Your Pool

your-pool

Dive in to that pool you call your crazy and tell me what you find

Give that animal a name and face that wreaks havoc in your mind

Does it speak to you in romantic verse or sing charmingly out of tune

Will it tell you to dance in perfect step or lack inhibition as you howl at the moon

Does your partner know when it comes to life

Can they see it in your eyes

Do they cherish it with warm embrace or dress it in domestic lies

Can you feel your wild and uncomfortable excitement and ride it as you should

Or do you sip your tea in perfect warmth only wishing that you could

If you feel scared, refreshingly alive and I make you slightly nervous

You may be right with those racing thoughts that seem to occupy your mind

Dive in to that pool you call your crazy and tell me who you find

  1. Alisa, beautifully and evocatively played. I adore this stanza as it hones in nicely on the choice before us:

    “Can you feel your wild and uncomfortable excitement and ride it as you should

    Or do you sip your tea in perfect warmth only wishing that you could”

    Although none of the words by themselves are exotic, their choice speaks loudly contrasting “uncomfortable excitement” to “perfect warmth.”

    I also love you choice of pictures, which boldly says, this beautiful woman will smoke a cigar (figuratively or metaphorically) if she feels like it and savor it.

    Have a great weekend. Save the tea for later. Keith
