Born of woman,

Joining the world through sweat, blood and pain

But that’s changing

Perhaps never to be the same again

 

The Last Poet...

                                         by Karl Stuart Kline 7/8/2001


When I was young,

I thought my life would be brief...

Now I’m older

Much to my surprised relief

 

But still I know

Just how short a life can be

And have lost friends

Irreplaceable to me

 

Life still is short,

But more than I expected...

An adventure

Greater than I expected!

 

My drink is strong

And my women spirited

They’re also sweet

And utterly devoted

 

Beauties all,

I give without restraint my heart

Sometimes saddened

By those who are so faint of heart

 

As to deny

The Adventure that could have been

So shortsighted

That something Special goes unseen

 

Intelligence

Doesn’t come with a suit and tie

Sweaty Love won’t

Come knocking with a smile that’s shy

 

Sometimes it comes

Around when it’s least expected

A touch and smile

Promising pleasures undetected

 

Leading onward

To a tryst with your sweet lover

Scaling the heights

That leave you amazed when it’s over

 

Finding you’ve reached

The pinnacle of your desire

You’re all sweaty

And your hammering heart’s on fire

 

Then quick descent

As you and your lover relax

Holding memories

And each other as you come back

 

To Normalcy

That’ll never be the same again

Back to a life

That’s painfully inane and mundane

 

Born of woman,

Joining the world through sweat, blood and pain

But that’s changing

Perhaps never to be the same again

 

And pristine births

Lead to spotless lives without passion.....
