    ...I chase my thoughts across the paper,
    but they elude my grasp, as the gray
    of my matter struggles to comprehend
    the range of emotions spilling from
    my pen

    In what seems an effortless exercise
    in search of tranquility,
    I'm stunned by my spiraling descent
    into poetic futility ~

    which gives me pause

    because...

    I never thought anything as real as
    tactile sensation ~ or anything as strong
    as this love vibration ~ or anything as deep
    as soul penetration
    could so
    completely break my heart
    and my concentration...

    at bedtime,
    in my attempt to tuck you in
    I resume this endless ritual ~
    chasing my thoughts
    with this pen...

    you never cease to amaze me...as i consider tactile sensations and soul penetrations...while laying in bed wait'n to be tucked in....coz this thought definitely didn't escape the grasp of your pen.

    thank you for sharing.

    Smooth night writing...very smooth. It's been awhile since I read you, yet nothing has changed...your pen still moves me.
