Jelly and Dough

My mind feels like a well kneaded dough ball without a single air pocket.
Nervously I circle the freckle on my upper chest with the tip of my index finger.

and wonder why?

I want to run away.
I want to run so far that I leave behind all sentient beings.

I want to run into arms.
I want to run so hard that I knock love down on its face.

Instead I watch my chest rise and fall in a rhythmic pant.

My mind feels like a bowl of raspberry jelly with a floating chocolate frog.
Nervously I bob for the prize.
I want to drown in the sweetness of raspberry; conversely, I want to swallow the chocolate frog.

and I know why.

    Last night I had a dream of running into arms.. this is weird.. teehee.. a nice weird.. I am off now.. and this is like what I will dream of .. part 2.. you. I would bob for that prize..
    XXX. also.. I think I would like to see that ribbon around your neck. I will walk beside you.

  • There is no question that you and I are connected on some level I’m not even sure if there is a name for it. I don’t really care; I just know it and feel it. I love that you always understand me. I feel the ribbon…

    I hope you have a wonderful day xxx

    Your mind is “….like a bowl of raspberry jelly with a floating chocolate frog.” at least in terms of being delicious and I’m sure lots of fun at a kids party. I hope you don’t run away from all sentient beings Lisa, you’re well kneaded around here ;-)

    I think those feelings come and go for most of us, is it just part of caring?

  • Oh you are sweet….
    I am a lot of fun at kids party….that is until I insist on being the first to play the games….hehe.
    I love your play on the words. I thank you.

    Yes, it is about caring and the fear of caring too much…oh and a whole bunch of other things.

    I’ll be ok..

    oh I’m not saying that your poem theme is unoriginal, in fact it’s very original, to be truthful, I saw this poem as being more about not just wanting a slice of life… But wanting the entire, holistic experience of it… The cake so to speak. I just have a very dirty mind is all. ;-)

  • You are right….I do want it all and it scares the bejesus out of me.
    I adore the fact I can write something with no eroticism intended and you find it….I love it…
    You know if I tried to write a serious erotic piece, it would probably do nothing for you. It would like ho hum…hehe…
