I saw lonely as diamonds in your eyes
and thought it was something curable
with slow hands and the man kind of kind
and you saw it too in mine
like it had just arrived a moment ago

we laughed sometimes back then
at the edge of that maybe street
where we talked about crossing the line
and getting each other all over us
if for only momentary fulfillment

I guess that is what we had in common
that comfort of mutual discomfort
and you didn't want to be lonely at fifty
nor did I at sixty you imagined
but you would keep yours a little longer

because it was easier then arguing
with the cold man that you danced with
and I would keep mine too you predicted
since you didn't see me giving up freedom
to be just a prisoner of contentment

but you didn't know I could just ride faster

I'll tell ya something, Dark. If I'd come across your poetry 20 years ago, it would definitely have been used to unscrupulous ends. I'm not talking plagiarism, just ammunition.(winks)

prisoner of love
a paradox of yearning
for more or for less.

You are an uncommon man, D.

You make me weak in the knees, and then make me look.

This is special, like Margherita said, it's an event, and what do you know..

I still got my number.   Hmmm, yea!!!

Sometimes I read your poetry and can only think of replies that sound awkward or too gushing.  The fact is when I strip all the superlatives away - I am left with this need to read more and to read poems of yours I have read before.

This is really what it is all about for me - I read you with my first cup of coffee.  I read you when I am rushing out the door.  I read you in between my day and I read you before sleep.  It doesn't matter when I read my Dark Stranger poem - it only matters that I get my fix.

Thank you for addicting me.

I feel like Alison, although I don't always reply...

but this one D, is truly you from before, during and after and I especially love this since I am coming upon that 60 very soon  

"I guess that is what we had in common
that comfort of mutual discomfort
and you didn't want to be lonely at fifty
nor did I at sixty you imagined
but you would keep yours a little longer

because it was easier then arguing
with the cold man that you danced with
and I would keep mine too you predicted
since you didn't see me giving up freedom
to be just a prisoner of contentment"

Here's to you always "riding faster"


with very kind thoughts,
M

(btw, I think I missed wishing you a happy one)

When I read this the first time - what a week ago now? - I felt as mesmerized and speechless as I do now.

I see that in 2009 I said it won't be the last time ... and here I am, so happy to have come to the archives for a while.

It is still an event!

Goodness gracious, you can't deprive us Pipsters of your work! So please serve us some of your unique and spicy poetic appetizers! Will you ...
