Updated on January 2, 2014

This distance between us is too much

This damn table

These damn people

These damn clothes

      Short and to the point, no bones about it. Just send everyone home, I need to close the gap now! lol

      Jomine, the point is that she needs what she needs and there are too many obstacles in the way.

      I like it.

      Hello, Alexander, Jomine, Cardisa, and Rosemary,

      thank you all for stopping by to read and comment on my brevity of thought. For those who enjoyed it and were clever enough to get the "point", regardless of whether I successfully conveyed it, thank you for that, as well. For anyone who may not be able to, I greatly apologize for my tacit inferences in lieu of overt sexual phrases. ~ Laura

      A touch on the reality of the moment I presume.... You are a poet who always had a point...I'll never forget that! WB

      Yes, Wayne Brown, reality dancing with frustration on the cusp of euphoria...Did I mention those damn clothes? haha!

      I've never known clothing, people, or furniture to get in your way for ANYTHING. Loved this piece, short and to the point.

      My dear Augustine, having the tenacity of kudzu lets one overcome great obstacles, and it allows for some very interesting entanglements along the way, as well ;D I'm so glad you like it.

      I don't believe the meaning or intent of a poem has ever been more clearly expressed yet had such impact in just four lines. I should have known that it would be you who did it! Great! WB

      Oh, Wayne Brown, if only I could claim some great epiphanic moment, but no, just good old fashioned desire in the moment? Did I mention those damn clothes?!

      And Perspycasious, yes, I've thought on several occasions I should have pressed the fire alarm and cleared the room! haha!
