I'm still in the dark, where the sun doesn't shine, where no one has gone before
Inside,outside, upside down...I aint got what I was looking for...

It should have been love. Why should I care? Why should I wait shaking my head?
I just wish you were here in my arms... every second, every minute...enough said...

At the end of the day, I'll do the right thing...I'll forget everything and run
because tomorrow won't be late and the tears in my eyes will be gone one by one

    Very cool Rueben I hate to think even YOU can't find happiness, guess it goes to show being drop dead gorgeous and a romantic has nothing to do with happiness hmmm perhaps its the romantic concepts which are whamming you? Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    funny work!!

  1. Date: 9/2/2012 6:17:00 PM

    WOW! Had to read this poem about 4 times before it finally sunk in. I adore poets who challenge the reader! Your first stanzas are striking. Your final line is killer-good! ..."the tears in my eyes will be gone one by one." OH, YEAH! Excellent, Ruben. Best always, John

    Tap tap. First part of short story/novella has been posted. I had orignially calculated the length to be about 3,000. I think its closer to 7,000. Sigh. Too long. Well, we'll see. I was thinking of David today. I hope his wife is improving. He's dealing with the real stuff right now. This? The drama and snips, this ain't real. This is memorex, if you get my drift. People dealing with real issues and life and death situations all over the place. Ooops. LOL. on that happy note, goodnight! Cyndi

    Hi Ruben, I don't know, maybe i picked the wrong poem to read.. I see lots of typos here...... .............. LOL... got ya.... I was kidding,,, I like what you did here... David, is going to love your entry... PSSSS~ about the dare... I completed mine last night... I think, my writers block, is taking full effect now.. :-( :-( you should have seen my ADHD kick in,,,lol,,,I could not concentrate at all. I think your words are much harder than the ones given by the poets..xox~pd

    WOWZA! I am glad I read this at work as it made me wake up a bit. Hey how in the world do you have so many views? I haven't really gotten many reviews.

  1. Date: 8/29/2012 1:16:00 AM

    FYI, this is such a unique take on david's theme, ruben.. and the whole piece cries for good ole love... terrific!.. winning wishes and huggs!...:)

    love the poem, Ruben - so glad you translated as I can't read text messages, lol

  1. Date: 8/27/2012 1:20:00 PM

    Cannot read the text, but the poem is lovely, poignantly reaching my heart.

  1. Date: 8/26/2012 5:31:00 PM

    Sure looks like a winner..makes one wonder why anyone would want to read the TEXT message if they could read the verse aye? Light & Love
