a sticky situation

by Shonda Creemer

for me ~
walking and talking
are two very dangerous
tasks ~ if performed
at the same time

you see ~
if my steps get distracted
by your words
we might collide

and leave me with this feeling
that I've just stepped
in your sidewalk gum

stretching my heart
to it's limit

Interesting...this is at once personal and yet generic at the same time.

I love the image I see in my mind from this one. Nicely done.
