Hey hey – it’s Thursday! And you kids know what Thursday means right?
Of course you do – it’s two for one pizza night.
Sorry, that’s Tuesday.
So…..what the hell is Thursday again? Oh of course, poetry, what a tool I am.
And to think, I’ve only been doing this for weeks.
This time round, your rhyming hero (no, not the Wu-Tang Clan, me, me!!!) has decided to write something a little romantic to warm the cockles of your heart (aaahhhh I hear you cry…….wait, no, are you actually crying? Surely my monologue ain’t that bad…Sheeesh!)
So, please let me unveil this labour of love and I hope you all like it enough to comment.
Thanks for stopping by friends, as always I remain your humble scribey scribbler – enjoy.
We’re Not Chasing Rainbows Anymore (by David Ellis)
Entranced by her measured, wayward glance
A romantic bullet shoots deep into my heart
While I’m vulnerable, exposed, a target
She’s a gazelle frolicking in the forest
Bathing in this electric atmosphere
A mysterious creature with an agenda
Falling madly in love with her vibrant nature
Dangerous when ardour is the negotiator
Her arm brushes briefly against mine
Soft as a feather, tethered, entwined
The nape and glorious shape of her neck
Makes me shiver, quivering on the vine
We gather our drinks to aid courage
Smiling a mile wide, while our eyes collide
Hearts fluttering, erratic butterflies
Diving headlong into this tumultuous ride
Babbling like brooks to each other’s ocean
Ties that bind, drive our lustful emotions
Speech flows errantly, frothy, no longer raw
We’re not chasing rainbows anymore
Fragments of our once empty lives
Now filled with colour, texture and spice
Peppered, wild, on fire, invoking the spirit
Dirty essence of aloneness now banished
Will this relationship serve its purpose?
Take us to far away, exotic places
Seeds, foundation, potential are all there
Ingredients required for a thrilling adventure
And if change were to rear its ugly head
After years passed, marked, full of promises
Seize each other and don’t look back
For time is the enemy of a bitter man
If you revere her, the world is your oyster
Remember what brought you here
Let her love refill your endless reservoir
And I guarantee you’ll adore each day more
Or your money back
