Yearning In Desire

.

“And this gray spirit

yearning in desire

To follow knowledge

like a sinking star,

Beyond the utmost bound

of human thought.

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

opine

your interpretation

what should be

not what could be

emotional tic

tears for every occasion

a heartfelt response

feelings that reflect instincts

sensations keeping life real

.

Poem:

.

amazed to see dancing elephants
not your usual vision of elegance

minds that create wonderful fantasy
learning your own meaning of insanity
excessive pride leads to vanity

is there really such a thing as normal
the happiest are those who live informal
the young do not have an exclusive on vernal

forget resentments, let go and let God
there isn’t a soul that is not flawed
to those who are due, stand and applaud

the winners always think positive
leaders communicate in the demonstrative
you can never be too old to be cognitive

for only the best, profound respect is reverent
gloriously unique, everyone is different
know that this world is absolutely magnificent

awe struck by the breaching of whales
a joy to be entertained by fantastic tales

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
