At first lick of the lips.

By cadymae

How loud is the chorus in your head?
When did it start singing so strongly
you were forced to pay it your full attention?

Did you give it free rein?

Does it rule from the high-back controller
at the top of your mind even now?

Knowing, laughing, reeling,
about the board with you?

Some sunny morning debate wresting the joy-stick
tho you know in your bones
the sullen carousing is more fun this way

You could never lead you astray.
So they are welcomed again and again.
You nodding, bowing, submissive,
being bested by your swelling appetites.

    I could sit and read everything upon your page, and spew out comment after comment of flowery words. Every one you'd deserve in my humble opinion. But this struck home closer than the others I've read thus far, the taste of it is something I remember vividly. Again, thank you.

    I'm probably wrong, but this speaks to me of some lonely person who is caught up in online gaming, to the point of excluding reality perhaps. Cheers to you and always a thoughtful offering, thanks.
