Is the Grass Greener?

Posted by tpegonline on June 28, 2012

This poem is a series of 10 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form.

This poem is about a guy who has has lost the love of his life to another man. All he wants to know is “Why?”

Also, for your listening pleasure, I hyperlinked song titles to their respective audio files on GrooveShark.com.

You’ll find that I was in a DeBarge kind-of mood when I wrote this poem.

Enjoy the poem.

Is he more handsome?
Does he drive a nicer car?
He makes six figures?

Is his scent nicer?
Are his kisses hotter and
sweeter? Please tell me.

Does he make love to
you better making you scream
louder and more often?

Is his cooking so
good that your mouth waters? Does
he feed it to you?

Could it be that his
surprises make you far more
happier than mine?

So, he looks better
in his tailor-made suits and
his imported shoes?

Do you love him more?
Are you sure he loves you as
much as I do? Huh?

I love you so much
that I will let you go. Just
be happy, my love.

Time Will Reveal if
you truly have his whole heart.
I know you have mine.

Babe, All This Love
is Waiting for You
. Tell me,
is the grass greener?

The Thrill of the Hunt

Posted by tpegonline on June 19, 2012

This poem is a series of 13 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form.

This poem is about those times when you’ve been chasing after someone for a long time but they always seem to run away.

Nonetheless, you persist. Even if it takes you more than 20+ years you will not break off your pursuit.

Also, for your listening pleasure, I hyperlinked song titles to their respective audio files on GrooveShark.com.

Enjoy the poem.

Damn, girl! You look good!
Your perfume is sweet and your
big smile is stunning.

You somehow resist
my most aggressive pursuits.
Come on! Stop running!

I’ll Love You Down and
Make it Last ForeverIf
Only For One Night
.

I want you to taste a
Piece of My Love so I can
Rock Witcha, baby.

The Sweetest Taboo
is the best way to describe
thoughts I have of you.

I’d drive your Little
Red Corvette
if you’d ride my
Pony. Getty-up!

I can just hear us
now…Uhh Ahh. Don’t Say No,
Just Say Yes
. Come here.

Like Allstate, you’re in
good hands because I’m All True
Man
. Yep, I’m a Man.

You play hard to get.
Why You Gettin’ Funky on
Me?
Please tell me why.

I get Butterflies
when I think about how long
I’ve been chasing you.

Girl, please don’t keep me
Hanging On a String. Do I
perhaps have a chance?

You know what? Maybe
I’m Never Gonna Get It.
You’re so hard to catch.

I love to chase what
I really want. I really want you.
The thrill of the hunt.

That Something Special

Posted by tpegonline on June 5, 2012

This poem is a series of 12 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem.

This poem is to all of the lovers out there who have found that special someone and they have – well, you know, that something special.

That something special that is a fine dish cooked-up down home style by the Neely’s pictured below (from the Food Network’s show, Down Home With the Neely’s)

“That Something Special”

What is it that we
have? I do not even know
what we should call it.

As enduring as
time itself. As expansive
as the galaxy.

Much sweeter than a
cube of sugar. Hotter than
a cayenne pepper.

Sending shivers through
my body like a tub full
of crushed ice – Brrrhhh! Brrrhhh!

Molten lava hot.
My heart melts at the thought of
you. I’m Burnin’ Up.

The fragrant smell of
your hair and the softness of
your radiant skin.

You make me want to
sing Something Something because
I’m so Fortunate.

Please, if I’m asleep,
don’t wake me – I’m Dreaming
Sweet Dreams made of you.

A giant among
dwarves is what you are, my love.
Girl, you’re So Amazing.

Indescribable.
Not by words, pictures nor by
videos. Unique.

So, what do we have?
Fond memories and the sheer
joy of the moment.

A promising and
bright future with you. Just Us.
That something special.
