Because

I was a fool.

I was a fool searching for reasons why.

Reasons why I
Grin with sudden boy giggles

As if Karma was my DJ,
Playing cotton candy woven riffs
Of rhythmic whispers

Evermore

Everlong

I savor dark chocolate Peanut M&Ms
Tasting her sincerity
With each Pacific Ocean observance
Her dialect portrays within
My sunset smiles

I was a fool.

A slightly nervous kid
At his first Sadie Hawkins dance

Holding a paper cup 
filled with swirly colored punch...
...not spiked

;-)

Futile attempts to stifle these vibrating legs
From crippling my exhaling urges

I was a fool.

Searching for irreplaceable reasons
Why my smiles became
An 11 year old innocence

I smile.
I blush.

I embrace a new dream
Written on embossed bucket list

To hold her 

To hold her

To hold her
towards sunrises’ incipience

One day
With no reasons why

Simply

Because

    I think we all can relate to these feelings of carefree love. When we find someone we like, and they like us just as much. There is no greater feeling than acceptance. A terrific poem that was easy to read. Great work, Drake!...Thank you for the great comments, once again.

    The wink face in the middle... It tied it together I think. I really love this. Such a formal, graceful form of such a contemporary and modern plight. I could just picture this in my head, and that's a good poem when you can feel it, and see it. Love. Juli-Michelle

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 10/5/2013 8:32:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I'm so glad you noticed. It was a "sneaky wink". =) I couldn't agree more with see & feeling a poem. Thank you so much, Juli!

    'because' is reason enough when you are pubescent kids waiting for those first urges to be satisfied.!LOL.Not having a clue what it's all about..and at that age..sometimes it's actually more fun to eat those m & m's than the nervous reality of holding each other,much less dancing!! Some of my best memories, are also my worst memories...of those first dances..I'd almost get sick while doing my hair and putting powder on my freckled nose! (ps..I like my m' & m's without nuts !!!! LOL!! Love this!

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 10/5/2013 8:31:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    LOL!!! Hilarious, darling Carrie! I will not EVER disagree that eating M&Ms can sometimes be more of a simple pleasure. Definitely. :) Thank you so much for the charming laughs! =D

    You have inspired me, I may make a fearful poem based on the fears of two children at a Halloween dance wanting to dance with each other, but afraid of their conspicuous masks! Yes there is a lot of symbolism there, just as in your creative write my friend! But your write is also told just as it is as well! I really loved reading this enlightening poem Drake, such a delight to read! Great Work!!

    Sometimes we never figure out the reasons why.... why we can be so comfortable with one person, and feel like a nervous teenager again with another... lol Sounds like a good thing to have on your bucket list. Well written and nicely expressed poem, Drake. Best wishes to you in all your pursuits.

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 9/30/2013 2:06:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Indeed. :) Life is mysterious like that. The chemistry in how 2 connect with each other is certainly foreshadowing at its finest. That said, no "pursuits" here. :) Just writing things that come to heart & mind. Thank you very much, Becca.

    oh my stars.. this is delightful, drake.... it has a mad sense of glee both adult and childlike... then it sings with a joy that holds the heart kinda gooey and dances with it beneath the moon... the peanut m & ms part makes this even sweeter... " to hold her towards sunrises’ incipience" is a smasher... thanks for making my day seem so right...a treasure really, just because...:) huggs!

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 9/30/2013 10:58:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    WOO HOOO! M&Ms always makes things sweeter. True story! I'm VERY happy you enjoyed this. =D

    HAHA! I understood what you meant. I thought you were being all fancy French or Spanish dialects on me. :) The "11" was a coincidence...or was it? ;-) Thank you so much for stopping by, Julie!!!

    A smashing hit on the list of "Adorable" Your intentions are purely honorable To send you less than a hug would be deplorable, cuz this poem is amorable I love your heraldic true fable, and I love your generous heart Blessings, from, Mia Casa xxx
