Poem - Should Be Close

A dear friend stated, “I have few regrets in life. …. and another is not knowing how to keep friends...” This struck a nerve on my part. While I consider them to one of my deepest friends, I’ve not talked to them in far too long Years ago I spoke to them everyday. They had also told me years ago that people who walk away from them are no longer friends. Does that mean that I’m in the “friends not kept” category by my own actions? Perhaps! My thoughts then went to other ancient friends that I seem to be in the process of discarding. It is terribly difficult to make friends. Why am I being so foolish? All of this led me to write the poem “Should Be Close”.

Should Be Close

They said they couldn’t keep
friends on this side of the veil
losing them to life’s travails
with sadness as a common thread

some had lost their mortal husk
age asks too much us mortal ones
linking those of common minds
then removing the most precious gems

others vanished into life’s crowd
swallowed by the detritus of the world
rushing here and running there
it’s no wonder that some are lost

politics may bind two people
the same may tear at the binds
when the unseen is revealed
in choice of party or of man

the last cause I’ll propose
may cut deeper than the rest
close companions, with love picked
exclude others by their mindset

I’ve done poorly, I’ll admit
to retain the brightest gold I’d found
all the causes are my undoing
with the friends that should be close.

Poem - Jesus Made Them Hot

The poem “Jesus Made Them Hot” was written for a contest that asked “write a poem mixing religious and secular images and all that jazz into one poem”. The contest host stated “this is your hall pass”. I’ll take them at their word!

Jesus Made Them Hot

They said that Jesus made them hot
with perfect love and perfect trust
wait that was my other lover
the Wiccan who worshiped in the buff

I asked my Christian why this was so
what qualities provoked the chemistry
they said look to the ancient truths
and then apply them between the silk sheets

first be faithful that bodies gush
when rapt attention is put forth
though unseen at the start
the end will come at long last

send the prayers to heavenly father
asking for aid in foreplay’s pleasure
off to a great start helps towards the end
any assistance is better than none

the blessed son was the most wise
quoting scripture to teach the lost ones
red letter text could be the last word
regarding the love of all fellow men

I’d humble myself to gifts of the flesh
on my bent knee I offered pleasure
yes ma’am, yes sir, what can I do
to solicit climax at the end of our play?

with patience I waited for apex’s peak
they asked to pace with due diligence
not rushing or racing to my own end
this is what he would want in the bed

lastly insisted on charity’s bliss
giving the all towards coital joy
to give and not take was the highest goal
put forth by their savior as bodies were pressed

I asked them how they came to my bed
they answer was simple: I was then led
to be with another with these attributes
I was as hot as Jesus was pure.
