All Shook Up


The timeless secret of the universe
is a lover’s long-shot gamble at play.
Some sense it is a high and mighty curse
and know it’s a sky rocket price to pay~

This biologic cracked phenomenon
is crazed-instant-attraction chemistry.
Mad-magnetic pull on women and men
when “me” soon becomes a brisk “we”~

Zooms from lightning's take-over bid
drive emotions to a climatic high.
Its strikes can blast a head's fixed lid
to an exposed risk and primeval cry~

It’s the clinquant seductive explosion
of a passion fruit’s eruption in Spring.
Aching moan of a brassiere undone;
the lust for a rushed diamond ring~

Skylight that pierces bright leadlight
harlequins the hues of the heart.
Waves crash to a thundering height
with Mt. Versuvius volcano’s start~

Its the merry-go-round spinning
the gut-sick-wrenched lover around.
And the giddy rider clinging
to faint and collapse in a mound~

The timeless secret of the universe
of crazed-instant-attraction chemistry.
can make us all shook up and yet
true love may take time and reason to be~
