I Need You

Painting: LoveJeux by @SophiaFine

I rarely slip anything
My mind is something like
an accordion.

When I expand it, it expresses
When it's nearly perfect
she undresses.

If my poetry has an agenda
its to befriend you.
To offer up a new perspective
a fresh breath reflective.

Pardon me if
from time to time
I force a rhyme.

Its a tribute
to both the showman
and the recluse

Something like a statue to
The poet, The poem,
and especially the reader.
I'm not ashamed to say
I need you.


  1. This is beautiful Theron!Your unique poetry compliments my painting so well...Thank you!

  2. smiles. it is a relationship where we feed off each other...the poet and the audience...nicely played...

  3. The art, Sunny's rendition of need you now and the words are stunning Theron.

  4. A wonderful collaboration Theron with Sophia's beautiful art :-)

  5. What a pleasure to read your poetry! "I Need You" is breathtaking ~ I loved "...nearly perfect, she undresses' puts the reader right in front of the mirror, standing near the *vanity* of light! I'll be back for more Theron! Great works of poetry here! ~Jem

  6. Nice write - rhymes can be troublesome critters :)

  7. Your stuff is so real, so honest. I love it.

  8. The rhymes, the honesty, the humility, the words AND their essence -- all in all, simply divine, Theron!

    Sophia's painting and your words here were simply MEANT to be!! The combination is lovely!

  9. love the sentiments.

    keep it up..

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Reasonable Words
