joy

it’s true I’ll say or maybe not
my arms are strong my blood runs hot
and I can tell the which from what
in all important ways

and though my name is on your lips
and destiny between us skips
I’m close to cashing in my chips
it’s been one of those days

the canvas on which we are drawn
attracts no love just bitter scorn
and yet, you’ll see, I’m not forlorn
a laugh, a joke, a song

come sit beside and hold my hand
for I have nothing certain planned
my life drifts by like windblown sand
and how can that be wrong

but jealous of our overt glee
there’s others who’d delight to see
you break the living heart of me
and leave me on the floor

yet I’ll ignore the games they play
for if not now there’ll come a day
when I will take their toys away
of that you may be sure

and they will find their bubbles bust
as with the anger of the just
I’ll leave them crying in the dust
an end that’s only fair

but until then we’ll take our rest
among the people we love best
and count ourselves forever blest
with joy enough to spare

    I always love your story poems and this is another one that you (or I) could write a novel from..I read these poems 3 times. The first, just to explore it. The second, to see the entire story unfold and the third, to smile, knowing how it will end.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • Thanks πŸ˜€ though I’m not sure it’s a coherent story, hence the whimsy tag πŸ˜†

        It’s pretty coherent…I could write 50 pages easily! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I think the whimsy comes from all of the things he thinks he would do..but it never leaves the fantasy stage..yet..he’s still happy! πŸ™‚

        • I would say not so much not leaving the fantasy stage, as he can’t be bothered getting angry enough to actually react to any provocation πŸ˜€

            • it’s good we can share
              but the words were just there
              pulled out of the air
              no muss and no fuss

              Thank you πŸ˜€ I had to move your smilies to the ends of the lines to keep your formatting, I’m afraid πŸ˜€

                • You are welcome, but I didn’t know either. I had to try a couple of times before I got the formatting to work πŸ˜€
