I've Got It Bad

As nimble fingers fly across the well worn keyboard
Usher plays softly in the background of my mind
If ever the glow of radiant love were obvious
I shout gleefully, “Hey, Mary! Here’s your sign!”

And I smile to myself in contented agreement
“You’ve got it, you’ve got it bad,” I type to the beat
Toes tapping to amorous melodies only I can hear
Head bobbing, and swaying here in my seat

Visions of my Martin float in and out of focus
While files and contracts stack higher on my desk
I’ll forge ahead positively with a smile on my face
Today will end with our phone call, like all the rest

“Press one for English,” her computerized voice repeatedly says
If I had my “druthers”, I’d prefer the insanity never stop
Automated voice response recordings lead me in circles
But I don’t mind as I gaze at his photo on my desktop

Tomorrow’s promised bliss soothes today’s rough edges
While yesterday’s aches are fading into a forgotten memory
Tattered hopes and torn dreams float away like chaff in the wind
Yet more than I could ever wish for is all that’s now left for me

His gaze is piercing yet gentle, honest and comforting
His touch is no less miraculous in its effect on me
Each embrace fills my heart with invigorating storms
Each kiss filled to the brim with his loving electricity

Paper cuts and staple snags merely minor battle scars
In my daily fight to get one day closer to wedded bliss
I knew love could drive a girl crazy, and they must think me mad
But I never knew loving this man could affect me quite like this!

Huh! Who would have thought... we'd be married 7 years by now? My heart remains as full as when I wrote this... even more so. (BIG HAPPY SMILE)

Very nice! I almost feel as though I read these two poems out of order, but it doesn't make then any less heartwarming. Very nice work, the descriptions in this piece are especially wonderful.

Mary, I am assuming every bit of this is true and that this is a magnificent time for you, wonderful. Of course your writing style is wonderful too, it flows with such ease. Great poem, and along the lines of Susan's comment, it's a good thing to have it bad. Thanks for the smiles. June

A finely worked write that gives the reader the ammunition to smile and wish s/he were in your spot. Those battle scars yes are minor. Your state of bliss will wipe almost all pain and not-so-great moments from your mind. At this moment too, I see an image of a happy lady tapping her feet to the beat of Usher, with a truly happy yet mysterious smile. Thank you. Good verses and greater rhymes. -Alan

This will leave everyone with a huge smile. Nice to see you in print. Yes, you do! Wonderful to hear the news in (throughout) the verse. You make having it bad, sound so good.
