Pain Reliever
Author: Marion Carroll


I saw you there, across the room;
and my heart skipped a pitter pat.
My eyes grew wide, my breath was short,
and I'm not normally like that.

You smiled my way, my knees got weak;
I turned to make sure it was me.
Though I dared not believe it, still,
no other woman, did I see.

I'm not sure what YOU had in mind,
but my thoughts turned salacious, then.
I laughed a little to myself,
because I'm never so brazen.

The moment passed, but I was left,
with a tingling joy, all day.
Now in my dreams, I talk to you
and here are the words that I say:

If I could plant thoughts in your head
you'd be overcome with fever;
I'd like to take you to my bed
and give you my pain reliever.

Then you laugh at me and pretend
to be overwhelmed with such pain;
and I HAVE to apply first aid,
to your body again, and again.

And I'll be darned, if you aren't skilled,
with medical knowledge yourself.
My patient becomes my Doctor,
and your healing, is so, "Top Shelf"!

Now I wake up, every morning,
with a wicked smile on my face.
It's hard for me, when I'm at work
to be composed within my space.

So if you pass me in the hall,
and I blush and turn around;
it's all your fault, because you smiled,
and my feet are still off the ground.

Hey MC! You genius you! Infatuation. Yes. I like the physician analogy you use in your poem. Pain Reliever. So is he your extra or maximum strength? You always have me cheesing when I read your works...

Truly creative MC!

If there were a "He", he would have to be prescription strength! You're so cute!

I'll have to get the thought police after you.
You too Meridian.
On a more serious note, It's quite a write.
Keep it up!!
