The See You Smile

By Ashleylister @ashleylister
OK, purple prose, yeah.
Firstly I looked up 'prose' or as I found out, to just write normally. Then I looked up 'purple' which returned various information sites talking about color. I figured this was not the answer I was looking for, so I typed in 'Purple Prose' and found that it is a piece of writing that is exaggerated and over the top, over flowery or over told.
Then it dawned on me, this week is national by a card week or Valentine's day. This, to me, obviously meant over the top, loved up to the max, romantic prose (see I can use the word now)
So, using my muse as inspiration, I started writing. I think I've written more of a poem to be honest however, it is very much something to be delivered with emotion in a performance with more ham than a pig.
Whatever it is I'm pretty sure I got the purple patches right.
To See You Smile
To see you smilebecause of me.Not to mock,nor to sympathise,nor to stand over me with grandeurcontrolling my every movement by the sheer whim of your thought.
To see you smilebecause of me,my wit,or my charmor because you simply knew I was alive and saw mebestow some kindness on a stranger for nothing less than your approval.
To see you Smilebecause of meand hear the singing angelsignited in to the song of a thousand heavens by the delight radiated from your facejust from having the smallest, most minute, insignificant thought of me
To see you smilebecause of me,is to see more than this or any universe has to offer,is to be encapsulated by a moment the expunges all light except that which shows your face and blesses my eyes with a power far greater than the creator himself
To see you smilebecause of meIs all I ever need to live for.Nothing, not even the greatest of all the foods and winescould ever be more intoxicatingthan to see you smile,because of me.Colin
