Stupid? - Poem by Kelly Kurt

God, I’d like to hold her
It has been a long, long time
Cuckolded, divorced and alone
Seldom even thinking of warmth
A picture came across my view
A woman with large brown eyes
Quiet, sensitive and deserving
A commercial on TV
Why did she affect me so?
This paid actress on the air
I know it wouldn’t be
Couldn’t be
Shouldn’t be
But for a sort time, I build castles in the air
Recalled youthful desire
Imagined a connection
Invented a past
Anticipated a future
Is that stupid?

    If you've finished with brown eyes, send her over here. Sounds like a good fantasy in the offing. Mine seem incredibly compliant. Perhaps a swap?
    By the way, I made amnesia buttons years ago and got this Spanish lad to decorate them. Can't remember his name. I think he had a Blue period once, a bit depressed, I guess. Some guy reckoned they'd be worth a fortune.
    Trouble is I can't remember where I put them. Any suggestions?

    Got your Email. Thanks. Happiness, to me, is a theory. I am more than fine with content.: -)

    No, not stupid in the least; merely honestly human. I understand.
    Very poignant poem Kelly. Your words are always a sincere pleasure to ponder.

    Thanks, Smoky. I had long ago stopped even considering thoughts as these. But a picture on TV stirred a remnant

    Not at all. This is absolutely fair and heartening to have youthful desires:
    But for a sort time, I build castles in the air
    Recalled youthful desire
