Born

Born

A Poem by Clyde du Coeur
"

Originally penned on 22nd February 2006.

"
Whenever he looks my way
I struggle to play it cool and not fall.
He tapped a top C while walking the other day
Then he turned to see if I stalled-

From his presence? I tried to hide it...
But I wonder if he predicted it.

It just reminds me of that time
when he embraced me and kissed my cheek,
Telling me all sorts of wonderful things
so that I could only answer 'monosyllabic';
I
FELT
SO
WEAK.

If only I'd known I was born for that moment,
I wouldn't have wasted my time living in the past.

Clyde du Coeur
More of a poem to be read silently than read aloud perhaps. You decide.

Well Done!

As a bloke, it is sometimes odd to learn that we have the power to please and that our presence might be of any consequence whatsoever. Then there are other times when we know exactly what effect we have ... My feeling is that those who are unobtainable wield the ultimate power. Thought maybe those who don't actually care for any of it are the ultimate winners. But what do I know?

If only I'd known I was born for that moment,
I wouldn't have wasted my time living in the past. - Fabulous!
