The Sweet Sublime

Kevin Michael Bloor

I write romantically, in rhyme. 

Not all the time.  

Sometimes my pent-up passion cools  

for female fools.  


Then I begin to long for more, 

when women bore. 

I seek the sacred, sweet sublime.  

That’s not a crime!  


Not slighting goddess or the muse.  

(They can amuse.)  

But deep inside my love-sick soul  

they leave a hole.  


This mad misogynistic mood  

can seem quite rude,  

but poet’s life is oh, so short,  

the Buddha taught.  


Like line, on water, someone drew,  

we're passing through.  

So very soon we’ll disappear.  

We're such small beer!  


It’s time, I think, we did outgrow  

these girls who glow.  

Since we are simply streaming stars, 

light beams through bars. 


We’ll sleep like shells washed up on shore, 


So, search and seek the sweet sublime.  

Don’t waste your time!

    You are just getting old, mate -nothing more.

      Deffo. Sometimes, I just feel that there's got to be something more.

      'We're such small beer!'
      what a poignant image and write, dear Poet..
      (oft, we entrust
      and our trustee's
      end-up, making fools of us
      so we go searching for more
      and we feel hollow, till
      we realise, eventually
      what is, Is
      what will be, will
      all we can do
      is be the best, We
      can, Be
      and let loose, our grip
      on certainty
      and cherish, our now
      of respite
      that much more, fervently...)

      For sure! Such a sweet melody of words and a call for self-evolution! Well done! I also didn't know you can put gifs into the poem! Very nice and it fits the vibe! 💖
