My Personal Cocaine


I’d love to swim in a sea of you,
Or Better yet
Your private sea.
For it’s quite amazing
how I feel nothing,
Unless of course it pertains to you.

You're like a stimulant without a pill,
A drug upon consumption
And its funny how when you leave
My nose bleeds a little.

    wow wow wow... (again) - this is not about lovemaking ALONE but also about sensual VERY intimate being together.... VERY good. (Report) Reply

    The nose-bleed metaphor has a certain poignancy - later, the physicality of love's expression moves beyond mere coke-like addicition. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    This is absolutely fabulous David and described exactly how having someone love you equally, makes you feel! I remember it well and can say that all adversity that I met along the way, was nothing with My Personal Cocaine by my side....love is a wonderful gift. Very inspiring too it seems! Smiling, having just finished my final exam and am a free as Tai can be. great first read of my day. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
