A place for us to present poetry about something other than Autumn!

Where is everyone?
No one even on line here.
We make our own times.

Okay.  Here's a poem about having a crush on someone:

Confused, not knowing how to raise
My modest eyes from downward gaze.
Perhaps if my blood would run less warm
I’d speak---not mumble--of your charm
In practice, I would look askance
And toss a subtle, sensual glance…

Yet we pass in corridors
My eyes never really meeting yours.

On Friday nights with other folks
Delighting in my clever jokes
I volley witty anecdotes
And dance the Hootchie Coo.
In all it’s quite a festive row
I prance with lampshade on my brow
“If only he could see me now!”
I refer, of course, to you.

Then the frolicking is over
I awake in curtained toga,
When I  see you in a while
Will I manage just to smile?
I’ll cower ‘neath robotic mask
And speak to you of daily tasks…

I’m nothing like I want to be
Hear that stammer? Could that be me?

At night when saddened in my bed,
I speak the things I should’ve said.
I compose volumes in my head
And pull you to my side
I whisper “nothings” off the cuff
And rest my head on pillow fluff.
If only that could be enough…
For worlds to collide.

Holiday season
Tense with due reason.
Family rivets
on hospital visits.
Pneumonia and breathing
and stomachs aren't easing.
This excessive tension
goes without mention.
Ongoing eating
to prep for our meeting.
I know my best trick
for feeling much less sick
about Christmas anguish
is simply to vanish.
I'd take one pill less
if there were less real stress,
But since we won't blow off
the gath'ring there's zoloft.
What have I got to give?
I need a sedative.
Guess I'll go shopping
On benzodiazepine.
But shopping mall Muzac
Is better with prozac.
And I know I won't falter
if I just have cymbalta
and nobody panics
when armored with xanax.
But since there's no chance I'll
Be able to cancel
Please fill your satchel,
Dear Santa, with paxil.
I'll sit quite content
'Til Christmas has went!
I won't deck the hall,
but I won't care at all!
Good will can cease,
If I just get some peace!
