The Soft Touch

If I were to yield,
and become squashy,
would I have a spongy effect,
or would I have
become diffused with indulgent,
spineless,
undemanding sensitivity,
or am I just a sympathetic,
softhearted,
sentimental fool,
who only wants to flow delicately,
subtly,
in a muted and understated manner,
gently bringing
mellifluous and
melodious dreams
along on a
supple and velvety pillow,
pliable only to silky
faint words from a
flexible fellow?

Wow! I loved this. It had the kind of feeling to it that I wish I could experience just once.   I drifted along on this one just fine.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"
