Irresistible urge to plant a kiss
upon those sensuous pallid lips,
while listening to the priest reminisce
about a life in constant eclipse.

Oh why did he die at the very beginning
of the penultimate episode?
I wanted him there to the end and winning
the battle with his cousin - that toad!

From silver spoon that ushered him in
to the Reaper's final swathe,
he's been here buried under my skin -
in his essence I constantly bathe.

So what comes next for Ryan Gage
now Louis is dead and gone?
Wish I had courage to slip backstage
and interrogate his hangers-on.

And what on earth will become of me
now The Musketeers is finished?
Guess I'll be reduced to the epitome
of dreamer with all hope diminished. ;)

I am taking some time off now, as I have just begun a new college course. 
The workload is huge, so I fear I won't be writing much over the next few months.:/
However, I will post and visit you as often as I can.

Wishing you all a great summer (well, the rest of it!).:))
I will miss you all...xoxoxo


  1. Hi Ygraine..beautiful and so lyrical..I can feel the movement in your words, like a dance of language and energy! How intriguing a poem, sparking many fantastic images in my mind!
    I will miss you,enjoy your new course, wishing you many sparkles and enjoy the rest of summer ...and hope you can squeeze in an Autumnal poem in the months ahead!! I look forward to your return!
    Shine on sister-kindred
    Have a most magical day, thanks for always adding magic to mine!!

    1. Oh thank you, dearest much!
      This was just a little tongue-in-cheek one for a change (I thought maybe I'd been getting a bit too serious recently LOL)

      Thank you, yes, the course is going well so far. The work is demanding, but I'm really enjoying it.
      I am really missing everyone though...there is so little time at the moment to visit and write.:(
      Still, hopefully, when I've properly settled in I'll have more time to myself! :)

      With you in Spirit always, dear Kindred Sister...and wishing you a magical day!

      Big Hugs & Warmest Blessings xoxoxo

  2. You are an enchantress with your words and a dreamer of the heart. You are a magical person of the soul...and a Druid who watches over all.
    You are a true friend that I feel connected to though we've never met. Because you share your dreams and magical thoughts here and I feel as if I've come home.

    So beautiful, dearest Ygraine~

    Big Hugs and Lots of Love

    1. Oh WOW, that is truly amazing!
      Dearest Jan...I feel I have always known you too. It is as if we have had a deep connection that had endured through many lifetimes...a true and deep friendship!
      And that makes me feel SO blessed...

      Thank you from the depths of my heart.:))

      All My Love & Hugs xoxoxo

    1. Ha...I must be the maturest student on record!! lol
      Not sure just how much these brain cells will take on board, but just had to give it a go!
      Been really missing you too...but I will drop in whenever I can find a moment.
      I couldn't stay away from my brilliant Blogger friends for too long - I'd get withdrawal symptoms!!

  5. A very fitting heartfelt response to entertainment that now must be replaced.
