Like Mercury Colliding

It’s day 16 of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, 2020!   What’s the challenge you ask?

“…to write a poem of over-the-top compliments. Pick a person, place, or thing you love, and praise it in the most effusive way you can. Go for broke with metaphors, similes, and more‘.

Home, Sweet, Home -EM David Tux

Like Mercury Colliding
by Michael Doyle

Like a goddess on high
She's the sun in my sky
The tears I'm dared to cry
And all the wonder in my why

She's my angel divine
The reasons to love that are mine
She's the one for whom I've waited
So desperately I am fated

Like mercury colliding
She's source of my priding
And maybe it's coinciding
That she'll always be the one I'm riding

Who I'm speaking of, of course
Is my Andalusian horse
Who takes me to the stars
Far away from noise and cars

Bringing me to the top of the world
Straight up with toes curled
She's the dream of my dreams
And in my coffee, she's my cream

Wordlessly wiser than wise
Speaking volumes with her eyes
Filling all my days with plenty
Without her, I'd be empty

She's the glam in my glamor
The way she moves makes me stammer
Stage struck with a sledge hammer
Hitting me like spam from a spammer

I am daily caressed by desire
Lit up fully as though on fire
Of her, I know I'll never tire
When it comes down to the wire

Who I'm speaking of, of course,
Is my Andalusian horse
Who takes me to the stars
Far away from noise and cars

Bringing me to the top of the world
Straight up with toes curled
She's the dream of my dreams
And in my coffee, she's my cream
