Salacious episodes popping like crackers

Sunday Whirligig given words:
fragments erotic light dark gone  change 
dream watch clock eye theft leave erotic

3WW given words:
woozy uptight thoughtless 

Fragments of his memories or
just figments of his imagination
Salacious episodes popping
like crackers all heavy and juicy
Light and dark images dancing
in the shadows gone berserk

Nothing had changed in his routines
But must dreams raucous and ravenous
keep appearing in the still of nights

He watched the clock ticking when
startled from his slumber eyes blurry
Theft of his sleeping hours would leave 
him woozy but he remained uptight

He kept asking but answers eluded him
What could he do to rid off the dilemma
He had not been thoughtless but still his
head kept spinning his thoughts numbed
Not that young to be privileged with
erotic dreams he persisted to get answers
He would like to dream again tonight!

For MMT's Sunday Whirligig #27

  1. The mind can be a tricky thing as one gets older

  2. I've got older but my mind feels the same it's just the outside framework changing.
    Loved the poem Hank, can always rely on you for a good read.

  3. Dark as these images are, I had to laugh with the last three lines. Dreams can cure daily discomforts for sure, though "nothing [changes] in routines."

  4. Love the dark & brooding images.. excellent write :)

  5. One can always hope for good dreams!

  6. I had to smile at your closing lines - disturbing though the dreams are, it seems they are intriguing.

  7. As you get older dreams are your only comfort and how welcome is sleep.

  8. an intriguing difficult to understand the way of minds...enjoyed the last portion...

  9. Oh the mind can play such tricks with us. Keeps us on our toes when we are youngvand daring, as we grow older we needvto be patient with ourselves. To slow down to accept our aging gently and be grateful in good health. Enduring in healing.

    Much love...

  10. As always Hank your title is a cracker - and i say to him - dream on...why not! :)

  11. A dream is a good thing if its helpful.
