Hide And Seek

 .

.

“The same words

conceal and declare

the thoughts of men.”

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

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

Rise Up And Soar

.

“I do not understand

the whole thrilling verse,

but I love the way poetry

turns ordinary words

into winged things

that rise up and soar!”

.

– Margarita Engle

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

dare

to fly

to be you

rise up and soar

individual

.

Haiku:

.

birds rise up and soar

escaping the predator

survival defense

.

Poem:
.

who doesn’t like the challenge
the imbecile, the retarded
the emotional with too much baggage
the coward with feelings guarded

those from the gene pool discarded  . . .
dare to be a man among men
strong enough to take out the garbage
willing to be wrong every now and then

be willing to define your role
know that it is OK to share a feeling
understand that God gave you a soul
emotions are not for concealing

who gains from acting macho
double dealing with someones heart
a ghost who is sordid and hollow
an ego that is far from smart

be the man who makes your mother proud
a loving person who can care and share
stand head and shoulders above the crowd
a man of faith, a wish and a prayer

have a goal to make this world a better place
be willing to accept all of God’s grace.
