Passion's Pride Poem by James B. Earley

Passion's Pride

Rating: 5.0

Alone.........I sit
By the fishing hole
Didn't bring..don't need
...No fishing pole

Just want to catch
A breath of air
..And reconcile

..For in my slumber
Though wide awake
Passion's pride
Fueled my mistake

..And alone am I
By the fishing hole
Didn't bring..don't need
...No fishing pole

There's just something about water that's comforting, relaxing, and mind-altering. What better place to contemplate life's choices and consequences? Nicely done, James. Linda :)

I love the elipses throughout your journey here James! it gives the reader the feelings of the urgency to just catch his breath and assess the outcome of his decisions in life. Passions pride, leaves us nowhere to hide. Thank you for pointing me in this direction. We all need our space, this poem reminds me of an old expression If wishes were fishes We'd all be down the chip shop! Yeah! who needs a pole? Smiling at you Tai
