A Stream Of UnConsciousness

without a pen i bleed my poetry on this pad for all to read you know me i write too much without enough to say that's how my love works and who i am i won't quibble about the bill i'll pay even leave a generous tip from the tip of my toes ten in all to my arms reaching for the sky and if by chance i overreach so what i'll take the moon and the sun too there's no risk if it doesn't burn without risk safe is just a place imagined there's no jazz without a blue moon no hearty laugh if you've never felt blue let's skip the intros run the bases hit that home run on our first date i'll kiss you an eon hold you on my chest whisper in your ear i'll make you laugh promise to bring you back once the ecstasy of us peaks but don't worry like a gold yo-yo or even a trampoline we'll bounce back and return to euphoria catch our breath careful not to break the string or miss the circled spring you can only have it all once you understand 'nothing' we're born with it but without the wit to understand it me i held it in my hand until i was old enough to throw it like a boomerang and every time it returns it's you i always knew bliss isn't forever just the length of your kiss from my first breath i was convinced there'd be a long last sigh as long as it's the love of two my love for you your lips for me our horizon is not a straight line just the only line i crave so bring out the bongos play me a beat and let's dance into eternity a series of lives each one unique and always it's you and me one more go let's breathe May 24 2017 armand

    How am I supposed to describe such overwhelming good poetry with mere words? It's divine ?

    Armand, this is impressive. I read it a couple of times first, then I listened to your audio. And just as it is with music, the reading audio gave it incredible depth.

    Just one word.....WOW! Mere words cannot explain when I heard it read and seeing it written. What can I say? What a wonderful and well written piece. I am inspired.

    Hi ARMAND, Congratulations on your Poem Of The Day accolade, it is much deserved with this excellent write. I was captivated from start to finish, following each stanza, drinking in the scenes created by your words. You are definitely a wordsmith Armand. This has to be a seven and a fave. Your friend....Mike.

  1. Date: 5/25/2017 9:29:00 AM

    You really poured out your heart. My favorite lines are: there's no jazz without a blue moon, no hearty laugh if you've never felt blue. Congratulations.
  1. Date: 5/25/2017 9:09:00 AM

    This left me absolutely speechless. All I can say is that it is a very well deserved PotD and it's going straight in my favorites. A 7 and beyond, of course:) Amitiés

    You're the man w/the unconscious stream rambling, going off to elevated enlightenment. Turn the light off when you leave, please. Ultra-cool, hip poem, Armand. Well deserved POTD. Love and peace always.
