The Plunge of Love, a Poem

when I fell
in love,
spinning down
that vortex of ecstasy--

a fathomless pool
r u s h i n g
up
to meet
my plunging
body--

I failed
to understand
that
the exercise
required

underwater
breathing.

Well I'm just gettng neurotic about your highly charged and exotic words here - very sly and very brilliant - Someone once said - it's all been done , well I guess they haven't read this piece or any other pages here at your hubspace.

......and this reads like literary viagra, man oh man I really do need that first cup of coffee now, lol.

DIOGENES and EPI--

Apologies! You were both gracious enuff to comment WEEKS ago and I just got around to hitting the "approve" button. Very neglectful. I must admit I'm rather fond of this little poem myself.

Lol, now you know; the plunge could be dangerous hehehe. I love the part of 'underwater breathing'.
