Let's Get High

Let's get high baby
Underneath the stars
Travel each constellation
Set a course
Let's make love
While our bodies buzz
With the electricity
Of a thousand charged stars
Spilling from sky to sea
Let's just be
In love

A desire for the love of the movies. Fast and frenzied and fun. Lipstick messages of goodbye on the mirror. With a nod to old fashioned romanticism a la Hepburn.

Why can't it be more like the movies?
I like this aspect of your poetry Ana.

This was very well written. I love the imagery; it's very vivid and emotionally resonant. You were able to do more with thirty-eight words than some people are able to do in thirty eight pages. This poem had me feeling very nostalgic while I was reading it, and when I had finished reading it, I found myself wanting more.

Hi Frank, thanks! I'm happy this resonated with you!
Love the sense of giving in, of letting the drug take you over and feeling so purely in love. Very well written.

Thanks EnigmaMonster!!
This was very easily felt, and strong visually. I love strong imagery; there's no shortage of that here.
Being high on love, or high yet in love -- both feelings of immense strength. Your words show and tell greatly. Great job, Ana. I dig it. :)

well there certainly is no winter here, nope none, not even a hint... okay, I must have a bit of tease Papaya, it's hard to be serious all the time, a weakness in me.. sorry.. ;0) and I don't care if it's fantasy, hell what is more fantasy (as in fantastic) than love??!!

all of the poem is warm to the touch, hot on the tongue and a blaze for the heart... I also happen to really like: "Let's just be/ In love." hard to describe except to smile... but I guess what I feel here in these simple words is something rare and wonderful and not everyone gets to have this.. but when they do, stars do spill from the sky, constellations shine brighter and and and .... MAGIC (this is my word for the day)... hopefully you can tell I really enjoyed your poem Papaya..

The most natural high that praises the sky, 'tis love. Let's all hope or more of these nights, where stars dance for us and two hearts sing in perfect tune. I'll definitely be putting that on my shopping list :)

Thanks Rach! :-) yeah, love highs are pretty great...
This struck me in a couple of different ways. The "let's get high baby" line is a wonderful start to this piece. First I thought okay they are under the stars smoking and enjoying each other as lovers. But it could also mean, we are in love! You're love makes me high so lets enjoy this feeling together. Very cool piece.
