Hello poetry lovers.
Felt like knocking a little ditty up today, so here we go – hold on to hats/chili dogs/frocks/purses/poodles and/or paper moustaches because this one is going to be a real humdinger!
This poem was inspired by a number of things including the film Robocop
(indirectly of course, when he goes a bit bonkers – and that’s the only hint you’re getting!)
“Just a Phase We’re Going Through” by David Ellis
A grin made of cheese
Lovers dance beneath
Its luminescent gaze
Fragile thoughts, across the surface
Strong of arm, steps and leaps of purpose
Wind swept crater
We all need our space
At one time or the other
When we land on our feet
Might as well be butter side up
Howling like ancient wolves
The need to feed consumes us
Bonds are forged on nights like these
Whispered in ears, surreptitious thieves
Scholars, scientists, artists, explorers
Illuminating all of life’s shadowy corners
Naked eye eclipsed, a perspective mangled
A cycle that is spherically entangled
Getting caught in a whirlwind of time
Leaning heavily on a burdened brain
Smiles as big as crescent canyons
But no atmosphere/companions
Raw ingredients, knocked-off chemistry
A blustery, illustrious kind of bombastry
Slowly beginning to reveal its secrets
Until you’ve had your fill at nights
Now it’s over, you’re feeling blue
Not a miracle, we just decided to go
A symbol that all of our hearts knew
Just a phase we’re going through
There’s always time to embrace something anew

Nice tags darlin’
*Tips hat* – Thank you kindly ma’am – I had a good teacher and now thanks to you, my posts can be fun all the time, even when I am being serious 🙂
Indeed. It is always fun to laugh a little.
Lose the very last line and you’ve got yourself a masterpiece!
Thanks for reading and the flattering comment mate – I’ll tell you what, I’ll see if anyone else has trouble with that last line and if they do then I’ll axe the sucker!
“A blustery, illustrious kind of bombastry”… almost lost the poodle thereabout (alliteratively speaking).
Thanks for the comment – I’m not entirely sure what was going on at the point that I wrote that bit. I think I may have been having a Dr Seuss moment – the Doctor was definitely calling to me!
