I’ve got a girl and she got me

I’ve got a girl and she’s so, so extreme
she’s outa this world if you know what I mean
I’ve got a girl and she’s so, so mean
she don’t really luv me as sad as it may seem

I’ve got a girl with balls of brass
she’s a real fine lady but she ain’t got no class
I’ve got a girl and she’s made of glass
she says it’s over and all good things must pass

fold me, cold me, mold me, told me
hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me

I’ve got a girl and she broke me down
she just laughed and said I was a clown
I’ve got a girl and she’s the talk of town
she threw me into a river of tears and left me to drown

I’ve got a girl and I thought she was the one
she was full of spirit and so, so much fun
I’ve got a girl and her phaser was set on stun
but now it’s all over and I’ve been left all undone

fold me, cold me, mold me, told me
hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me

vacuum packed and sealed in plastic

she was the warm tropical air
gathering her forces as if preparing for a storm
then she blew over me like a category 5 hurricane
from which nothing of me escaped harm

she was the sun setting on a moonless night
that left my world almost totally dark
and I was struggling in the cold to start a fire
but unable to find a match to even light a spark

she left me vacuum packed and sealed in plastic
forgotten and stored up on guest room closet shelf
not really a good feeling
in and of itself

my red rose

Red Rose

Red Rose (Photo credit: iProzac)

a once fragrant red flower
now faded
and scentless

dried, aged and withered
by the passing of so many long years
of drought and loss

brittle and crumbling
like a recently unearthed
ancient Egyptian mummy

yet her thorns
still have their prickle
and bite

and her touch
still makes me bleed
red like the rose she once was

find your soul mate

Soul Mate

Soul Mate (Photo credit: ahhyeah)

is it destiny in this mortal life
for soul mates to meet
or else we are forever forced to endure
a life that is somehow incomplete?

perhaps, I once quietly sat next
to my soul mate while riding on a train
or maybe we were star-crossed and never met
because she lives far away up in Maine

my soul mate may have softly sat
next to me while I was a youth in school
and I never talked to her
because I was such a shy silly fool

my soul mate may have walked by me
every lonely day I was at work
and I never took a moment to notice
because I was an unobservant jerk

as a result, we are both now fated
to be incomplete and alone
and I can’t even call her now and then
to talk about nothing on the telephone

so, I must humbly apologize
to the soul mate that I never met
and I can only hope that my epic failure
she will be able to forgive and forget

back by popular demand

The love bug (also known as lovebug, march fly...

The love bug (also known as lovebug, march fly, honeymoon fly, telephone bug, kissybug and double-headed bug) (scientific name Plecia nearctica) is a small flying insect common to the southern United States, especially along the Gulf Coast. It is most often known as a serious nuisance to motorists. Usually they come in pairs, but only one shown in this picture. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

once upon a time, in January of this year
I wrote a little humorous post in my blog
about an anonymous ecard scam I got in my email
but later I deleted it when someone got in a fog

and somehow thought that I had sent it to them

now it is back by popular demand
because people search for it on google every day
looking for the secret of their anonymous love
that has sadly led them astray

and I felt that I owed the truth to them

so, please don’t be confused
since, I am not the infamous love bug
and I only just posted about it
because it seemed funny to this old mug

and I don’t want to have to delete it again

she is the one

one

one (Photo credit: andrechinn)

don’t get me wrong
there are a lot of girls
that are a lot of fun

don’t misunderstand
there are so many that deserve
my desire to hold their hand

but she is the one, she is the one
she is the one that I adore
she is the one, she is the one
she is the one that I need more
she is the one, she is the one
the only goal my tender heart wants to score

don’t let me hesitate
it would be such a big mistake
if I don’t ask her out for a date
oh what an awful, terrible fate

because she is the one
the only one
the one and only one…

she is the one, she is the one
she is the one that I adore
she is the one, she is the one
she is the one that I need more
she is the one, she is the one
the only goal my tender heart wants to score

hidden hot springs in my heart

"Blood Pond" hot spring in Beppu, Japan

“Blood Pond” hot spring in Beppu, Japan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

memories of my love all wrapped up
in silky ribbons and bows
with all of her smooth edges and curves
inspiring my efforts at poetry and prose

the melodic sound of her voice once echoed
in my heart like a romantic symphony
stirring deep felt desires and yearnings
of a world full of infinite possibility

these are the kinds of true feelings
that never really go away
like a hidden hot spring in my heart
they slowly bubble to the surface still to this day

I guess I got carried away

Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach (Photo credit: Varin Tsai)

she was the soothing rhythmic sound
of ocean waves hitting
against a long sandy beach

each morning, I walked on the beach alone
with sea gulls noisily complaining
of my unwelcome trespass

finally, I sat down and waited
until the rising tide lifted and carried me
back home to the sea where I belong

6 of hearts

English: 6 of hearts.

English: 6 of hearts. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

sometimes creativity doesn’t come at all
but today I wrote six poems total
and as a result I’m kinda feeling
rather lucky and tall

they may not rhyme in the proper way
or say what I really wanted them to say
but they are the only card in the game
that I have left to play

so, now before I fold and the game is through
I’d like for Lori to know one final thing that is true
that I did it all because I was inspired
by true love for you

my muse, take 2 (by bellesogni)

English: Queen Marie Antoinette as Erato. Ital...

English: Queen Marie Antoinette as Erato. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Erato with her crown of roses whispered to me
tonight, why don’t you try to write something lovely?

put your passionate heart and tender soul into it
and unleash your fiery soul and ardent inner spirit

but I sighed that I didn’t know what to say
unless some outside inspiration comes along my way

so she sat next to me and played her musical lyre
hoping that romantic music would light my fire

but I only fell asleep in my easy chair
so, she finally left me alone in disgust and despair

or so I thought until she walked into my dream
singing to me that things aren’t always as they seem

she touched my stilled hand then stroked my face
urging me to rise, stimulating my nocturnal pace

from warmth and sleep she jerked me awake
the ideas came quickly, I had poems to make!

forgive this man, a mere mortal oh Erato fair
I know now that if I ask you’ll always get me there

for the rest of the night I wrote until all was right
then my eyes grew heavy in the pearled morning light

I thought it a dream until my eyes followed my nose
bringing a smile to my lips at the sight of the dewy rose

the love letter

The Love Letter

The Love Letter (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I sat down to write a romantic love letter
the kind of thing we used to do
long before the Internet and email
and all this social interfacing ballyhoo

in it I serenaded her with the music of my passion
with lyrics for her that I was burning to share
and I promised to sweep her off her dainty feet
with tender words to prove how much I care

I swore my unending adulation for her
and to prove that I’d be forever worthy and true
with a long list of the special things that for her
every day and night I wanted the chance to do

but, alas I had no name and no address
and no idea where to send my love letter to
so, I posted the love letter with the following note
“only open if you’re looking for your soul mate, too”

my singing girl

listen to my singing girl
as she sings a song for me
and as she sings a song
she drives away all my misery

sing, sing, sing, my singing girl
sing, sing, sing, my singing girl

and along the way
I hear her softly say
that she loves me
and now I’m so happy, that I could

sing sing, sing with my singing girl
sing sing, sing with my singing girl

sing, sing, sing
sing, sing, sing our song of love

I need you

The love of my life

The love of my life (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I think of you all the time
you mean so much to me
and I can’t get you off my mind
oh, how close to you, I want to be

like the Earth around the Sun
my world revolves around you
now, I’m a unstable spinning top
out of control and lost without you

I need you, I want you, I do
I need you, I want you, I love you, I do

all my hope for the future rests
in the blessing of your tender, sweet love
so, come down off that marble pedestal
that I put you up on, way up above

I’m so lost and I can’t believe
that the meaning of my life is now gone
I’m alone and hopeless without you
how can I possibly go on?

I need you, I want you, I do
I need you, I want you, I love you, I do
