As twilight sets in;
I brace myself up
For a long lonely evening
My pet; unaware; of the storm
Brewing within me;
Calmly rests his face on my lap
Whimpering with pleasure;
Eyes; half closed; licking my fingers
There! the twilight
The reality sets; the dreams end
Or; do they?
Mind races across;
Like a Capuchin
Jumping from one branch to another
I let the thoughts race
To the past; which is futile
To the future; on which I have no control
The present; I seem to forget
and let it slip by; unnoticed.
Foolish you could call.
Dumb me! I’d say.
The day sailed smooth;
Bright sunshine and cool breeze
Happy chirping birds and people’s blabber.
With my love’s soothing voice of sweet nothings
Why hover to unknown; when the present is so fine.
I realize that; just in time.
Twilight – I brace myself up.
My thoughts interrupt –
With a phone call reminding me to workout ;-)
