How Many Words Can I Read At A Time

I get so excited when I sit at the computer screen and see a poem that screams

It calls out my name and then tugs at my sleeve constantly

Moved by every word as my emotions keep stirring

I go from sad to happy to off the charts

Where my mind has never gone before

Into the darkness and into a world surrounded by knowledge

Seeking answers to questions I am too scared to ask

My thoughts constantly collide with each other like bumper cars on a wild ride

I can feel the persperation turn to desperation followed by frustration

A headache growing at an ever increasing rate

Then the twist of fate

A light hearted feeling has warmed my heart

The tears in my eyes have dried up

My eyebrows perked up and like a dog waiting for a treat

I bounce to the edge of my seat

Waiting with anticipation salivating constantly

I am not sure what has come over me

My head clear and my mind pressing for more

A quick laugh turned into a long series of chuckles

Totally amazed how one minute I can be staring into the abyss

Then the next holding my side from uncontrollable joy that has taken me over

That is how some words flow across the paper as smooth as toilet paper rapidly unraveling to the floor

Each word a new journey on an endless roller coaster ride

That begins slow and in seconds I am in shock all to know in a few minutes I will be dragged to a stop

      Movie Master I am not sure if there is an easier way.I take all my thoughts and toss them into a hat then shake them up and down until they get all dizzy and then I can pick and choose what thoughts I am going to use.Thanx so much and have a wonderful day!!!
