Imagine! - Poem by Lora Colon

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!

    amazing! are you SURE that i did not write this magnificent piece of imagination? ? ? !

    more glorious rhymes as well. let me give it a try:


    No Strings Attached!

    Lora's is not the only one, oh no!
    I can follow her lead, this will show...
    you.
    Imagination is the name of the game.
    Try it yourself! Don't be so lame.

    Here is how I picture myself tonight:
    I throw on my shirt, one not too tight.
    I pull on my pants; my hips they hug.
    Now I'm set to go out & cut a rug.

    Down to an imagined disco i do go.
    The girls are hot; the beat is not slow.
    I grab a hot chick who's looking fine.
    For this evening I'll make her only mine.

    We impress the crowd with our dancing.
    I see that (at me) all the girls are glancing.
    I feel sorry for them. Maybe next time.
    I give each one of them a shiny dime.....
    to remember me.

    Between dances, my gal and I cavort;
    booze we drink & coke we snort.
    At two a.m. we leave the wild scene to go …
    to an all-night x-rated picture show

    We sit in a secluded corner of the balcony …
    where few can.....or even care to......see ………..
    what we are doing instead of watching movie.
    It was a night we used to call “most groovy”.

    The at 4 a.m. I drop her off at her corner to work.
    Her pimp growls and spits “You’re late for work”.
    So I toss him five C-notes to calm the bum down.
    Now he smiles and doffs his cap like some clown.

    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

    Fantastic, this voyage, and a truly charming one, like eating forbidden fruit without its consequence! (Report) Reply
