I CAN’T GET NO


It was the most amazing view of The City.

My heart filled with anticipation as the car pushed against gravity — allowing a bit of control against the pull.

We seemed to fly down the street. A slight fear that we might not be able to stop. But, no oblivion. Just a perfect sky, your hand on my thigh and that comfort clanking sound of a trolley passing by.

The sun and the breeze filled our ride.

By the time we parked my heart had calmed but was so very full of you. But, with a cold touch of your eyes I see the trouble returning.

And, now — as we sit over a couple of drinks you seem obscured. I can no longer see you.

I sip the bitterness and wonder if you can ever be satisfied.

I swallow and try to find you.


“…but all is changed with time.
the future none can see.
the road — you leave behind.
ahead lies mystery…”
Stevie Wonder

    Well, hell, Matty. That doesn’t sound happy.

    Karyn – No, but it is all OK. It was just a moment. A sad one, but I felt the need to write about it. It can’t always be happy.

    I missed this post since all I saw for the past few days was the some saggy butts on some stationary bikes!

    You’re right, we can’t be happy all the time cuz or else we’d end up in a nut house. Can’t be happy without the other. I’m glad everything is okay tho. Take care Matty. *kisses*

    Robert – Thank you, sweetie. Yes, I agree.

    …I got a little blog happy and those butts were most distracting. Of course now there is a big tea cup full of Barbra on my site. hmmmmm….
