Warm as a love poem she greeted me
#1
Warm as a love poem she greeted me
Warm as a love poem she greeted me
Straight up and magnificent she contained me

With a kiss followed by a hug
So warm it regenerated my luck

Her enthusiasm made me stuck
Loving and caring she let the worse pass

She kissed the ghosts out
Made me wish for the soil under her feet

Her bed sheets her pillow
Her warm smile her morning hello

I have to admit, this is one of your better submissions.

But dude, seriously, hormones are a cluster fuck.

I know exactly what you felt in typing this poem. 

Ann McCarthy was a cheerleader in my youth that I pined after, chased and was ultimately rejected by. 

But I do get it. You see someone you are attracted to, and hope that they feel the same way. Realty isn't like that.

I think this poem is about his girlfriend so he probably knows that she feels the same way about him.

This one line says it all, "Her warm smile her morning hello"

That hello probably didn't happen because he drove over there to have breakfast...

...if you know what I mean

Not exactly. 

I have often mistaken a friendly response as acceptance. Sometimes those who don't want a relationship with you are polite about their rejection.

Don't get me wrong. Experience shows that also, there are times those you throw your hormones at, do respond. But the reality is, it isn't enough to project your desire for someone.

So, what...when Katie McManus told me, 'Not if you were the last man on Earth AND on fire', that was a rejection??

No. Just playing hard to get.

If you’d persisted you would have got to sink the sausage (or been arrested).

You know, there is one thing I've learned to appreciate about you Brian37; you have an amazing ability to duck the obvious and double down on your flawed premise.

What about my poem?


When I saw her burqa I thought my vest exploded but it was my heart.

She made me walk dizzy like untrained pilot in a cockpit that lost his smart.

When I slammed into her we both went down in flames and dust.

And now, because of love, in Abu Ghraib I must rust.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Ya know, it is quite an awkward situation. 

When I was young free and single, I cared not a bit.

When I was mature married and financially burdened, I was strictly monogamous.

Now that I am old, single and financially unburdened, I find myself in constant fear about the whole consent thing. I remain a red blooded male with all that entails, but I am damned if any girl is going to be invited back to my place unless and until some level of trust has been established. It simply is not worth the risk. Accusations get wheeled out of impropriety at the drop of a hat these days, and I want no part of it TYVM. The whole thing has become fraught from a male perspective.
