Hello my dearest friends.
I’ve been working with A Shade Of Pen again and we have been inspired to write another poem together.
A Shade Of Pen – check out her amazing blog here.
This time, she started off the collaboration, which is unusual, as I am the one that usually starts these things, so it makes a refreshing change for me this time round.
This is our third collaboration together and like all of my duets, they are so much fun! (As much fun without getting drunk and rolling down a hill wrapped in bacon of course. You don’t get it? I guess you had to be there)
We would appreciate your comments, so please let us know if you liked it.
Let the wordplay commence!
“The Insatiable Saga Of Love” by A Shade Of Pen & TooFullToWrite
As she finally let it go
She felt a huge pain eased
As beautiful as love truly is
Oh, how badly heartbreak scars
The love that they once shared
Was fragile at first, sharp, unrefined
Quickly gaining passionate momentum
Becoming big enough to consume them
So bad it hurts
That sometimes it feels
Is it a curse to be so amorous?
Sensually, the heart pumps love
Rivers, ebbing, flowing
To their deepest, darkest point
Tragedy of uncertainty
Tormenting us to the very brink
I feel lost, in thoughts
Of you and me
Can we go back and sail
On the waters that speak
Of times most precious
Special to us both
When it’s the two of us
My mind just won’t sleep
When you’re gone
My world seems incomplete
Only you can wake
My sleeping soul
Too long I’ve waited
Will the wait ever end?
Or do I give up and live my days
In a world of pain and pretend?
Want more? Blimey, you’re an insatiable lot! Well, how about the cream of the crop of some poems that I have enjoyed recently on a similar theme? Check them out below:-
“Insatiable” by the gorgeous legendary poetic machine that is HastyWords.
“Feel The Sound” by the prolific and very talented Edward Hotspur.
“Inflatus” by the superb storyteller and witty poet Sage Doyle.
“If Only” by another deliciously bountiful poet of extraordinary magnitude – The Mirror Obscura.
“His Name Is Sleep” by Australian writer and sensual poet expert FortyOneTeen.
“Dippy Egg” by thoroughly entertaining writer and poet Sarah Miles over at Supper & Syntax.

“Is it a curse to be so amorous?” Yes. Yes it is!!! Beeeeautiful you two!
Glad you enjoyed it Kim, I’m very fond of that line! Let me know when you are up for another collaboration 🙂

I think you did but it never hurts to tell me again 🙂

Are you sure? Lol
200 percent 🙂
Well that was double what I was expecting but it will do nicely.

I truly felt that one…
I kind of knew you would, like through some sort of ESP kind of thing

I knew it had something to do with your intoxicating scent
musk of desperation…

Thank you for the shout-out, sir! I appreciate it.
You’re very welcome Edward. I hope to do more of the same when I come across similar themes. Also do you want to do another collaboration? Been a while since we did our last duet but it was still brilliant. If you want to run with a particular theme then let me know and I’ll start something off and send it to you. Cheers.
I may. It’s more the ‘homework assignment’ thing. There are times I feel like writing, and times I don’t.
You seem to be doing brilliantly on your own! I’d just muck it up.
I appreciate that Edward. I’m always in awe of the quality of your poetry on Lyrical Anarchy. I can also see how it would feel like a homework assignment. I’ll still keep promoting your individual poems if they are a good fit for my themes and on Daily prompts too. If you feel like working together at some point then drop me a line and I’m sure we could create something brilliant, there’s no way you could muck it up, your stuff is pure class. And I will get round to reading your books soon, it’s high on my agenda 🙂
You’re awesome for saying all that stuff. I’m not sure I would agree. Sometimes I get a feeling, but a lot of the time I’m just stream-of-consciousness babbling.
It’s like noodling with jazz – the best stuff sometimes comes out of stream of consciousness!
I’m the Yoko Ono of jazz!
Now there’s a quote if ever there was one!
I’m the Axl Rose of rap! And I’m the Ric Ocasek of death metal!
Lol I’m the Temporary Secretary of Alternative Country
HAHAHA I don’t say this often but I literally laughed out loud. I got kicked out of the oncology department.
If you’re going to get kicked out of one department this year, might as well make it that one.
You should write movie reviews!
Thanks – I review movies on my Apocalypse Soon podcast but it is on hiatus at the moment – hope to get it up and running again soon. We also review TV shows, books and comic books. My problem is that every time I go to describe a movie I think of it like Don LaFontaine and the Honest Movie Trailers videos and just want to rip the mickey out of all movies, even the ones I really like.
It’s so easy because something is screwed up in all movies. Usually how something looks good but makes no actual sense.
Podcast, huh? Gimme a link and I’ll check it out!
I have two links to the podcast. This is the general one http_//www.spreaker.com/user/michael2402/ but I also have one on iTunes too which I will send in a sec.
When I get some time, I’ll listen to it a lot in depth. I haven’t seen Dollhouse yet! Spoiler Alert! lol
Cheers, hope you like it. With TV shows we only tend to watch the first three episodes, although later podcasts may contain reviews of the whole first season to give a more fully rounded view rather than just a snapshot.
It was pretty entertaining. I listened to about 6 minutes.
Thanks Edward. I’m hoping to make it funnier and more entertaining as we go on. It is mostly stream of consciousness babble, since I take hardly any notes before I look at something now and try to express my honest opinion about it. Hope it will catch on but it’s good practice and got me thinking about reading out my poems and short stories as a separate project.
Your accent doesn’t hurt. Lol… but there’s these guys who do Yogcast – my son watches them on Youtube- and though it’s about Minecraft, they’re funny. You two reminded me of them.
Let me try that again – the normal link is:-
And the iTunes link is:-
Happy listening to my dulcet tones!

Thank you but this duet is with A Shade of Pen and I’m happy that you like it. I have done some duets with Hasty Words but they are in the past – check out Seductive Nature, Equestrian Maidens, Perfect Imperfections & Seafaring Scallywags on my poetry page for all my Hasty Words duets 🙂
