Perfect Imperfections

On a moonlit night he strolled for some fresh air,
When his eyes fell on her and he couldnt help but stare,
Dressed in white she reflected the silvery blaze,
He was lost in her beauty, she could tell by his constant gaze.
What does your favourite color taste like?
He asked in hesitation, a conversation to strike.
But silent she stood and made no way,
Asuming she was lost in him and had nothing to say.
He moved a bit closer, she drew back with a sigh,
As something bright darted straight across the sky.
A speed of light. A shooting star.
Burned bright revealing her ugly scar.
She looked at him and said, it tastes just like bitter gall.
If colour had a taste of any kind at all.
Feeling rebuked by her wit and smitten by her beauty,
He replied with a smile, even the moon has scars but it flaunts its beauty.

    Is ‘imperections’ a deliberate erotic choice — or perhaps a Freudian slip?

    1. Thank you so much. This question is very extraordinary as who would ever think of the taste? People normally associate colour to the different hues they see or the way it looks. But here he askes her about the taste. In reference to her life.

    Hi Tracy

    Hope you’re keeping well. I’m not sure whether you remember me, I used to blog at WaywardScribbles. But recently I’ve launched my new website and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

    Hoping to see you around.
