Adult Companionship


Adult companionship I seek
Desperately to listen and talk
At least at the end of the week
Strolling on the wooden boardwalk
Day and night I teach and raise kids
Even on weekends in my van
Drive through, fast food, wrappers and lids
Beach day with children and a tan
Mature conversation needed
Over dinner or a smooth ride
Might feel like if we succeeded
Sweet dreams to discuss and confide
By the beach or in a movie
Cheering at a basketball game
Will both feel so very groovy
Who cares if you act wild or tame
Sitting or walking in a park
Making out, hugging – or hold hands
During daylight or when it’s dark
‘Cause you want to without demands

    Mine is the opposite, after a day's work in the laboratory hospital processing specimens I tend to seek refuge among children. Their innocence give me spark to get into life, and their company washes away my boredom and stress. Either way, human company young or adult excite our existence and gives meaning to living1. Wonderful poem, top mark. (Report) Reply

    Yes - I can imagine you would welcome a change of environment after being with children all week. Not that they're not great companions, but sometimes you just need to communicate with another adult, preferably of the opposite sex! Though you may be a teacher, you're also a woman. Nicely written, Ana!

    Love chooses no age limit, neither ones' desire for mature company. Bottom line is one enjoys each other at a certain level. Wonderful thought Ana. Liked it. High mark. (Report) Reply
