Mandolyn ...


selah, don't say la la la...


the line curves and i turn with it
following your happy trail,
the way God thumbs up the sky; white fluffy fingers
i watch with wonder....
calling your name inside my car

our volume is at seven
dare i go to nine and sing too high?
would that surprise the safety belt?

if i knelt before you
clothed your feet with my tangled hair
would you lift my chin
and say you love me without limits?
would you kiss me like a mad man,
or pause and breathe in my coconut scent?

the road swerves
and i love the virgin wind along my skin
my vision treads, sleek with each mile,
but i do not slip along the cliff
i do not look down at all ~

    This is a fabulous love poem.
    if i knelt before you
    clothed your feet with my tangled hair
    would you lift my chin
    and say you love me without limits?
    would you kiss me like a mad man,
    or pause and breathe in my coconut scent? - - - - - -Cream of the poem. (Report) Reply
