January 11, 2014

What’s it like to find/
one wanting to chase you like/
you want to be chased?

Chastising Christian Eric: Revolutionary ImproVerse Sonnet

August 29, 2013

Oh Christian Eric, thou poor fool./
Rox Lisa wants to make you drool,/
while I, Cy, sit and dream of her,/
Mine is but a dream deferred.

For she somehow has chosen you/
to stir your magic verbal stew./
While my attentions are ignored/
And get discarded out her door.

And that’s where I don’t understand/
how I, a kind, romantic man,/
can be cast off as a verbal suitor./
Are you that much younger and cuter?

If only I had half the chance/
As you to pursue her in romance!

What I Dream: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

July 18, 2011

You ask what it seems
I have in my dreams,
if we would discuss
you, me, and us.

I dream of being able to,
in all ways, impress you
and full-on woo you
and with joy and laughter pursue you.

But if you say “no”,
and give into fear,
I’ll awaken real slow,
or slip into a nightmare.

For living out full-blown, wondrous dreams
is often much harder than it seems.

A Non-Assertive Perhapsian Sonnet: Revolutionary Email Poetry

March 26, 2010

To revel in assertiveness,
I must confess,
requires an enjoyment
akin to bliss.

Sometimes, after the workout,
when I’m well perspired,
I may look at myself
and think: “WOW! I’m tired!”

Tired of the chase.
Tired of the race.
Tired of the chastisement
I sometimes must face

Tired of being too anxious to pursue, too eager to woo.
So, sometimes, I think: “Perhaps … I’m through.”
