Your Wears (Fun Poem 81)

The strong smell of bleach
always reminds me of when I was young
and went to learn to swim.
The instructor told us then
that the best way to learn to swim
was with nothing on.
Once our embarrassment was over,
we learned how to swim.
Nowadays laws being what they are
you can never learn to swim in the nod.
Anyone would be hung, drawn and quartered
for even suggesting it.
After loosing your embarrassment
of running around in the nod,
the next step up was streaking,
showing your wears to everyone.
That feeling of being totally free
suddenly comes over you,
you peel off your clothes and away you go.
They say the best time to do it is at midnight,
but some like to do it during the day.
However, the next time you feel
like being totally free you know just what to do.
Wait until midnight or go and have a cold shower.
It always works for me.

Women Who Begin With Letter S

Never published majorly,
But far beneath the sea, while I
Wake up on Tuesday after a holiday,
Holding my breath as a school of
Fish waits at the bus-: stop underfoot from
The lion,
I am surprised that I have arms and
Hands extended,
And a history brief and not well planned,
But sure,
And there are women who oppose my sex,
Who I am supposed to fit into,
Marry, love, support and reproduce into,
To eventually drift away every night
Our togetherness of the coital bed only
Highlighting how different planets we are,
But now I should move my fingers
And swim upward,
For there are bills and car insurance,
And naked speckled swimming in the shadows,
Their legs good enough to compete in
The Olympics,
For, you see, I created them. One of them
I named Lynn, all the others start with the
Letter S, and one day they might see the light
Of day,
So when the general populace wakes up
Sporadically, swimming into mass produced
Consciousness, they might see my women too,
And swim up into the belt of sun where
Green things grow, and notice how the sorority
Of freckled navels indent like flirting come-ons,
Like the bosom of fruit still clinging to its tree.

Swim 2

Searching for better views
I've never been this much reduced
And every road I've crossed
Has brought me back to where i was
And all I've loathed I'd trust
To drag forward towards you, love

And there isn't much to say
That i haven't already said
Now all the pressure in my veins
Is merely bursting out of my head

But your touch, it heals
Pain is no longer what i feel
Within the depths, you are true
And there my soul trembles for you

Wondering, just wondering
Maybe you're the line that separates our worlds
Maybe you're the light that guides us forward
Or maybe you're just another bump in the road
That never ends with rewards....

Maybe you are, maybe you are not
And to me maybe was never enough

And you say: ''Swim and keep swimming''
But now i feel like breathing for nothing
And you say: ''Sing and keep singing''
But the words keep on shoving me down
And there seems to be no easy way out

Im breathing now
Im breathing out

Doesn't it ever bother you to not know
What lies before uncertainty you follow
Doesn't it ever bother you to just go
And face the inevitability of your hollows

No, you just keep swimming
And the world's just spinning
Because they kept swimming on

And the world was just spinning along
Doing nothing, nothing, nothing wrong
Because we were all singing this song
The one that says we are finally home

Far Away

One day I’ll swim far away
Beneath the sea
Beneath the surface
Where it’s safe

One day I’ll swim
In the depths so deep
That I see my soul
And hear it scream

I’ll see the fish
And the coral there
And all the shipwrecks
And human bones too

The water won’t sting my eyes
My skin won’t itch
It would be as the air
On the ground
Where it’s dry

I won’t hold my breath
I’ll let water fill my lungs
I’ll let my body sink
And wait to die

One day I’ll swim far away
To the darkness below
And let my soul go
To the safety of its Master

One day I’ll swim
Far beneath the depths
Where no scientist has seen
No human has imagined

I’ll stare in wonder
At the beauty of the deep
And watch my soul reunite
With its rightful Owner

Written on Friday,26 February 2010 when I let it get really bad.
