Shoot, girl ... You spin my synapses like a sugar rush The ways you look at me ... Like I'm a schoolboy smitten with his teacher Who spent the weekend picking and arranging wildflowers And just placed them on your desk ... Like you're the young Clara And I'm the valiant and proud Nutcracker Prince The Mouse King and his army, dispatched at my feet ... Like you're Audrey Hepburn And I'm a lost kitten that you've saved from the rain And tucked inside your coat ... Like I'm the genie, magical That you've just rubbed from a lamp And I must do ALL you ask of me, without question ... Like I'm the Phantom of the Opera And you've finally come to the realization That every note of every song, was for your aspect ... Like I'm strawberry-caramel croissant pancakes With whipped cream and white chocolate drizzle And you haven't eaten in days ... The ways you look at me ... How you spin my synapses like a sugar rush Shoot, girl ... So love me like you MEAN it ... For anything less - anything short of passion's prize Would be complete and utter ... Tragedy. ~ 1st Place ~ in the "Love Me Like You Mean It" Poetry Contest, Julie Leigh Rodeheaver, Judge & Sponsor.

Pow pow! Love this! It has balls! Well, ok, it has boobs. You’ve probably given away too much about your teenage (or adult?) fantasies here. But hey, who didn’t want to be Audrey Hepburn’s kitten right? Great ideas, delivered with punch my friend!

Oh what an awesome comment - I had a feeling you might enjoy this one, Nina ... your comments are always fun and weighty in my eyes. This was a bit out of my regular furrow ... and I loved doing it! Gotta get in a different frame sometimes to break the mold, lol. Blessings! :o) <3
