WHILE I HAVE WINE IN ME

Updated on October 27, 2010

 

While I have wine in me~

Let me explain the deal~

Let me explain my feelings~

Still keeping it real.

 

I risk falling in love with you~

Even though reservations run high~

I risk always wanting you~

As we say our good byes.

 

Let me explain my qualms~

Let me express those girly thoughts~

As the wine still runs within my veins~

I must release my doubts.

 

I know my fears are too serious~

Yet that is what I am about~

I sense you were liking me~

This also leans me south.

 

I risk falling in love with you~

Though we are worlds I feel away~

I know this wine makes me talk unbound~

Much more happy and gay.

 

“It is what it is”

I said to you~

I am not sure if that is really what I meant~

I am in a quandary still~

As this letter I send.

 

My fears hold me back~

While you are uninhibited to live~

My uncertainties stifle~

As you are so willing to forgive.

 

So all I can muster~

About us~

Is not necessarily what could or should be~

I could fall in love with you~

Without all my baggage a muss and free.

 

While I have wine in me~

Let me explain the deal~

Let me explain my feelings~

Still keeping it real.

      Lisa, think befor you speak. Words are deadly weapons that "I'm sorry" don't make go away. FYI, I write for a living and I'm a published author. Perseverence, ability and tenacity gets you through life with or without a college education. Until September of 2012 I was an accountant. Guess what? I never went to college, but I have the apptitude and the ability. I've also been a DJ and an employment counselor and a whole lot more. Oh yeah, I forgot to say I raised my AHDH child by myself. The point is, don't judge until you've read the first few chapters and you're more perfect in God's eyes.

      No I haven't read your hubs that I can bring to mind at this time. I am sorry I took you so negatively, but I have found that people that have certain issues sometimes blow things out of proportion and do put others even unknowingly in the same pigion whole in life. I am sorry I miss took your comment. It did not seem it was on the body of work itself. Altough this body of work was one of much honesty and I ended up sending it to the person it was meant for. It was something I could say in the written word other than in person. No college does not always make a writer but does sometimes act as a compass how to give constructive critisism as well as accept it. Again either way it is given on the work of art and not the artist them selves. I will be reading some of your work so I may more understand you. I look forward to it. My last word to you for now is PEACE....Peace be with you & with me.

      Lisa, I was not judging - that is not in my character. I was speaking from experience! And college education has nothing to do with the souls that we are. I'm sorry I offended you. It won't happen again.

      And no, I was not brought up by drinkers. Now who's judging? You read far deeper into my comment than from where it came.

      Again, I was not being judgemental. Apparently you have not read my hubs. I am far from judging others, as I have no place to do so!

      Perhaps you're feeling something you're not admitting to yourself in order for you to respond so negatively to my comment.

      bravewarrior I wonder if you read the poem or just was judgemental because of the tittle? If so that is not a reasponsible or constructive critism of a writing but a judemental call based on mostly nothing. Shame on you as a supposively writer... Maybe no college back ground in writing. Sorry for my bite back, but I do believe you are out of line greatly!

      Oh I was undercontrol when I wrote it.. My question is bravewarrior why do you say what you say? an x drinker? Brought up by drinkers? There has to be some issues in your past that makes you so judgemental about some harmless wine? As well maybe you with out liquor in you should be careful what you blurt!

      Sometimes the wine (or beer or liquor) that unleashes your unspoken self can come around to bite you in the ass. Make sure you're ready to back up what you blurt!

      Wine is not a sin (only the overindulgence), so drink to the toast of having a good life, I guess so we don't get carried away too much.... Good poem!

      I always find that wine helps one to relax and then the emotions just flow. Easier to write I think when one can just speak from the heart. Awesome, loved it. Thank you for sharing.

      Awesome poem Lisa, I understand wine is an emotional lubricant for letting feelings slip out, and you took this poem on a beautiful journey through your feelings. Nice work, and love the letter style poem!
