Just a Tick

You brushed my elbow today
And my heart leapt

How is it that I
With all these miles on my dials
React with the optimism and excitement of the young ?

Still keeping at bay
The cynicism age promised.

Managing to learn nothing
From mistakes

Knowing in my heart
I would trade a century
For five minutes of pure joy.

Is not a moment , just as significant as a life ?


On one today.

Arunesh dixit
Heart leapt and those five minutes of trance are very well narrated and gives the reader a sense of joy and awesomeness. Fantastic work ....


Yes! Precisely!!
I agree!

Your reflections on even the small, fleeting experiences of your life are always so thoughtful and elegantly composed. Always a pleasure to read.

I love it! The very idea of guys our age still feeling the Joey of a teasing sensual encounter is wonderful and...factual😜!

What a nice poem! You are a fortunate man.

All the lines are wonderful.each better than the other. You made me smile at the truth behind this poem, because when it comes to love, each one is brand new. :)
