Something Real

This song and a few memories are what inspired the following poem.

Something Real by April Gerard

Hot sunrise brought its heat
as the Moon danced its reset
to the jaunts of April mornings.

closed eyes..a deep breath,
the palms wiped of nervous sweat.

Battled days were to be had
as passion pressed and
midnight saw its birth.

tears fall..no reason why,
the heart beating rapidly in chest.

Clear stars gave way to
the weathered wars of hearts
with thoughts to take miles away.

Calm peace..laying with fingers intertwined,
the feel of skin owned by gentle, beautiful hands.

Chance came and went
and came yet again in its quest
to prove what doubt tries to take.

A moment..never to be forgotten,
something real. Something real....

Something very real here. Thoughts take us to a different place. Some we rejoice, some we regret! More chances shall come. That is just the way life works. Make more moments unforgettable, in a good way though.

Thoughts in time and out of season
The Hitchhiker
Stood by the side of the road
And leveled his thumb
In the calm calculus of reason

I enjoyed this poem--in particular because it really describes an experience, and one many people can relate to, I think.

I like this a lot. If we could all just be real...
