“BEFORE I NEVER GO & AFTER I COME!” a poem, a.k.a.: “My Back Hurts!” May 9, 2019 (Thursday)
O – – – – – !* seeps-through-your-bones, through-US, and-I-feel-so-good!
Isn’t-that-trite? Well, yeah! but no-one-really-could,
Describe-this-sensation-with-words! You-could-say: “IT’S NICE!”
[You-know: I LOVE your face! I love it twice!]
[I’m in love – with-how-you-make-me-feel!]
I want you for-forever, for E-ternity;
Perhaps-because I-think-you-might give-me im-munity,
From being so stupid and terribly drunk!
And FULL OF YOU and – full of “spunk!”
And WHY-am-I-writing-this? BECAUSE: Your love flows,
Through me! and-gets-into-my-hands! and-this-is-what-it-doe-s:**
IT BABBLES! It goes – on & on,
Trying to describe – the drug you’ve got me-yawn!
It’s a drug called LOVE! and-it’s-NATURAL! and-it’s-CLEAN,
And it comes from – The Prettiest Girl I’ve ever seen!
And I wonder which censor will tell me what Community Standard[s] I’ve violated now,
Because: Every KNOWS: I’M-just STU-PID! I-AM- a-silly-cow:
I’m chewing my cud,
About: HOW O’s* WITH YOU,
SEND ME INTO “HAPPY,” a-happy-hue!
A HAPPY VIEW! A HAPPY S – – -*** –
And I-don’t-care-NOW if-I-feel-blue,
BECAUSE IMMORTALITY IS IN YOUR EYES;
I want YOU – E-ternally! and – For-ever!
Thank YOU – for-ANY CHANGE-of-weather (whether!?)
– No, the “O” does NOT stand for Oprah, but GOOD GUESS! 🙂
** – 🙂 – Deers! female deers!
*** – No, the “S” does NOT stand for Serendipity, but GOOD GUESS! 🙂
- Henry Lawson ~ Australia
- For every bird there is this last migration;
Once more the cooling year kindles her heart;
With a warm passage to the summer station
Love pricks the course in lights across the chart.
