter….and I’m glad your back
I’m sorry, darling. I’ve missed you… and our laughs and collaborations. Life is crazy! Thank you. I’m trying. xo
That’s such a good image of melting in all its aspects…(K)
I thought you’d appreciate my collage, K! You are a master at them. Thanks for noticing. xo
Its all good Rose
We Write,laugh,and love
The words are all to important
As Sheldon Yoursly
You’re right, Shel. Words are so important!
Well good morning, I do hope you’ve been well? You’ve been sadly missed around here. I do like the poem and the use of sweet words to tell someone to sod off in a subtle way. Take care L…jc
Hello JC! Sod off… such cool words to tell someone who deserves them. Ha! You always have the best words. I’ve missed our chats. Thank you very much!
You’re a master wordsmith! Your recent creation is one of my favorites, and your spoken word is clear and precise. Nice job! ‘”Lover of sugar. Fool for cake.” — pure genius.
Thank you. Your opinion is something I prize highly. I enjoy our wordplay… it helps keep me on my toes — like a Merriam-Webster ballerina. 📚
Ha, that’s funny…Merriam-Webster ballerina…very clever.
Tutu funny? Ha! See what you do to me? 😄
Tutu funny, that’s hilarious!
Glad 2 C U back.
Great creativity and craftsmanship in the sustained metaphor of craving and decay.
Hello Mel! Thank you for your insightful comment. It’s great to see you, too!
How you spin your sweet nothings with sugar and spice and come up with an entrancing poem, although I also wanted to say enticing.
Delicious words, Karina! Always a pleasure to have you here. Thank you!😘
Ha! Succinct and clever.
Captivatingly described the decay and love lost. Good to have you back, Rose.
Many thanks for your visit and for reading my poem. It’s good to see you!
sure, so gooey!
and the next one
will be like tooth
Ha! So witty.
Your audio presentation is superb.
The poem ends as if cleaning the hearts.
Thank you, Shiva! I appreciate you taking the time to listen to my poem. 🌹💜💐
I listen; when it makes the heart to open
My ears stand up like the 🐇 rabbit’s
Soothes the soul that’s longing
Ahh – that weakness for sweetness is very tricky, isn’t it? So glad to see you back, Rose and with such splendid poems too! Keep it coming! 😄 😍
Tricky, indeed! Thanks again Sarah. 💜
Oh that rotting ‘sweet nothing’! Plenty of picking, mouthwash, and a diet! 🙂
People say you have been away from blogging. Hope all is well, friend.
I love the composition and it’s fill of dynamic analogies!
Thank you! I’m happy you picked up on the analogies.
Yes, The analogies of the sweetest kiss. And wow what a love it is when you cannot get enough… The love has got you going!!!
hii dear, what a beauty you have portrayed here… inspired 🙂
Thanks so much for your visit and kind words!
Don’t know how I missed this one, Rose. Deepest apologies. The poem is clever as only a Rose-poem could be, but that collage takes the cake. (Intended) Is that some sort of legislative assembly I see pictured? Politicians are known for sweet nothings, too. In any case, you’re a brilliant talent, my friend.
I’m happy you found my poem, Oggy! Yes, it’s crazy how politicians work the system. They tell the world how great and free America is; yet when refugees seek asylum, they find those words were all sweet nothings. The icing drips and become a prison. People using people to advance political gains. Thank you for reading in between the lines. xo
