When I Call

When I Call

A Poem by Crowley
"

Those days....

"

Your reach was telescopic that day, no matter how much I retreated, you saw me
Its like when you meet someone for the first time and your judgment is dead wrong
Thank the Gods that you had better sense than I did, that isn’t hard really
I have never been know for my practicality, only for chasing my summer dreams, silly

I relished those days on the couch where we watched funny shows and touched only our feet
Life has a way of magnifying those delicacies, only after they are gone, sepia, worn
I would give every roller coaster ride for those moments, the ones where we flew
Heavens how your hair looked and smelled after a shower,  my libido etched forever in strawberry

There is a telephone somewhere, the old rotary kind, it is black with too big numbers
To this day I search for it , knowing that it is surely around the next corner and then the next
When I find it, it will be a direct line to you and the days of mix tapes and red wine
And I will invite you to patio dance once more, your naked hips a forever prize, eternity

Big C,
Another wonderful meditative piece. Again, you do wonders with long lines. Yeah . . . it's wispy! feels good to me . . . I'm caught up in the speakers memories (you do know don't you that a memory is a memory of a memory is a memory of . . . ) I like the conversational style of this piece. You do this well . . . not try to be cute . . . just laying it out in a long breaths length. Congratulations C.

This is truly magical. I can't remember reading anything like this from you before & it feels like you've taken a big leap into wispy-ville! *wink! wink!* I'm writing a longer piece about a past passion from long ago & reading your whimsical imagery jogs my memory as to how these things looked & felt before life got too demanding & serious & taking over the forefront of our minds. Your details are delightful! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
