Something In the Water

Posted by tpegonline on January 12, 2015

Folks, I’m working on a new format of sharing my poetry. The working title for this format is called Quadruple Quandaries. I call it that because this format presents four poems with the same title and subject matter that will always be some sort of a predicament. The styles of the four poems will differ. They will be a sonnet, haiku chain, limerick chain and a triple rhyme.

As has been my custom here on my blog, song titles will be linked to their respective audio files on GrooveShark.com.

I hope that you like it.

Full disclosure is what I try to do.

I want to keep you informed, in the know.

I’m an open book because I love you.

Why You Treat Me So Bad? Let Your Love Flow.

Yes, we’ve had troubles and hurt each other.

Words do cut deep when tempers are flaring.

Let’s Keep On Movin’; no more Back and Forth.

Not For Long should our voices be blaring.

Kanye’s from the west, Kim’s roots from the east.

Their love made north, so why did ours go south?

You get so mad I want to call a priest.

When hot fire and venom spew from your mouth.

Should I keep quiet and act as if mute?

Something In the Water Does Not Compute.

Wow… the Sea of Love.

Best place for lovers to sail.

Serene, blue waters.

Could she Love me not?

The question I ask myself.

Staring into space.

I’m searching for her.

Have You Seen Her? Is she lost?

Will I find her soon?

I miss her big smile.

Longing for her dancing eyes.

Her sweet, sexy voice.

Ups and downs were had.

Now we are here. Can We Talk?

Let’s reason, sweetheart.

All This Love awaits.

The future cannot unfold.

Please let the past go.

I’m not your father.

You’re not your mother, okay?

But I’m me. You’re you.

You’re so defensive.

Dear, we both hurt each other.

Scars to show galore.

We have Crazy Love.

Yikes! When A Woman’s Fed Up

Come and Talk to Me.

LORD knows that I try.

Hot one day, then cold the next.

Hanging On a String.

In The Glow of Love.

We can drink and bathe in it.

Do you understand?

Perhaps its because

You Never Knew Love Like This.

Maybe I’m not clear.

I’m under water.

Swimming upstream towards you.

Do you hear my pleas?

Hmmm… Computer Blue.

‘Cuz Something in the Water

Does not compute.

They say all good things must end.

We just don’t now how, why, or when.

One must be prepared.

Even though they’ll be scared.

Who know what could have been?

That’s not a question I want to ask.

Here I am Baby, I’m not wearing a mask.

Ordinary People, but No Ordinary Love.

I’m sweet on you, my little dove.

If I have to keep fighting for us I’m up to the task.

But it takes two to tango.

A tomato is not nearly as sweet as a mango.

Living in the past makes one bitter.

And that will make them a sad critter.

I’ll chase you from here to Durango!

Peace be still and open your heart.

It Takes Two and I’m doing my part.

Please baby, Don’t Be Cruel.

Let’s practice the golden rule.

Focus on a brand new start.

I hope that my words are melodic like a flute.

I’m a man with Sensitivity and far from a brute.

I speak but you say nothing back.

Are you trying to give me a heart break attack?

Is it Something in the Water and do I need my wet suit?

Your such a Distant Lover.

Baby Don’t Be That Way, ‘cuz I don’t want another.

Can I be your Girlfriend instead of your brother.

I think of you on Two Occasions.

Day and night, is the answer so you don’t have to figure out any equations.

I try to show you using different persuasions.

In my rankings I have your Love On Top.

I’m tilling the soil so I can yield a good crop.

When it comes to loving you, I Can’t Stop.

Open your eyes, your ears and your heart.

We’ve learned from the past so let’s restart

Perhaps a cruise to Granada or St. Bart’s.

I wear my best cologne, spit shine my shoes, and don my nicest suit.

Don’t you know I’d Rather Be With You over having Bill Gates’ loot?

I’ve been trying to show you, perhaps Something In the Water can nurture our love that is a precious fruit.
