My Emotions Are Hitting The Ceiling



Used to be known as Jester Jack Been recently writing about passion Feels kinda comfy in this strange new role Wondering about your reaction Funnies were why you all came to read And expected when seeing my name Might lose some friends with this lovey stuff Let's see if my role stays the same Maybe it's age, why I'm mellowing out Remembering my passion filled youth Those days of love wrapped up in a dream Those days of innocence and truth Life's made up of many different chapters Mine's been a contented fairy tale There's really no chance of anything changing Till this old guy gets older and frail At peace with the world, for a while now What a happy and glorious feeling One of the fortunate inhabitants of earth My emotions are hitting the ceiling © Jack Ellison 2013

    Jester Jack indeed! Oh this is riveting. I've been away too long from your work. I'll be on a trip for a week, so I'm going to read some more as well. I really enjoy reading your work--it's either heartfelt and touching, or extremely funny. And at timings a combination! I love your rhyming and your easy to read kind of work. Always, Laura

    Break the damn ceilings. Real love knows no limits. Its hearts will write upon the skies above. When it comes to the whole "might lose some friends" bit...in the words of Dr. Seuss: "Those who matter don't mind. Those who mind, don't matter". It's the way to live. It's why I "know" more people than I call a friend. You rock my soul, Jack.

    You sure have a way of expressing yourself that comes through loud and clear! A great big thanks for your very kind comments, Drake. You have no idea what they mean to me coming from such a talent as yourself! Love your Dr, Seuss quote! Thank you again, kind sir!

    I think especially the ladies enjoy your gentle side. I sure do. Let 'em emotions loose, Jack. You're a versatile poet and can master any topic. Well done on this one, my friend. Licia :-)

    Dragon keeps hugging too hard, so I got him a cuddle blanket... Don't worry it's fire proof... And the only thing hitting the ceiling is his smoke as I read him your poems, and a little fire, and a few sparks... and his tail is hitting the wall as he chills out, and I rub his tummy... Thankfully his cave was made for this!... LOL... Isn't he sweet! Grandpa Troll brought us some hot coco! The Trolls brought fudge brownies! Those guys sure know their yummies! We should do this more often!

    You are the SWEETEST my dear dear friend from Beirut! I detect a certain sadness in your words which I can totally understand given all the turmoil going on. My heart is with you, dearest friend! Love and warm wishes, Jack xoxoxoxoxoxox
