DAY 1: holy shit i love you.

Pimp My Lent 2012/Day 1

A perfect picture from pimptress Jen Pasion prompted a poem of passion… 




this crazy divebomber jerk back up at the last minute

l-o-v-e love

this take a breath and take the plunge

and scream and scream and scream and scream

and still come back up for air laughing


(well laughing til you cry)

gutbuster laughter locking eyes and laughing

and tumbling over and over and over

wow is this even possible how is this possible this

love love love love crazy love

made up of years of thrilling at the sound

tires on gravel

finally oh finally finally and the headlights go out and the motor stops

and the door opens shuts

meeting at the doorway falling backwards into the room

which is which whose is whose who knows who cares


the time all the times when there wasn’t ever enough of you

there’s not enough of you now and




did we deserve years and years of days

just like that

I hope

it all wasn’t

to make up for to prepare us for

todays that slice slip sliding away

this awful slow tearing

this twisted fracturing jagged breaking

this oh no oh no no no no

this dark current this grayness this mess pulling pulling pulling

curling around us and under us quieting us and deepening us

as I stop and listen for your next breath

ragged madness

I will run mad I know I will run mad

if you fall back fall too far behind beyond my frantic grasp

the good fight

the good


god the beauty of you

I see you

I still see you

and you are beautiful

holy shit

m.a.d. love   2/22/2012
