Calling All Potential Wanna Be, Sugar Mama's

Thinking of beautiful precious Goldie Hawn in Overboard while day dreaming....
Scratching our head as making a list knowing, we are merely his infant trapped amid
An old used body why else would they portray such that, their gerbers festive spoiled child ?
My twinkling if twitching nose held high be the sky; racing past her palace doors marble mistral floors
Silver stools his golden pools; flinging love's pampers without a care so joyfully unto the air; her, savoir-faire.

He Has Potential

What is love the idea of testimony of
Your form,

I’m fascinated by your love

Chemical of a blink of a eye it that type 
Of connection,

I’m fascinated by your love

If love was a solar eclipse I say every one has been hit by it once,

I’m fascinated by your love

If love was a song I be the lyrics to 
Catch each beat of you heart,

I’m fascinated by your love

If the world was ending I guess I would ask want did she say,

I’m fascinated by your love

Because today I put out a book in three different forms,

I bet she say that boy has potential.

My Loves' Potential

      I have never met anyone on whom I can pour out the love that my passionate nature 
bestowed upon me. My feelings are strong and new, and are in that state in which the 
mysterious law of human emotion requires that they should find an object on which they can 
alight and rest. They rest on you, not by reason, not by calculation; they rest on you 
because they have. My love has flown from my chest to find solace in you, either 
independently of my desire, or so closely united with it that it is not possible to say whether I 
love because I choose to love, or whether I love because I find myself loving….

       My love, in departing my chest, sought solace in you. But fear, loves repellant, hath not 
allowed its entry. And I, poor wretched soul am I! I have lost my heart to one who trembles 
to accept it. My blood ever flows through my veins, my breath comes steady, but my heart 
ah! My heart is bruised; It beats a sore purple, my days are overcast, my smiles, vacant. He 
grips my heart in a painful grasp; I wince at the pain, yet revel in the holding.

       But the day is soon coming when I shall be liberated either by his will or my own. I shall 
not dwell in captivity forever. Rather, I will break these bonds and be free of a love that does 
not deserve its title, or he will realize his cruelty and set me at liberty in either the freedom 
of his arms, or by returning me to the sovereignty of my loves’ potential.

The Potential for Love

Excite for the opportunity,
gracious of the chance.
For the possibility, to discover,
our connection, in romance.

In hopes, of us, finding,
the aspirations, of us, to gain. 
A relationship, where all, is shared, 
through our happiness, and our pain.

However, with there, being risk, 
in each others reflected credential.
We can never, be truly afraid, 
to seek, our true, love potential.

Potential Fulfillment Lost

Finally… Found the one just needs waiting a minute
Words used, questions asked, finding her history, wants, needs
Not touching physically, yet finding a spot in the heart and mind
Like seeing the moist, green, luscious valley through the weeds.

Yes… Losing your self in thoughts of what might become
Knowing time must pass before the present is clear to see
Forgetting the presence of the mountain that must be moved
Realizing my heart and mind are being held in captivity

There… The plan is set the time is near
Only one more piece to make a perfect picture
Waiting on the news, heart is racing, mind is chasing
Praying, checking messages, waiting on the future

Slam!!... The door is shut with a vengeance
The picture is left unfinished, broken in fact
Heart breaking, mind searching, thoughts fading
The potential is lost to another uncontrollable act.

you could be
my dream come true
you thrill me with
that thing you do
my blue sky and morning dew
the one who fit's
my glass shoe
with these words
i write to you
i hope my love
comes through and through
never to get over you
till i hear the word's
I do. I do
then you'll be
my dream come true
and all my love
belong to you
