Until You Do It - Poem by Altair Laahad

When you pick a whore
Under a bridge or at a deserted shore
And go for rumpy-pumpy
Aboard a rented car
Or at a no star motel of a slum
To wake up the morning after
In half guilt half laughter
And say that was transient,
It is reminiscent of the poem
You write when your muse swells
And gives you illusions of heavens or hells
So you give it to melt in the gleaming screens
While friends and the public applaud
In kind courteous diplomacy
Or at times in sincerity
Of the hungry wolf prowling for a dinner
They toil to hear your wit and the splash of a rhyme
On a golden pond, on an ocean or on a muddy ditch
And the night after you never repent
As you go for a second round
Climbing a rainbow to reach the stars
Or singing with birds and sighing with butterflies
And the cycle goes on,...
Until you do it, or you're overdone in it

    The key word here is guilt and poetry (this is not a statement) . How if one helps another. Although feeling guilty, he never regret, and do it over and over. Expose himself. He need, in someway, what defy him and maybe hurt him. Brilliant.
