Ecstasy

Ecstasy

That moment
when the smile
seems to never stop
and the heart is full
of complete joy
As you lay
breathless
and spent
It is then you know
it was worth the risk
The feelings will not last
but caution is already
thrown to the wind
You will ride
the high of euphoria
grasping at the gossamer
wings of dragonflies
Wishing that maybe
this time the ecstasy
will continue
You know the gamble
will not pay off
and you will crash
and burn
all the way
back to earth
But it will be
worth the price

    I like the thought that one suspects the gamble will not pay off but does it anyway.

    OMG Christine!! This is such an amazingly wonderful piece!! I love it, love it!! You captured it so perfectly!! Loved the thought of knowing the price and being willing to pay it anyway! Knowing you are walking into an inferno and being willing to be turned into ashes for the thrill!! Seeking ecstasy is like an addiction, to be sure!! Bellissimo, Christine, Bellissimo!!

        Oh, Christine, You are so Sweet!! All I can say is that you and your words deserve all this praise and more!! Really, My Dear, This is an Awesomely Stunning poem – and I read a lot of poems. I especially loved your ending lines:
        You know the gamble
        will not pay off
        and you will crash
        and burn
        all the way
        back to earth
        But it will be
        worth the price

        so perfectly describing what we all do!! Love it, Love it!! Thanks for writing and sharing this!!
        Chuck
        xoxo
