For Stormy's poetry contest, another love affair.
My love for you was left in a blue folder
upon a coffee table next to your sofa-sick bed
under two boxes of Oreo's and a carton of 2 percent milk
that had ridden in the front seat of my car
until just the right time, awaiting feet-sweeping
and soul baring.
I dance with my toes in the fire of emotion.

I penned a sonnet or maybe open-ended
and unrhymed heart-pained words
in an outpouring of hap-hazard and confused emotions.
I didn't know if you would read, or hear or feel,
so I kissed your blanket-warmed brow
and silently stole away.
I dance with my toes in the fire of emotion.

Would I live or love another day
or forever hunger for your words
and gentle kisses?
I seem to have spent a lifetime, lifeless,
and a smattering of love affairs, loveless.
Am I to deny friends
and end up friendless
because I lust for yet another taboo?
I dance with my toes in the fire of emotion.

My heart is again broken yet seamless,
a poem like bit of fluff torn from the sleeve
of my existence where it continually resides.
I wish the frost at your core would thaw,
melting ice dripping, dripping dripping,
a maddening sound of spring coming,
destroying the hell of winter once and for all.
I dance with my toes in the fire of emotion.

I am waiting the crash of symbols
or the tolling of a bell
as the litmus test of your feelings;
bearing a chad-edged and lined paper
written with a number two pencil;
I love you. Do you love me?
Check yes or NO,
and so it goes:
My love for you was left in a blue folder
upon a coffee table next to your sofa-sick bed.


The words are:
lifetime broken friends melting torn poem crash bell
