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

exposed

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

Dreams Do Show

.

“All days are nights

to see till I see thee,

And nights bright days

when dreams do show

thee me.”

.

― Shakespeare; William, Sonnets

music

mathematically perfect

instruments unique sounds

what do you hear

euphony

.

Haiku:

.

as front follows front

cyclical weather patterns

hot cold rain hot cold

.

Poem:

.

why is love such a common poetic theme ? ? ?
because love is such a hard thing to describe
philosophers go to great lengths to prescribe
but poets can explain the word in a dream

analogies, metaphors swiftly drip from the poet’s  pen
feelings physical, emotional and spiritual
mixed and matched with words lyrical
learned on the laps of the mothers of men

love is in the mind of the beholder
sensations essential to a time and place
objects or persons which we cannot efface
sentiments that grow stronger as they become older

thank you Shakespeare for the sonnet
for the purist it is truly mnemonic
