Please Color Me

Please Color me 

Sad and blue

Before there was you…

Standing there,

A smile Warm and True,

Your eyes soft 

Shiny Cobalt green,

Your body boldly

Curved in poetic preen.

My luggage loudly 

Dropped to the airport tile 

And you laughed shyly

In my wild-eyed guile.

My only thought

Was in meeting you, 

And I stumbled 

Warily to your side

Knowing not what 

I might say or do.

In front of you  

I stood and my

Voice betrayed me…

With gallantry gone, 

I pulled you to me

And kissed you 

With all the passion 

I could muster…

Stepping back from 

My hasty affront, 

Your eyes twinkled

For a moment,

As if waiting for a sign…

Then, hastily you spoke:

“Your place or mine?”

We

Have

Been

Together

Now

For

Forty 

Years,

And,

These

Days,

We

Only

Travel 

By

Rail.

Author: Website: http://brchitwood.com - B R Chitwood - My Mission: Writing to Discover Me

I'm a young man in an old man's body, trying to catch up to myself, trying to find pieces of me I left back in a disconnected youth and the early years of manhood. I'm a stereotype of many in my generation who can play the 'blame game', yell 'foul', and 'let's start over'. But, we are what we are, the sum of all the scary kid-emotions we experienced, the gin mills and piano bars that became our sandboxes of pleasure - lotus eaters of the best (or, worst) kind, the love affairs that did not quite settle us down, the sad poetry and songs written in bars and motels along the way... A Dreamer! A Wanderlust! The world needs such fools as we to write our books, our poetry, our songs, to offset the madness that plagues the soul. I've written fourteen books, over three hundred blog posts, in search of those pieces left somewhere in many parts of the globe. You can preview my books on the next page. There's even a Blog page...all my posts are not showing on this recently created blog page, but, if you want to read more, go to my official blog site and check out the archives: http://www.thefinalcurtain1 Writing for me is therapy for the soul.
