Easy Pieces


Easy Pieces

Alone with me.

It is your hour

I’m in your power

What will it be

When you’re alone

Except for me?


The busy stills

I don’t mind

You have the key

Let anxious go

I want to know

What will it be?


Alone with me

Test your heart

Is it in it?

I’m here for you

Just make a start

It’s yours to win it


Settle down

Or settle in

Take a walk

There is no sin

To open up

So we can talk


Alone with me,

What will you choose?

To risk it all?

As if you’d lose!

I’m here with you

To catch your fall.


The clock’s not on

Though time is ticking

So move your queen

Inertia’s sticking

Her move to capture king,

Checkmate forseen.

Harver, This is a refreshing format that tells in succinct lines what your heart's desire is. This reminds me of a new relationship. Check out my poem "Beyond Bliss" which is about the fear of falling in love. ginga



I'll be sure to visit and review "Beyond Bliss" Every thing has to start somewhere. . . Harv

Flows like a waterfall. Floats like a feather. Quite a mystery to unravel this your latest endeavor. Well done.



The stakes are high, like a world class poker game, but the outcome depends less on luck, than on strategy. At least that is how some of us play the game of love . . . Thanks Hampton for your thumbs up assessment. Harv

"The Busy Stills" Very intreaging line...I felt this poem... Thank you Harv.. Stephen.



Could be taken a couple f ways, I guess, but my poetic phrasing of letting all the busy stuff do its ting while getting into a zone of narrowed concentration such as Billy Chapel the pitcher in "For Love of the Game" . Harv

This reminds me of a song by Kutless called "Run" - I think you are speaking to something deeper than romance. 10 (and many thanks for sharing)



Leave it to you to get "it". I've always appreciated that uncanny connection you have. Harv

I loved the line of what will it be when you are alone with me. Also, the clock's not on though time is ticking. Beautiful poetry! Makes me want to take that step. Again into this write as I read once more and more...Hugz



tick - tick, tick - tick . . . . 59 minutes to go. ;-) Harv

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
