A Peak in My Journal

Such an easy mark am I. A smiling glance, a wayward hand brushed against my thigh, a teasing flirt and I am alive. I must stiffen my resolve, but how can I, when even the word excites me. No, not the word “resolve” silly reader.


If you are going to dip into the truth of my mind you must be ready for the nasty truth of it. Not death or deceit or anything so sinister . This is real life for goddess sake, not some fairy tale. Oh but death of innocence perhaps, and the deception to one’s true nature. To that I will concede, but nothing more depraved than that.


Slip between my brain cells and you will find a steamy concoction of lust, fantasy and fear. Fear? Are you surprised reader? But true enough. Fear that reality will give way to fantasy and lust will have its day.


The day lust helms the ship is either the day she is run aground, reality rising up like rocks, splitting her from stem to sternum, or it is the day she is lost at sea. Drown between waves of pleasure, tossed about in foamy ecstasy, whilst pelted by a down pour of sweet words and wet kisses.


So now you see, dear reader, my dilemma. Do I choose the safety of the bay, status quo, reality, self control and boredom, or risk rocks for rain?

    A 100th hub should be some kind of marker. I've stalled for days knowing it needs to be randy in topic and more that just another one of my poems. So I've decided to cheat. Hubpages unpublished one of my best grossing...

That can depend if you are out looking for an adventure. The Randy I am familiar with is strong and can brave the brunt of any storm--grind rocks into pebbles and can turn the sand on its shores into diamonds!

"Choose the safety of the bay, status quo, reality, safety, self control and boredom- but occasionally get those rocks off I guess! Thank you Ma'am!

Randy,

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here...that you're out for excitement and pleasure? Sounds good and hot to me! I've just started reading a book about the philosophy of Jimmy Buffett...A Porpoise Driven Life...Fun, Sun, Sand & Sex...Pleasure seems to be the word of the day.

I say you should seek out those things that make you smile and the rest of life will take care of itself.

Take Care,

WE5

Hi AIDY! I wish I was as strong as you seem to think I am. I'm a survivor for sure, but everyone is at risk of a broken heart and losing themselves in the passion of it I think.

So you are a safety guy Micky? I wouldn't have guessed that. You look more the adventurer type.

Morning Alekhouse :) Wasn't sure hubpages was the right place for a stream, but this one is a little more poetic in nature. We'll see how its received.

Hello WE5! Its about giving into one's passions and losing one's self there and the risk of being hurt while otherwise distracted. Thanks for commenting.

The very dilemma of life. Risk is the fastest way to both ruin and success. Danger can the difference between color and monochrome or the ultimate depriver of choice. What to do, what to do. Flip a coin, roll the dice, take the road not traveled, stay home? Let those sails belly out and take you where they will or furl them, and watch from the bay your sisters' canvas as she sails three sheets to the wind, the foam of pleasure breaking across her bow. Tough choice indeed.

Thank you, Randy.

Tom when you put it that way there is no contest at all. Eat my wake! :)

I really liked this, Randy. I especially like the word play you implemented. Am I to believe you have a dirty mind??? Absolutely not! "Sweet words and wet kisses" will suffice you sexy (albeit sentimental harbinger of metaphors) vixen :D Kudos to you!

Dirty is relative :D Thanks for such a great comment. You never disappoint in that department.

I'll take your word for it CC, not unlike me telling my daughter to enjoy those cartwheels while she can. Not that I can't do them, but there are always pulled muscles afterwards!

This is such a saucy concoction! And the image beautifully mirrors the word play! I find it only natural to have such a stream of thoughts, yet I feel our fantacies are what creates our realities, no matter how many times we may get rocked by the storms of the sea, or bewildered in the gales of life. If we sit by the shore, frozen from motion; I think it would be crippling and highly unbearable. How would one survive without some randy behavior? :)

O.K., so we will dive in then. Worst case scenario we ship wreck and have to be rescued by hot coast guards. :) I too am a believer of what you think about comes about.

I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s 6 years ago

Yes! That's the ticket! We need to remember that there will always be a coastguard should one capsize... so let's charge it! :) Nice! I like it. a lot!

I am intellectually randy for your behavior and blind to all others at the moment - and what fine moments they are when I visit your vanguard of thinking because it's so hubdelicious the way you write!

Wow, so happy to captivate you Epigram. I am like the metaphoric onion, you make not like all my layers, however.

The choices of excitement should we run or should we stay and play in the waves or swim to the great abyss where the true challenges lay. I especially liked this verse> "Slip between my brain cells and you will find a steamy concoction of lust, fantasy and fear? A concoction of this sort always leads to adventure of lust and steaminess. You must have watched 9 and 1/2 weeks as well. Michelle and Mickey showed us the meaning of lust:0)) thanks for the share- time for a cold shower. lol

Yes many moons ago I watched it. And they came to the rocks... the price of passion.
