That Luscious, Vicious Love

That Luscious, Vicious Love

A Poem by Brandon Wesley Mckay
"

Oh the things we think about at the bar.....

"
Here I am.
Sitting at the bar.

....again.

Drinking.
The same Newcastle
The same 1800,
That I drink every time 
I come out here. 

Bombarded.....
And 
Smacked around....

By the Guitar. 

That well loved Guitar. 

Scratch marks and fades.
Beaten wood grain.
Chipped and stained.

This Kind of Love is
Rare. 
and Brutal. 

This kind of Love
Is beautiful.
Beautiful all around. 

And as I watch
This guitar....
 
Slapped....

Hit....

Bruised....

I long for that
Kind of love. 

That luscious
Vicious Love.

I've a guitar at home. 
It's alone right now. 

I've not the 
Time
Or Passion
To commit to it. 

Oh, 
But if I could...
Put that much
Energy. 
And Emotion...

Into Anything.

An instrument. 
A painting. 
A Relationship....

Dear god. 
We'd be
Unstoppable. 

Hell. 
I'd be unstoppable. 

That kind of Passion....

My Brother plays 
Amazingly. 
I get Jealous. 

Funny how...
When I stop by....
He always seems to 
Pull 
That 
Damned 
Guitar 
Out.

Envious....
It's what I am. 
He will be amazing. 
In Life. 
In Love. 
And I will be
Envious. 

Envious 
And 
Proud.

It's an older one. I forgot I'd written it. Came across this written on an old bar napkin.
I was right about a few things. Most importantly though....

I really am proud of that guy.

Brandon, After reading this I quickly decided to send you a friend request. I hope that you accept. I find the rambling style you use in this piece to be very appealing and conversational. I try to achieve that stance in some of my own writing; sometimes it works, sometimes I can't MAKE it work. I have a feeling that I will enjoy reading you some more. So even if you decline my request I still have your page bookmarked and plan to return. I write under the name riki (my ferret's name) but my real name is Dan. take care...dan
