'Closest thing to Crazy'


"That thing" that doesn't have a name but in the end it envelopes you It takes on a life of its own even your moods are determined by "that thing" try and shrug it off; it will cling to you – From its cocoon it will sometimes flourish into something beautiful "that thing" Sometimes elude you and me especially when all you wish for is for “it to happen” it has the strangest timing

    Undeniable truth in these lines, and we all know exactly what you're speaking of. Just so perfect in every aspect my dear... The sense of humor thing; when I'm around people erupt in laughter, except me. I be scared to tell them that I was serious, for not wanting to be an idiot 8 ).... I appreciate your support and I'm ok. Thanks for asking, Boo!

    What a beautiful thing that this thing could be! It does envelope you and take over you at times! It can do weird things to you, that thing can! I really enjoyed reading this poem this morning, very enlightening! May that thing bring you joy my friend! Great Work!!

    LOVE that forth verse especially, Wilma! And the last verse describes "that thing" perfectly...can't be forced, it just has to kind of come on it's own...great poem, my friend! - Tim

    Is this "the crazy little thing called Love?" YOu must know the song, right? This is very clever, Wilma. Enjoyed seeing you here. I have been up since 4 a.m with insomnia. BAD things happening for me since yesterday and hubbie going to ER. The bill is going to be staggering and the one good news, is I think it was all a false alarm. He will get his MRI results tomorrow but I think the stroke he imagined he had was just a sinus infection they spotted with one of the cat scans he got!
