So hear
You know I am already a fool
When it comes to you
I stalk you like a haunter
A haunter ill-prepared
To apprehend the victim
So that each time
I come close to you
I am all amped up
Adrenaline pouring through my blood
As I prepare to hop on you
And claim you for myself
But at the climax of my anxiety
I am reminded that
There really is no way to bring it through
This lack makes me burn hotter with sickening desire

For a moment
You look in my direction
Just in time to see me on fire
Oh darn! I reek of burns
I try to run away
But the trail of smoke betrays me wickedly
You try to reach for me
But, again, I think
What will be the end to it
What happens after you catch up to me
Stand and stare me in the face
So I run
Adrenaline oozing through my sweat
A strong pheromone
On someone dreading attention
And you chase me
Why you do I don’t know
But I won’t even dare to ask that
If and when you should catch up with me

I just run
Like a foolish lion
Who faced a horned antelope
To discover late
That he hadn’t grown any tooth or claw!

  1. That was some great imagery mixed with some very nice prose into a hauntingly steamy soup. Too bad you don’t have teeth. I am going to eat it all.

  2. I think you’re just horny! lol good poem Doc. 🙂

  3. I have to wonder about Shards comment above. Mostly about whether or not it could be true – one never knows. Doc, are you teetering on the edge once again? Is this the descent into insanity or recovery from it? Well done in either case – bloody good.

Even the most absurd thoughts can't ruffle this Enchanted Writer. Spill, please...
