“PROMISES AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE!” a poem May 31, 2019 [Friday]

Promise me, My Darling -that YOU’LL ALWAYS “BE TRUE!”

Promise me KINDNESS, according-to-my-standards-on-you!

Promise me that I’ll NEVER get hurt – and that you’ll “read my mind,”

Being my “Knight in Shining Armor,” noble, truthful – and KIND!

IN OTHER WORDS: DO THE IMPOSSIBLE! and-PROMISE! Promise me such,

For this IDEA – of-just-being-human – I don’t care for too much!

Transcend existence! Take “God” by the hand,

And-be-the-perfect-“time-keeper,” for-my “Celestial Band!”

FULFILL THE IDEAL – WHICH NO ONE CAN REACH,
And, when you disappoint me, YOU’VE FAILED! [but,] I’ll-never-preach,
About judgment and condemnation – because-we’re ALL-TAUGHT SO WELL,
About-how-those-who “miss the mark” must, [of course,] go to H – L L!

“Suffer your-JUST-DESERTS, Ye Sinful, Faithless Ones,

Like infidels-atheists-pagans-and-Greeks and, [as-we-know] The Savage Hons!!

Promise me to always affirm-my-ways – of social justice and decency,

And life-as-I-know-it (for-us) will-be [quite] tolerable – as far as I can see!”

POSTNOTE: I’ll do it, of course! Everything that you want! – – – Because I so love you, and I am the runt! – – – “The runt of the litter,” who-must (thus) bow and bend, – – – to the never-ending wishes, which (that’s right) never end! – – – I-wonder: IF there’s a world? where demands aren’t so great? – – – To transcend existence – and never be late? – – – To fulfill every wish, and always smile pretty? – – – I wonder; I wonder! Am I Walter Mitty?
