Easy


It is hard to find people
With whom it is easy to be

It is easy to abandon
The here and now
For the promise of
What might be achieved

Chasing the illusion of
Lovers not quite long past
Giving up daily pleasures for
One more regretful repast

It is hard to find people
With whom it is easy to be

  1. the first line came to me in natural speech. I liked it so much, I stopped my conversation and wrote it down. I really like the rhythm of this one…and so I’m heading into the studio with Tim this weekend to add some music to it.

  2. An assignment to consider:
    Be with the one with whom it is easy to be
    Bask in the presence of the one
    with whom you experience the most glee
    Let pondering of past liaisons go free
    Bury past love illusions and just be
    With the one with whom it is easy to be

    Will be interesting to hear the music!

  3. love the flow of your poem and i like the extension to it that tamster brought to it. it’s interesting looking at it from both perspectives.

  4. Thanks, Lissa. The rhythm and play on the verb ‘to be’ are fun. Feel free to jump in and add to it…we can make this a collaborative poem. I’ll write a line, you add to it, pass it on…
