Hubber Crush

The Author of My Affection


I am in love with your words, they are like food to me
Hungrily I open your latest
I take delight in every line
Some, I lap up like like a thirsty kitten
Some, I savor, sucking the flavor from them
Tasting their meanings, rolling the nuances around on my tongue

Your skill and creativity inspire me
Each composition so sensitive, elegant and thoughtful
I am learning and I am laughing when I am reading you
Your mind is a beautiful intriguing thing
Your avatar, your sex, your proximity do not matter
When I have you here on the page, you are mine and I am bewitched

To be the focal point of your quill would be heaven
And to be your muse, sublime
If only you could find inspiration in my eyes
I’d sit at your feet while your fingers dance across the keyboard
I would wait attentively for your finished prose
And I would scatter your words across my bed and roll naked in them

I'm on my way out when this caught my eye. Anyway this is not so me. (I'm more known for my poetry and not so funny prose). Which kinda disappoints. But thanks for the "tell tale signs", I got it figured out and I say this author/hubber is the object of many a wannabee-muse :D

Your funny in your comments Cris. *wink*

And don't be so sure.

I'm not telling Tom.

I know how to give a killer foot bath Golden.

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

Wow, Randy.  So who is it?  You can tell me.  I'm your friend.  Since "sensitive, elegant and thoughtful" kind of eliminates me (darn it), I may as well suffer by knowing the true identity of the lucky f***er!  Spill!

Hey, Randy, stir it up, won't you? Laugh! Well done!

Ah but you are the focal point of my quill darling, and I'm sure your eyes would inspire me, but, alas, they are hidden. ;) (Couldn't resist! Sorry!) :D

Seriously, this is beautiful, and I also get intoxicated by words. Just the other night my kids were asking me, "Mom why are you rolling naked in all those words?" <sigh> I can only hope that they will one day understand the sensuality of skillfully written prose. ;)

Well done Randy. :)

I think I know of whom you speak :)

And if I'm right, hands off, he's mine LOL

Lovely.

I have to admit, Pest is quite attractive.

The choice of avatar is interesting, is it not? Like a hat, or clothing - something to hang one's identity upon. They parade across the front page, and the ones whom you've chosen parade across your welcome page. I always look for who's there with a sense of anticipation.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

I won't tell Christoph.  But I think they would be surprised as I admire them from afar.  Awe come on your sensitive and thoughtful!

Stir it up Elena? Who me? Never.

Pam, I should have used that "intoxicated by your words" Yours get me a little tipsy some times. ;)

Trish, so you think you know "him?"

Where is Pest? Tom I thought he'd be on here first thing to grab his trophy. lol.


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

Maybe last night in the 'Park was a rough one.

Ya think Momma went on a binger?

Hmm, her? it? a jackalope perhaps? :)


Christoph Reilly profile image

Pam: That's hysterical? Kids ask the craziest questions! Ha!

Randy: Did you name the bast...lucky guy yet? I want to beat hi....congratulate him.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Trish you can guess till the cows come home, I'll never confront them... too shy.

Christoph, wow, are you vying for my affections now?  Maybe I should take a closer look at you.  Can you write poetry?  or Sonnets?


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

I think momma's life is a binge.

Christoph must be writing a sonnet right now. I can't wait to see it...


Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

I'll get right on that!!!! In the meantime, do you need help soaping up your back?


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

Um, er, no thanks.

OOOooo. My skin is crawling...Uuuuggggggggghhhh!

Actually Christoph my back is getting cold, I was thinking of changing.

Thanks Amanda, yes practicing my feminine whiles.


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

And doing a wonderful job as well!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Why thank you Tom, flattery will get you every where with me!


Elena. profile image

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid

After reading the comments update, I can't help but say that I'm laughing and laughing at Amanda's take on this! I'd never have said (or thought) in a million years that you'd have the boys "dangling", actually quite the opposite! Ay ay ay! Guess one says it as one sees it, eh? Laugh!


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

That's right, Elena! Don't hesitate. Just go right there!

I wasn't going to mention the double entendre myself, but I'm glad you did


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Some times its hard to catch a double entendre.


Tom Rubenoff profile image

Tom Rubenoff 7 years ago from United States

They can be slippery.


Elena. profile image

Elena. 7 years ago from Madrid

Randy, hard to catch a double entendre... And you say that with a straight face, no giggling, no corner of your mouth twisted upward in the effort not to laugh? You're better than me then! Laugh!

Randy~ I loved this! It was like a mini chick-flick for us girls, and well... flypaper for the boys.

Nayberry 7 years ago from nayphat@yahoo.com

This is a lovely hub. I know how easy it is to become engrossed in the world of hubbing. You can find almost aspect of life here- brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, lovers, entertainment, and knowledge. i must admit that I have become intrigued by a hubber or two since I've been here.

Tootles!!!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Elena, Are you grasping something here I am not? Sometimes these things can be standing up right in front of my face and I miss them.

Amy, looks like I caught Tom! Not bad for a days work.

Well done! Words are very powerful. Weaving them together in a moving and/or meaningful way, that's an art.

Thank you for the compliment KCC! It means a lot to me

Shy? you? Is all this writing your alter-ego then? Are you a multiple? If I guess, would you confirm or deny? :)


Nayberry profile image

Nayberry 7 years ago from nayphat@yahoo.com

I think that there is enough a male ego running amuke around the pages already. Keep 'em guess'n and no one's head will swell.

Tootles!!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Trish, what do you mean by multiple? Like split personality? Don't guess my true identity on here, in case your right! You can email me if you want.

Nayberry, ok, we'll both keep em guessing. ;)


Pest profile image

I would have been here earlier but I had to put the home back up on it's blocks. I am curious as well! ;)


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

There are those who think its you Pest, being such an elegant writer and all.


Pest profile image

Pest 7 years ago from A Couch, Lake Odessa, MI

Well, i would be the hands down choice after all. But I aint all that elegant even though my style says otherwise.

PS: Some twisted pervert posted a pic of your naked butt for God and everyone to see!!! ... Kids these days!

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Constant are you referring to the "great" pic. you caught of me at the gas station!


ajcor profile image

ajcor 7 years ago from NSW. Australia

RB - so sensuous - all that lapping,laughing, learning,  sucking, savouring was quite breath taking but your final line was a stunner when you re-focused your poem from general to personal with "And I would scatter your words across my bed and roll naked in them" - thanks for this - clever stuff - cheers

 


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

ajcor, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Sucking is actually the word I agonized over the most. Its a loud, powerful, in your face, word to me. I almost didn't use it. But some how rolling around naked didn't make me bat an eye. Go figure.


ajcor profile image

ajcor 7 years ago from NSW. Australia

yep i think sucking and savouring are such powerful words and they caught my attention - raw really - glad you were brave - cheers


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

ajcor its funny how different words effect us differently. For me savoring is a gentle sensual word. So whoever is reading a piece is gonna bring their beliefs to it and kinda change it. In that way one author could be really strong for one reader and not another I guess. You have to meld in a way. :)


ajcor profile image

ajcor 7 years ago from NSW. Australia

I think you're right RB about word usage and the individual's belief system influencing the way a piece can be read and interpreted by the reader , but I also think meanings can change, be enriched for example, dependant on what words they are used with - placed near - it's all good....would you mind if I put your poem onto my hub poet's page? cheers


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Course not ajcor, I'd be honored.


ajcor profile image

ajcor 7 years ago from NSW. Australia

Hi RB - the hub was written in answer to a request ..http://hubpages.com/literature/DOES-ANYONE-WRITE-A...

Oh do kiss and tell Randy.Ok well how about a clue. Like how many letters in the first name. Ooooo the suspense....kills me...


C. C. Riter 7 years ago

I can knit the alphabet pretty well sometimes, but I ain't guessing on who you so well like. I like this one of yours though. 'Tis quite good I must say and unique. good job Randy. How have I missed this? Oh yeah, workin' on my book, ah wel, I finally made it and so glad i did too. thanks for a great hub.


Am I dead, yet? 7 years ago

I passed this Hub a few times and reading the comments. I agree with many here that this is certainly a 'motivating' Hub. Keep em' guessing.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

So you think you've got it figured out blondepoet? I would definitely tell if ever I was to get a kiss from them, but since they don't even know I doubt that will ever happen!

C.C., Blonde and AIDY you are all viable candidates :)


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

If you are inspired to write something for me I would be thrilled!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

I will hold my breath till then. I guess better go practice rolling around naked.


R. Blue profile image

R. Blue 7 years ago from Right here

Yeah right....like you need "practice" for that....LOL


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Oh, Blue you know I only "play" a tramp on hubpages.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

I hope I had sentences covering all the right places!

hot hot hot... I too want to know whoooo this hub crush is. : )


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA

My first guess was Pest, too. But the more I reread the original hub, the more I think it is deliberately evasive (read: evocative). It could be one person or it could be a compilation of hubbers.

It doesn't even matter who the object of affection is. This is a brilliant hub, RB. In fact, it deserves its own phrase (similar to ROFLMAO)

ROBNIW -- Rolling on the Bed Naked In Words


R. Blue profile image

R. Blue 7 years ago from Right here

Randy...I know you only play the tramp......darn it!! but you know she's in there.....moist with desire.


R. Blue profile image

R. Blue 7 years ago from Right here

Hmmmm....may have just got a clue.....is he changing?


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Lgali, glad you like my words.

Mella, I won't tell. But this person is worthy of my praises.

Ah Bad don't be envious, write me something pretty and you could be my next crush.

Mighty Mom, my own phrase! That'd be so cool. ROBNIW :) Evasive, me? This was about one person but applies to many. Truth be told, anyone who can string words together in a pleasing manner makes me weak in the knees.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Blue, I'm not touching that moist comment with a ten foot pole.

what clue? Changing? Do I need to write a poem for every writer who catches my fancy?


R. Blue profile image

R. Blue 7 years ago from Right here

Would you settle for a shorter pole????

Adam B 7 years ago

It's obvious she is talking about me...I get it all the time when anyone reads my hub entitled "Things that piss me off." It opens up the darkest of hearts.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Well I'll go read that one and see if it blows my hair back, so to speak.

Thanks for stopping in Adam.


Artisan Walker profile image

Artisan Walker 7 years ago from Springfield, Oregon

Wow, serious crush. I'm guessing it's Christoph, Adam (yeah, really!) or Cris.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

You don't think it could be you AW? Really?


Artisan Walker profile image

Artisan Walker 7 years ago from Springfield, Oregon

Nope, because only a few of my 'compositions' could be considered sensitive.  And Roommate Wanted is downright twisted. 

Ooo-ha-ha!

However ... All of Cris' are. Even his anrgy stuff. I mean c'mon - the dude's a poet. Literally!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Oh you think you are closing in on me do you AW! Yes I'm a big fan of Cris' work. Not his hate piece but the rest. And Christoph has talent coming out his pores. But there are so many talented writers Artisan, can you really narrow it down to these two. I just met Adam, so I isn't him even if he deserves it. Now I'm off to read your twisted piece. You were my first you know.


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

I think i will quit hub pages, it wrecks my head


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Oh Brenda does this mean you have a hub crush too? I recommend having multiple crushes at all times! Poems for breakfast, prose for lunch and sweet or funny stories when the sun goes down. :)

love and light - R


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

just made a jelly with a little girl, that was hard enough, no time for crushes, prose or funny stories....


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

What's a jelly? Sea Jelly? Jam?


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

dont you have jelly in your country, do you have trifle


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Ahhh, maybe you mean Jell-o?


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

well we call it jelly, but whatever, you serve it with ice cream


Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

Yes. It is Jell-O.


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

excuse me i have the packet in front of me saya strawberry jelly..... now who has it right....


Amanda Severn profile image

Amanda Severn 7 years ago from UK

It's all an illusion Brenda. They only think they're speaking the same language as us! I think Americans say jelly for jam.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

"Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle," Jell-O is the trade mark name here, but has taken over as the "name." We would properly call it gelatin but wouldn't serve it with ice cream, we'd serve it with whip cream :) We should have a hubber's pot-luck!


Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

Here, Jam has fruit in it and jelly doesn't and it comes in little jars for spreading on toast and biscuits. Jell-O uses gelatin and is made in a bowl or individual cups/glasses and can have fruit in it, and you can layer different colors. It holds together and jiggles. I looked up British jelly, and it is what we call jell-o (which is a brand name, so we call all that stuff made with gelatin, jell-o, even if it is not made from the stuff that comes from the box labeled, Jell-O.)

Try this jell-o website: http://brands.kraftfoods.com/jello/products/gelati...

and this site for jams and jellies: http://www.smuckers.com/products/


\Brenda Scully 7 years ago

gelatin is in it..... you from america R.B.

Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Thanks Justine. I guess I'll have to thank FD :)


Justine76 7 years ago

I want to. See, its hard to find people now, in this sea of writing. Im always glad when someone puts a link to point me in some sort of direction.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 7 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Ya, there is a lot more to sift through on HB than there used to be. You can look through this old hub's comments many of these writers aren't around much any more. They are some of the best too.


Justine76 7 years ago

I know, at the risk of a hi-jacking...due to personal problems this is my third profile..I WAS a fan of Golden Toad and Laughing Mom just before they dissapeared. :( It seems I joined at the tail end of HP's glory days. (Anyways, you dont have to keep this comemnt as its irrelevant to the hub..just wanted to say nice to meet you finally!!)


Randy Behavior profile image

This is my second profile. I still exist as my first, but she is a bit older here and well not so randy. :)

I love the love expressed for the written word which I share. I am not so randy as you but remember scattering my alphabet blocks across my bed and rolling naked on them when I was about four.I was so happy to know the alphabet but the blocks were wooden and jagged. Some writers still use those blocks.

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

You've been spying on me.... they help me spell! LOL, seriously.
