"Out of Reach"

"Out of Reach"

A Poem by Steven


It was when I watched you
seize your pony tail by the base
and slowly pull it all the way out,
letting a thousand soft silk strands
fall back in place
piece by piece
while your slender fingers with
bright red polished nails continued
their momentum into the breeze,
as if every inch of movement
was pure sex to your hand,
that I decided I needed to know
who you were.

But you were
in the car behind me.
So instead,
I smiled
at all my mirrors.

how many times on the road, on an airplane, in a crowded elevator, how many times on the beach, talking with her friends, she makes a gesture, a slight unconscious motion of long fingers brushing hair from her eyes, how many times have we fallen instantly in love, only to be unplugged from the passing moment by any of those small heart breakers of chance...you have penned this so well that a hundred memories came and went, just like that...you're the man, Steven

That's one of my another favorites write! It speaks the heart. Very amusing moments you have shown LIVE through the verses of your very enchanting words. I don't think it's that easy to capture or write real moments in real words but you make it reading so alluring. You might have put your own heart on the paper even that's why ypur poetry is so breathtaking. Excellent. I'm sure, it's an instant fallen in love situation but I don't think, it would be instant WRITING this beautiful piece. Keep up the wonderful work! Very delightful to read this poetry!

And here I just thought all that swerving was just a drunk driver ahead. just kidding, I loved the sensual essence in this Steven, how tangible the moment was for you and how you made it for us. So talented, I love it when you shine like this.

Yes! So true, and how many times have we all done this.

The use of the word "decided" is interesting, because it indicates an active decision in a sentiment that's all about having one's senses suddenly slightly scrambled. I think when I get car crushes it's not a willing choice, it's more of a need that takes me by surprise. So I like "decided," because it's surprising.

I loved the images from start to finish. I am visual by nature so when words can invoke a picture in my mind so complete I know what it feels like to be there or better yet have a flash of my own memory evoked I enjoy it fully. I have had a few drive bys myself along my commute.

Rarely does one read a poem these days where every word is understood and felt, every image constructed to be properly visualized. No guessing game. for the average person, for every man and every woman. This human experience, was perfectly distilled. One of the better pieces I've read here in a long time. Nicely done, Steven.

this is fantastic. some of the best work a body can ever see is the normal day to day we all go through just through a unique or clever angle, and this shot is worth 1000 words. well done, sir.
