Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Imagine!


Are you tired of your boring life
But unable to change the scene?
I have a plan, just stay with me
And I'll show you what I mean

Develop a vivid imagination,
There's not much else you need;
If you're not sure how to begin
Here's some advice to heed:

Let us begin by imagining
A forbidden love affair;
Don't feel guilty if it gets intense -
Remember, you're not really there

You hold his hand, you kiss his lips,
His eyes are so warm and kind!
No need to repent at end of day,
It's all happening in your mind

Show your love without restraint,
Make sure he knows how you feel;
You'll have nothing to confess,
Keep repeating: It's not real

Fly to the moon, go down to the sea,
Dance a waltz in a Viennese bar;
You're only limited by what you think,
You really can't go too far

You'd be surprised how good it feels,
Falling in love and running away;
You're not guilty of any wrongdoing,
No apologies - no need to pray

After you've tried this a few times
Life will lose its stagnation;
You'll feel better, nobody was hurt,
Kudos to your imagination!

    It's wonderful! I wonder how you could sneak into my mind and write these words!

    'You'd be surprised how good it feels,
    Falling in love and running away;
    You're not guilty of any wrongdoing,
    No apologies - no need to pray' - Sounds good!

    'After you've tried this a few times
    Life will lose its stagnation;
    You'll feel better, nobody was hurt,
    Kudos to your imagination! ' - Thanks! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
