Simply Thoughts of You


Poem Commentary

This poem was inspired by a talented Poet, Jes, and her poem 'Time has Come'. and it is loosely based on a on conversation the two of us had. I give her writing credit as she gave me permission to use some of her responses in our private conversation in this poem. She also provided the heart and inspiration for this work so I hope it shows.


Simply Thoughts of You

“Tell me it is rubbish, give me your true thoughts”
My flesh breaks loose in goose bumps,
For it is my wisdom she has sought"

Avidly, her poems I read,
My perception was, Angelic!
She gets into my head,
And makes my mind go psychedelic

Gathering my thoughts, I opine,

“Then rubbish it is I proclaim,
If that is what you desire”
“But in reality, your words warm my soul,
And lift my spirits higher”

“I long to be the man you met,
Who stole your breathe with his words”
“In my dreams, this wish will be,
No need to be discouraged”

“I will be there to guard your door,
Dreaming is absence of pain”
“Turn your head up to feel my essence,
Should you find yourself lost in the rain”

“I’ll be the boy with curious eyes,
And shades of amber hair”
“Visiting you in your slumber,
Promise me you’ll be there”

Promise me she did, I still recall her response

“Dreams I live inside this box
Shake me, Open me, Do my eyes not Flutter?
Slumber, meet me there
Let me not wake”

Her words rang so true,
As if they were written in Dylan’s soul
Her beauty only matched,
By the elegance her words behold

Excitedly I proclaim:

“Then tonight it is, in our dreams we meet”
“Where the wandering streams flow beneath our feet,
Clouds no longer out of reach,
Our clothes slosh around on some sandy beach,
Innocent and free, reminiscent of our youth
We soar to heights which alone cannot reached
What once was false has shifted to truth,
Impossible turns conceivable when I’m with you,
I await your presence, under the celestial sky so blue”

Until then, simply thoughts of you

I enjoyed this glaring proclamation of wanting, desiring, and caring for someone so much, you could have easily done this in oratory off the top of a mountain that it echo the strength of it's purpose in wave after wave.... great write Spence

Wow! to be loved and be almost able to feel the passion in this piece. I assumed it's for Jes. She's one lucky girl. Your comments back and forth to each other are also very moving. A passion that is all to often too rare in this day and time. Nice job

Paolo commented on Simply Thoughts of You


There is a great poem in this work, but not all of it is good poetry. The rhymes are what throw me off they seem to get in the way of the voice showing me, the reader, how it feels about the object of such praise and understanding. I understand that there is two authors, I feel the two of you can do some compassionate surgery and make this poem one someone would want to read more than once.



Paulo, I took some advise and tryed working into a new poem, 'Realm of Delusion' so you should check it out and let me know what you think.

Good maybe great sexy without any sex can't get enough of such poetry please enlighten the rest on how to write as such.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
