evaluating you

without you if only for one day

I would have to struggle-glut on patience

tasting of your sweetnesses.

But should that minimal period extend into foreverness

I would become the sickened animal diseased by loneliness

beyond any other hearts help

worthy only of a quick death.

By now Rose you will indeed know me
I never mean any disrespect
My heart's always out on my arm here
I hope showing my true aspect

By now Rose you'll also know 'bout my
My frisky tongue-in-cheek way I play
Disrespection is not in my vocabulary
And will never be on WOL any day

D..take care.....

no disrespect Raj, Don, Leon, Devon, Do.Rothy, and Lisa, but without wanting to offend you or my open heart, I can admit that I regard this piece as a stop-gap poem

one that you have kindly proved suffices until I can kick start my more inspirationally productive machine into life, hence ( I hope ) my next offering.

In the not so meaning to be mean meantime, my praises belong to you all.

I don't have to struggle at all reading this great poem Rose. Love ( if that's the right word ) the animal analogy.

sweetnesses?. foreverness? You applying for new-word entries into the New-Age Dictionary Rose?

loneliness? Doesn't qualify. Sorry

Struggle-glut? Now there's a winner

Seriously, I liked it Rose......

Are you in lurv Rose?

You seem to have gone off your familiar path. A good thing I'm sure.
"struggle-glut on patience" -- so inventive.

Take care
