A Room #POETRY Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Will You Still Love Me #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #InLovewU


“Meet me at the moon.” 

― Claudia Carroll

A Room
By Diana Mary Sharpton

A chair, dresser, TV, steamer trunk and bed,
Four pillows on a king to lay her head.
Life occurs within these walls then vanishes,
In slow motion, like a movie that metamorphosis.

Sweet jasmine lingers, a perfumed mode,
In clothes, hung by color, where the sun was sold.
Opaque and secluded, shades always drawn,
Contains a perpetual atmosphere yet withdrawn.

Dust settles in thin layers as days pass into night.
Any change is entailed not contrite.
A refuge without statutory rubrics,
In a room, that bears her fleshly forensics.

It’s a place that hears her tears,
And knows the truth mixed in with fears,
It’s where she runs and hides,
A room in her name written to the side.

I have added a favorite video that speaks to my mood this morning. The singers are the brilliant group Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow. I have also added the lyrics for your reading pleasure.

"Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"
(originally by The Shirelles)

Now I lay me down to love you tonight
But will you feel the same in the morning light?

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Yeah, tonight the light of love is in your eyes, yeah
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Oh, can I believe the magic of your charms?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
(You don't have t say a word to let me know)
Oh, you say, you say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken, ooh...
When the night meets the morning sun?

Oh, love so beautiful
I'd like to think that you'd be mind forever

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
Oh, so tell, tell
Tell me now and I won't ask again
No, no, no, no
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Will you still love me tomorrow?
Yeah, yeah
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Will you still love me tomorrow?

Thinking about you...
