After the Hasty Lots

By Tony DeLorger © 2012



Love in all it's gloss and thrill,

betrays the mind with thoughts instilled,

of fantasy born of willful dreams,

at end reveals a lie it seems.



A mind embraced by hormone shots,

of lusty sweat and hasty lots,

in no way lifts a heart to dream,

instead appendages clash in reams.



Whiles hearts behind in panic wait,

'til waves subside and emotions ache,

when bodies weak from senses lost,

laid bare in shadow and what the cost.



Love alone can meaning make

of senses thrown for abandon sake,

its glory known when bodies still,

and people live and respect one's ill.



For love finds mark in deeper tides,

not thrashed on rocks in frenzied might,

but calm and warm in arms that care,

of minds as one in life to share.



Glory bound when all awakes,

a caring love that bodies ache,

and blissful moments in life abound,

a love as this is somehow found.

Thanks ImKarn; yes experience is indeed the fodder for a writer. What tales exuded from my expression, in sometimes obvious, sometimes veiled ways. Nonetheless my thoughts come from a mind that has traveled many a path.

I love the rhythm of this poem. It makes it so much easier to read. People have a lot of misconceptions about love, but eventually they learn to find the real thing.
