She Wasn’t Listening: Romantic IMprov Poetry

March 7, 2011

I want you to hurry back.
I want you to miss me.
I want you to decide.
I want you to kiss me.
I want you to do stuff with me.
I want you to just be.
I want you to keep calling me.
I want you to keep enthralling me.
I want you to keep texting me.
I want you to stop vexing me.
I want to you stop worrying.
I want you to keep blog stalking.
I want you.
I want you, too.

If I Was There: Romantic IMprov Iambic Poem

February 18, 2011

If I was there
I’d be laying,
soul bared,
next to you,
not trying to do
or anything
you didn’t want me to.
But just hold you
hear your voice,
sail on versper’d aires,
because you’d have the choice
to say all
or nothing at all.
Your call.
But when your mind got in gear,
I’d hear.
Not saying
Just listening
to your heart sing.
And as you poured
out your soul,
and lost
emotional control,
my arms would enfold you,
as though they might
control you.
But it’s only me
letting you
let go
and be.

Reaching Her Errogenous Zone: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

February 18, 2011

It’s not just romance
that makes the connection.
It’s a verbal dance
not seeped in false perfection,

But the unified ability
expressed mentally and verbally
of both parties
to really listen and see.

And when we find
we touch each other’s minds,
our brains expand
and we fully comprehend.

And when we, then, clearly understand
Who we each are, the connection is grand.

Why Older Men Can: Romantic IMprov Poem

November 23, 2010

Older men have the ability/
to caress and hold beauty.
to gaze into a face serenely.
to understand her thoughts completely.

To be tender when the moment requires;
to fan the flame of her deepest desires,
and yet,
when she’s vulnerable
to protect her;
to always be able
to not neglect her.

To dance with her in the snow;
to take her there, where she wants to go.
To do a slow waltz in the driving rain
while passersby murmur “That couple’s insane!”
and to hold her close and warm and secure,
and respond: “Not insane. Just in love … and quite sure!”

And then, at the end, to dry off her head,
and not want to hurry off to bed,
but to sit by the fire,
and listen, instead,
to her heart’s desire.

That’s what a kind, brave and true
older prince of a gentleman would do.
