The Birth

Your presence within my sphere
Is utterly enlightening and true
It is nice to realize the blessings of life
Are the very words you engrave on my heart

I trust your heart is filled with gladness
Supported with positivity and gain
Terrestrial rains sh*t glitter at me
As bursts of chuckles saturate my brain

I am moved by a humorous plight
Of words flying like heroine-addicted chickens
Clucking and pecking at Charles Dickens

I have become this nonsensical buffoon
As my pride rises like an off-brown balloon
Only to deflate in a fit of guffaws and mirth

Ever since you appeared on this earth
There was an unexpected birth

    At first I thought you were talking about a person here but after reading the comments below I figured it's rather a feeling you're referring to. So I hope you are enjoying this new experience in your life. (heroine addicted chickens made me smile though!!)...;)

    I believe I was referring to the birth of a new feeling, or rather a birth of an unexpected feeling that I haven't experienced for a long time. An individual in my life sparked this feeling of course. ~Laura I'll probably mail you about it, cause I dunno if you'll get this reply. Take care. :)

    this is a very unusual poem. It rhymes in many places, so it can't be free verse. It almost looks like a sonnet. Very interesting one. And funny to think of rains shitting glitter at you!!! So who was this unexpected person?
