A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

So, today …


… bang in the middle of the day
I wait for those words, lurking
Just there. Just there.
Where I cannot reach.

They came, with the waking moment.
That moment, when you are, and you aren’t.
That moment, when clarity strikes.
And fuzzy warmth of slow recognition
Mists over.

I reached out. Too late…
Like petulant children, they shied away.
That moment is when they wanted me.
Not two ticks later.

So here, in the middle of the day
I sit. I yearn. I plead. I know though
They won’t surface now.
I also know when they will. 🙂

Not now. But at that moment,
When I turn away, peeking like those
Perky persistently playful creatures they are.
Not words. Not anymore.

They’ve grown beyond that
Into a yearning. Into a secret pleasure.

I don’t know the story yet.
Or the ending.
All I have, are these tingles
These feathery-touch-me-softly promises
From them.

They’ll come.
They’d better.

… They ought to.

They will, won’t they?

  1. Wow 🙂 I can say similar lines to words too nowadays…you said it so beautifully 🙂


  2. Beautiful poetic words and I am more than happy for you to share the image I created on this day of love. Thank you for the mention. Claire


  3. Just the end, the hope, the innocence with which the question is asked. Who can say no but. Beautifully painted emotions. 🙂 Loved this.


  4. Aha! Beautiful!

    Like petulant children, they shied away.
    That moment is when they wanted me.
    Not two ticks later.
    But I think they are already there with you!


  5. Beautiful! And I know just what you mean:) they are playing hide and seek here as well. so many thoughts and no paper at that precise moment to scribble them on.


  6. Wishing you more such tingles that materialize into more such beautiful lines…and what better way to express this love affair on the Valentine’s day?? 🙂

    late to stop by – but never too late i guess!
