-- A Skydiver's Affiar --  (4-15-2000)

I'd love to fly, and kiss the sky, without this comfy chair
It's so much more, when out the door, than the feeling of the air

I'll fall too fast, for you to grasp, but your cheating winds will know
I'll watch you stare, as through my hair, your gasping breath will blow

Then rushing back, you'll see our past, that warm summer breeze
With bees they've danced, with leaves romanced, with me they only tease

I've seen them fly, with grace and style, they need not fight to stay
Alone with you I dream, and still you scream, there 'll never come a day

Your clouds will paw, through them I'll fall, your grasp I can escape
Your planes may climb, your birds may mind, but me you can't embrace

I'll linger down, until her ground, oh how she welcomes me
The thrill is better, you may have met'er, her name is gravity

--Dave

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)

WhiteNite~
I really enjoyed the 'free-fall'.
What exhilaration.
Loved the way you sneaked 'her'
name in at the close.
Clever !

very cool my dave-gator...
you really want to do this dont you??
I dont know if I could?
I think I stick to my fantasy of a hotair balloon ride.  
great poem..loved the flow...read smooooth as butter*smile*
later, jan-gator



 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

Marge - Thanks.. I liked the ending myself.. the line before the last was hard to put together though... I think I could have done better. =)

Pepper - Thanks.  Glad you enjoyed it.

Jan -   I want to do it AGAIN... I went skydiving about a month ago for the first time... LOVED it!  Maybe we could do both together.. I'd like to skydive from a hotair baloon. =)

Hey boy!  Whew...I got a little nervous there at first, you know, with all we've talked about, and all...I thought you were gonna tack MY name on the end of this!  ROFL  So glad it turned out the way it did, I'd hate to have to come to your home and beat you up!     Um...(twiddling thumbs)...my mailbox happens to be empty, you know anything about that?     Catch you later - uh...maybe next time you jump!  How's that?

Femme - [lol]  My dear sweet poetic friend... I'd like to tack your name on the end, but it just wouldn't have had the same effect... =)  But then if you're promising a visit maybe I should go edit it. =)  J/K

You can catch me anytime, but I'd much prefer when I fall... when I jump I usually have control over my landings. =)

You're mail box is empty?  Nope, don't know anything about that... but I resent my last message just in case. =)

Martie - Glad you liked it.  You should try the real thing sometime.
