Hijack-tuation

I woke up

Like it all happened

In a dream

 

We went out

To do the wash

 

Just a regular

Thursday night

Only difference was

That he was there

 

No one ever offered

To help me fold my panties before

Let alone a man

Let alone in such a public place

During a first time meeting

 

I should have been offended

Most often would have been

But it was the way 

He...

Was

 

Is

 

Wtf I don't even know what I'm saying

If only he hadn't asked me for my phone number

Or if only I hadn't given it to him

 

If only he hadn't called

And plastered me

Up into this floating bubble

Dimension 'BLISS'

 

That unforgettable kiss

Sent the world around me 

Twirling into wherever I am

And then...

 

He left

And his scarf stayed

So I know he'll call

Because it's one of those

Expensive ones

 

Doused in a cologne

I have never smelled before

Or if I did

It wasn't his

And it sure

Didn't send me here

To this nirvanic plane

 

The only thing I can

Wonder is if

I'll ever be the same

Or...

Waiit a minute...


 

What's his name???? !!!

This is a poem that gives an example about how fast "it" can happen....and we hardly ever think it's what it is. 9 times out of ten peopke think it's falling in love. It's falling alright, but it has little to do with love.

...cologne and phermones... shoulda named it cologne and phermones... ;-)

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

You have no idea...talk about

You have no idea...talk about "warming my heart". Really, thank you and you are so welcome. That is why I prefer to put my stuff on the web rather than try to sell books, Smoothie.  You never know who it may help.

Sounds like a scene from a

Sounds like a scene from a movie. Some romantic comedy. Names can be overrated. Oh and I love this song and the entire album it is from. And it was pretty cool how you spaced the words. Nice Nightlight.


Long days and pleasant nights
