What I Desire

by MissCJMonroe

I want to feel so high
I want more intrigue in this life

Cup my hands and scoop up
This thick air of smoke

I’ll drink it in slowly
I’ll let it blow me up
I’ll float above my seat

I’ll lie back into the grass
Legs extended
Arms spread
Heart exposed

I’ll throw my head back
The soft pink flesh of my throat bared
I am free of care
Paint these thoughts upon the walls of my mind
Type these words into my dancing brain
I fear to forget what comes to me now

I thought this poem was excellent, but I found the last line very weak.

    I definitely agree, yet every time I read this poem, that is the line that I remember WRITING the clearest, but yet that doesn't mean it fits. I am wondering how I can stir the pot and come up with the same meaning with different words. What do you think?

Wow, this poem is so trippy.

Okay, okay, where's my vinyl copy of "Dark Side Of The Moon"? I need to pull it out for this piece. Good stuff, Carleigh, you express it all too well (not that I would, ahem, personally know, ahem, or anything, ahem, you know?). We each fight our demons within our own way, some through the "herb", some through the white mistress, yet I've come to just settle for the fine beer courtesy of the fine folks from Pabst Blue Ribbon along with the non-filtered Pall Mall's courtesy of R.J. Reynolds -- and the fine ditties courtesy of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. To quote a great mind, we didn't start the fire, though we didn't light it, we tried to fight it. Smile -- j.
