A Pocketful of Poesy was and is again a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog! For 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and now for 2017 and going forward, you may expect to see 365 poems every year, 366 for leap years. Try the RANDOM button to sample the sometimes surprising breadth of quality (and in several Novembers, breathtaking quantity as well), or click the "ANY GOOD" label* for those poems labeled with it. On any poem, old or new, feel free to offer your remarkable insight or critical acumen.

*I haven't yet revisited many pockets and stretches of time to appraise and label the "any goods," so some are missing. Please feel free to point out omissions, or - especially - erroneous inclusions, in comments.

but aren't they all random?

Be Alone With You

I want to take your hair up into my hands
and breathe through it
I want to look into that look in your eyes
so long that I
can see what you see through it,
I want to make that tied-for-first move
I can see
you're right there too with me,
and you,
and her and him
and all these other dudes

I wanna be alone with you
I wanna be alone with you

I want to take your hand, pull you
right out of this place
And nobody's gonna notice or worry
or wonder why
I want to take this moment in hand -
it's more urgent by far than what was planned
and we can always come back later, to say goodbye
but

I wanna be alone with you
I wanna be alone with you
I wanna be alone with you

I want to take your hair up into my hands
and breathe through it
I want to feel the shape of things to come
and maybe push them along,
I want to chase this thing we think we just found
all over each other until we pin it down,
and it would be kinda weird
to do all of that
with all of these people around

I wanna be alone with you
