Hide And Seek

 .

“The same words

conceal and declare

the thoughts of men.”

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

hide

and seek

subliminal mind games

God knows your thoughts

politics aside

they must run

egomaniacs

Poem:

.

was it love or was it lust
my heart I could not trust
the primal urges exploded
my addicted brain yelled more
thoughts that I could not ignore
my gene pool overloaded

emotional needs never discussed
physical satisfaction was a must
the morals were completely eroded
fantasies and conquests keeping score
deeds normal people would deplore
to selfish needs I was devoted

I regarded myself with distrust
knowing what I was doing was unjust
I was the person to be avoided
came and went through the back door
rarely was I asked to do an encore
answers to my advances were pre recorded

no, not tonight, no, never, you slime ball
if I need a headache I give you a call
finally became tired of all the rejection
met a man who taught me to listen
with a new way of living I’ve been smitten
I’ve learned to communicate with affection

growing old has become a blessing
words of love gladly expressing
in the mirror I like the reflection
learning to love has had it’s rewards
making friends from this day forwards
universal love my only selection

Exaltation Of The Mind

“A song is

the exaltation

of the mind

dwelling on eternal things,

bursting forth in the voice.”

.

― Thomas Aquinas

saint

beyond kind

secret gift giver

his intercessions worked miracles

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

Cupid’s arrow strikes

the smitten don’t understand

is it love or lust

.

Poem:

.

sing a song of romance
love will give you the chance
for the one who receives your affection
mesmerized at first glance

the heart feels the inflection
the mind believes it is perfection
the whole world becomes satisfying
all things glow with a rosy reflection

passions arise which are gratifying
a steadfast devotion which is undying
love will give you the chance
don’t doubt, believe in the mystifying

love does not arrive by happenstance
God’s design includes all circumstance
