circus psycho
they said in Louisiana it would rarely snow
but along came an arctic snow storm
a perfect escort; for my beau
scientifically lean, abstract...
a real circus psycho
blindfolds, surmises, suppression; limbo
an eclipse of critical thought
emotionally frozen, treacherous...
my last night of passion
seemed like a hundred years ago!
i hoped interfusion would melt the snow
but silent words of warning returned
as i heard the rooster crow
found myself dominated by an Egyptian pharaoh
i was once pragmatic; now my lucidity a dream
said bye bye to sanity as it flew out the window
they said in Louisiana it would rarely snow
but i've lived through the longest winter
wishing for sunshine and the perfect rainbow
mama's time to buy that boy a ticket
and ship him back to California, Fresno!
so next time my sha darlin' when you think you know
dont be fooled by the words of a circus psycho
if you're looking for music; try the ole banjo
and never give an icicle a taste of your summer's glow
for he is a fake; a confusing pretense...with no real credo
he will make your last night of passion feel like a hundred years ago!
Author's Notes:
word bank words:  night of passion     surmises     dominated     psycho circus    pragmatic
suppression    scientifically      interfusion     eclipse of critical thought     silent    abstract
thank you Travis for these inspiring words that prompted my wayward thoughts...a humorous look back and lessons learned...

Well, I do see a deeper story in this..... Brrr to that last night of passion, I got the chill.
You sure used the word bank with genius! 
Loved the title too.

Oh my!!! Now this spiked my senses for sure.. I am flying on your words and rolling around in their wonder.. What a fantastic write. I so loved the 'Gone with the wind' flair to the style.. The way you made the sound of it flow..


This a keeper.. Because 'Frankly my dear, I do give a damn!' lol

"never give an icicle a taste of your summer's glow"...fabulous line...I LOVE it. Awesome second stanza too...such a whirlwind of emotion. I can relate to this poem. Well done Linda...such a great message within. Girlfriend...I swear if you added a rap beat and a little background music you would have a best seller here! Good stuff....yum yum, your summer's glow looks delicious!!

I enjoyed this, its takes you places not many poems venture to, so long as you can follow that is. I had to read this twice to fully appreciate what you were going for, but I think I have a better understanding after the second time around. I look at this poem as a critic would a good movie, I can't wait until others see it.
