Infused :: Inspired by and Infused to Love

My first 250 poems are all about various themes that have touched me.


54 Killing Time

Another medley (a few love songs). "Hold me in your arms for just another day - I promise this one will go slow - Ah memory, guess you'll have to do"

Rhyme Scheme: Blank Verse

It's only me whose killing time [Cliff Richard]
Wanting to go back to that construct
That filled my senses for a while [John Denver]
Where silence was so potent

But in between those silences was
A stream of whispered intimacies
Now its all just a memory oh baby
Where did all that tender love go?

Tell Tracey I love her. Tell her I need her! [Everly Brothers]
Tell her the wait is over
I've become who I wanted
If only she'll abide in my arms again

Then my life replete will be
Another spring when love overflows
Can this poor heart bear another winter
Oh shall I find a hundred ribbons [Tony Orlando]

Or find im just gone to pieces [Freddie Mercury]
"Hold me in your arms for just another day
I promise this one will go slow" [Air Supply]
Ah memory, guess you'll have to do
