Jumping In


 

Realizing

It must be done

My foot moves forward

Wishing it could go alone

Detached

As if gifted by a zombie

Testing the waters first

Reporting back

Contemplating

What if I drown?

Too tired to keep my head up

Giving in to defeat

What if I get hypothermia?

Coldness from the crowd

Chills me to the bone

I could float….

Nothing exciting to watch

But hey, head above water

I could swim….

Thrash around with purpose

Choose my own direction

Screw it!

I’m already naked

Metaphorically

For all to see

Ready or not, here I come!

Jumping in

  1. I like this one Lorre and I also like the notion of bobbing
    for apples, though the idea of a nice pear would also be
    rather wicked… But definitely no bananas 😦

    Actually…

    Underwater tig is a good
    game too you know? 🙂 lol

    Have a brilliant rest of
    evening Lorre and be
    good 🙂 If you can? 😉

      1. Well there is always later on 😉 🙂
        And with some wicked imagination
        and a naughty insight, anything can
        be achieved…

        or is it a naughty imagination and
        a wicked insight? 🙂 Well either way
        the outcome will be exciting 🙂

        Have a funtastic rest of evening now 🙂

      2. You must be still enjoying yourself with the kids
        and why not indeed? 🙂 But I do hope also that
        you are having fun with your creativity, as you
        always excel at that 🙂 😉

        Be very well Lorre and be good too 😉

    YAY!!!

    oh

    I so didn’t get this one. Does it show? Lol! I’ve been… not here, for a while. Good to drop in and see you doing good. Unless this poem means that you are doing bad.
    I’m diggin’ here, and I think I’m goin’ under. Anyway, Hi there. Good to see you.

    1. I can’t believe I even associate with someone like you in the blog world. Really man, get it together!
      Seriously, I can’t complain if you took some time before you stopped by. I haven’t made my rounds in a long time. I started to pay attention to my family again. It really eats up time.

  3. Glad you jumped in, L! Floundering alongside you… for all to see much to their dismay most days, I’m sure … lol It’s nice to know I am in such terrific company as yours. I feel so much better about being here now. I don’t even have a family and it’s hard to get on here, let alone do the rounds. As and when we can. At ease… LOL LOL 🙂

    1. For some reason, it’s becoming more and more difficult lately. I probably let a lot slide in my “real” life when I first started this, so I had more time. Now….back to adding in reality and making this a side dish.

      1. I think that reality offers a richer content too
        and so I am pleased that you are taking time
        out with your family and enjoying it 🙂

        Have a wonderful rest of evening Lorre 🙂
