Have You Ever

by Justin Cheatham

A short poem about living among your dreams



Seeing Life Along the Glass

by Greg Kilberger

To me, poetry is emotion. You can express emotion through the writing of poetry. You can convey emotion to others through the reading or reciting of poetry. You can discover and feel emotion by reading or listening to poetry. What is beautiful about this process is that these emotions do not have to be the same for the creator as they are for the recipient. Poetry is, often times, open to interpretation. This is why poetry can be enjoyed by so many people for years and years. Otherwise, only a scant few could derive any meaning from it.
Contained in this book are poems that have leapt from my brain over the years. Many are the result of situations or people that I have experienced, but not all. Some are from nothing more than my fancy. I hope that these works of poetry find emotion in you. Anger, sorrow or joy, all are welcome. Come, step inside.

AT FIRST SIGHT

She crept into my memory like silk stalkings;

Smooth and without much effort;

Flaunting a sexual attitude that was never subtle;

And without rebuttal,

I stayed in silence and played into the sway that shaped her slow motion approach;

I tried to show no intimidation,

But her presence made the very nature of my existence unstable;

If there is a smile that can launch a thousand ships,

Hers has the power to lead them home;

I felt all alone in a world that spun out of control as she strolled within a whisper’s distance.

It was this instance that changed me;

For I never knew that my heart could be stolen so easily;

But I could hear the beat fade as she proceeded to pass me by;

She then looks back with a passionate sparkle in her eyes,

Glowing in the acknowledgement of knowing that she was in control of meâ?¦

WORLD WONDER

She was a sophisticated lady with a natural beauty

Straight from the motherland;

With a genuine complexion, smooth as the sandy surface of glorious shores;

And a smile to cue the heavens to chorus.

Sexuality accented her vocabulary,

Balanced with similar substance in her stroll;

A physical wonder of the world and indeed a fitting mold;

Filled to the edge of perfection with no room for defect and I beg of her toâ?¦

“Please come my way!”

DAYDREAMS

We sit side by sideâ??

No words are said;

We barely make eye contact;

But in the back of our minds

We can both see ourselves

Connected to each other

In some fantastic manner;

Imaginary

But satisfying;

In a moment unrealized;

And hard to describe

Because in the blink of an eye,

Nothing is there.

Almost

Hiking under clouds singing silly songs alone with my son

he tells me about robots, computer

games and how much he

loves his mother. Would you like to know how much he loves her? More

than rockets or cars

or dinosaurs in

space ships floating off

through the universe. Almost, very close,

as much as I do.
