Showing Up

Post by audiofool » Thu May 18, 2017 1:24 am

Under the stars tonight
I'm going to give myself away
without hesitation
to whoever comes my way

I'm sure she's warm
she's beautiful and kind
she appreciates my humor
and my prehistoric mind

she wrote the book on style
the very definition of class
she overlooks my faults
treading barefoot in the grass

it's a habit I suppose
I succumb to with ease
she's not just a pretty face
my place is to please

it's a familiar story
not exactly headline news
I think I've brought it home
how many ways can I lose?

under the stars tonight
I'm going to go all out
with no expectations
what else is life about?

I'm sure she's out there
waiting for a secret sign
wistful and watching
putting her ducks in a line

she wrote the book on patience
showing up old Job
seizing her opportunity
senses circling the globe

it's a compulsion
a flaw in my makeup
and if she's only a dream
I never want to wake up.

Pretty soon I'll have to rename this forum "Audiofool's archive" :lol: I want to truly thank you for your loyalty and perseverance in posting your fantastic pieces here in this little dark corner of the internet universe. :cool:

Thank you for you kind words, heinzs. <blushing> :oops: Sometimes an extended hiatus is a positive.

I appreciate the forum, and I do read others' work. Words often fail when I am struck by someone else's work posted here, so I seldom post comments. Nevertheless, there are some very talented poets and writers here.

I just wish I could conjure up a broader audience for you... but as long as you are "content" with the few who do show up, I am more than pleased that success is in our hands.
