i wonder dearly as i beam radiantly with pleasure on a late night daydream light will i ever get the chance to hold your warmth for once or will i just keep longing agonizingly for the thought of seeing your waking smile how much longer can i hold this admiring love i long foretold to you and to the world?
For David’s Weekly Prompt. Punam is the poet host this week, so i shouldn’t miss this…
Day 24 of NaPoWriMo…Today, I’d like to challenge you to channel your inner gumshoe, and write a poem in which you describe something with a hard-boiled simile. Feel free to use just one, or try to go for broke and stuff your poem with similes till it’s . . . as dense as bread baked by a plumber, as round as the eyes of a girl who wants you to think she’s never heard such language, and as easy to miss as a brass band in a cathedral.
his perfume smells murder in the coming even from two blocks away you’ll be churning.
his built reads like a “danger” sign when crossing a bridge under renovation.
he carries a tone of excitement as crazy as a tornado crashing a building.
and his eyes, oh! his eyes its burning like a California wild fire.
not to forget his love is red flag waving war and distraction.
an absolute peril to a woman craving for affection.
