Falling Off Mt. Olympus

Attracted by your opinions on a variety of issues
Mood swings from tossing hand grenades to reaching for tissues
Complementary remarks in my direction that I was one of a select few
Had me voluntarily paying closer attention to you.


Similarities between us quickly came to mind
Out of all the available women; you to me; were quite a find
Suddenly a day of silence followed by other days lined up in a neat row
Premature thoughts of future unification; with this silly idea; "Where do I now go?"


During my free fall I thought there must be someone out there more sophisticated than me
Someone to devote your overwhelming love to instead of consolation sympathy
At the base of another mountain again I collect my thoughts in another ascending moment in the direction of the sky
A future setting for two in a rose garden is virtually impossible unless you try.

About this poem:
Hope springs eternal everytime you establish communication. Happiness in the future is always impossible if the opportunity is constantly severed soon after the moment of birth.

When I first read the title, I thought" Ah, someone has been playing with the gods and got into a spot of trouble". *Chuckle* May hope and faith always spring eternal and may you find what you are seeking. Wonderful thoughts bound together. wine
