Fate and Infatuation

Fate and Infatuation

A Poem by Crowley
"

A little squishy Monday stuff....

"

A gift for you and the way you tell me I am whole and worthwhile, that smile penetrates
I adore the way you stretch to reach my thoughts instead of letting them come to you
I made a comment about the way a stray dog is singularly focused on finding food
You said that same dog would starve to death for just a little kindness and love, I smiled

It is in your nature to draw a blanket of comfort and desire about the shoulders of your love
Underneath that giving tree, the one by the lake where you look into the reflection to find your words
And they shine, oh God do they shine, I feel like I have a pocket full of new nickels, my coin collection
Every time I see your face it reminds me of the  bright lights on the midway and their illusory shimmer

I saw you for the first time and said hello
You looked at me and asked if I had a light
I carried your smile home and had dreams
And awoke to an understanding of fate and infatuation

WOW! WOW! And WOW! Blows my socks off! I see you're on a far wander & might not be answering promptly (no worries). Such seriousness is rarely seen from you, but much delighted in, as we gobble up your sweetness. Who wouldn't want to be the special lady you share your life with? I love how your sentiments are carefree & not crafted. This feels sensually organic. Very happy for you, since it seems pretty clear this is autobiographical! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

i think a lot of people would starve to death for some affection...
it's a shame these days that people have to choose between getting needed medicine and eating.

but wow...perhaps i would give up both of those for some affection...yes, i would.

i really like your line about carrying the smile home...
nice stuff, Crowley...

...those sighs do say it all, without words. No apology needed...we're friends!
First verse snared me Crowley- a poetic description of a soulmate, of love as it should be. Your purity of imagery -Joyful, childlike, celebratory,ardent- the “ infatuation” of love-with love...A million fireworks seen in the depths of an eye. This is the beginning of it all written lyrically, poignantly in the authentic stream of consciousness delivery that it comes with. I know you have been there my friend, as have I. Brilliant write.

Fate and infatuation. A dangerous dance.
"I carried your smile home and had dreams
And awoke to an understanding of fate and infatuation"
Woman control all things, maybe, men are like dogs begging for a bone. I enjoyed these words my friend. Made me think this evening.
