    A Love Game # 41

    HOW MANY OF US CAN SAY

    How many of us can say
    That our hearts overflow
    And we are truly happy
    Itís akin to winning the lotto
    And I know all too well
    Because I hit the jackpot
    I had it all, until I balked
    At thoughts of tying the knot
    Thatís why I now sit alone
    Sad and broken hearted
    And living with the regret
    Because we parted

    I SPIED HER AT THE FESTIVAL

    I spied her at the local festival
    Dancing geekily with friends
    But I detected no ďspecial friendĒ
    So I drifted slowly in her direction
    She was a year or two older than I
    I was still a teen, only just a teen
    But a teenager still nonetheless
    So our footsteps danced together
    Toe to toe only seeing each other
    Our bodies whispered wanton desire
    So we took a walk to quench the fire
    It was a geeky girl that I first saw
    Dancing in the festival sunlight
    But it was a women I walked home
    That night in the moonlight

    THEY MET ONE DAY AT THE PARK

    They met one day at the park
    Just an everyday happenstance
    She thought he had promise
    From the very first glance
    But giving herself was a gamble
    So was it worth a chance?
    She thought she would and was
    Rewarded with a great romance

    SHE HAD A GAUNT HAUNTED FACE STARK IN ITS PALENESS

    She had a gaunt haunted face, stark in its paleness
    Her mouth was thin and the lips were colourless
    The countenance was sad, her dark eyes hollow
    And the frail being trembled in keenly felt sorrow
    The reason for her broken world weary carriage
    Was being locked in a cold loveless marriage
    And the limits of her entrapment were narrow
    Which she keenly felt deep in bone and marrow
    She was a pitiful sight with eyes cast down
    Skinny, bent and stooped and shoulders round
    She was a poor creature, broken in mind and soul
    But I was captivated and pledged to make her whole
    So with a matter of weeks I broke the binding tether
    And we made our escape, forever bound together

    LOOSENING THE MOORINGS

    Loosening the moorings
    Our souls took flight
    As we drifted on the streams
    In a dream of moonlight

    I especially liked that narrative in I SPIED HER AT THE FESTIVAL as well as the others.

    Each of these was very special. I would have to say the first and last were my absolute favorites, but it was difficult to choose!
    Very well done, as always, Biggus.
