Short Poem...The Little Mechanic
« on: February 16, 2012, 09:50:09 PM »
        The Little Mechanic


Love is the engine that powers our lives.
It runs on the very blood that courses thru us,
but can just as quickly bleed us dry.

We inhale and exhale its fumes,
most fragrant,
knowing they can suffocate us in an instant.

The thrum and throb paces our hearts,
which will cease to beat,
if fate misfires.

So we must tinker and fuss, 
to keep the engine of our lives
running smoothly, strong.

Here's to the little mechanic in all of us.
Listen to him when he speaks.
After all, he just wants to help keep
your love running strong.

Losers quit when they get tired. Winners quit when they win.
