Acting Like A Schoolboy



Love makes us men come apart at the seams Act like school boys dreaming young dreams Walking into walls, or in the side of a bus Oblivious to the perils, our minds turn to mush Don't get me wrong, it's the best feeling ever May I never wake up, wish to live on forever Sometimes our dreams can feel oh so real I wake up each up morning the love I still feel Like the greatest feeling, not felt e're before O'er the fields of love, my own heart does soar Your love means so much to this silly old duffer Never take it away, my poor heart would suffer Let's pretend we're school kids and start all over Watching the clouds as we lie in the clover! Love makes us men come apart at the seams Act like school boys dreaming young dreams © Jack Ellison 2013

    "...men come apart at the seams." Accumulated wisdom through decades of observation my dear friend! How right you are, only a good...seamstress can keep us together! Ha-ha! Beautifully done! See my answer to your comment! Thank you!

    In the garden of love, it takes 2 gardeners to make it grow & shine. The rest will come naturally. Very, very well stated here. :)

    Poor Dragon... call his name and his head whips around as he keeps on walking. Splat! I shouldn't laugh!... But Darn... The look on his face! The only problem is the house shakes and the wall plaster comes off, a little! I'll find a way to help him... Tomorrow!... Hey Dragon! Splat!...Snicker!... You'd think he'd learn! Silly Dragon!... I wonder about him... He chases me for calling him silly, but not for getting him to walk into walls?... Don't worry, it doesn't hurt him! Strange but true!
