Sometimes you see exactly who it is you love, and you still love him.

And Then I Had Not One Delusion

By Nordette N. Adams

You are nursing an affliction:

I did not see your long day's journey into addiciton,

the restriction then eviction

of you into you.

It seemed like you were coping

but that idea reflects more my eternal spring of hoping

that your moping and worldwide web doping

I'd misconstrue d.

I was strung out on the Internet

but you're undone boosting Google hits and forever bet

your life's digest and love's regrets

on cyber tools

and are topsy turvy

in a mood

needing lithium

or the steadiness

of blind adoration.

It ignited the turbines of my imagination and fueled the engine of my thoughts... "And then I Had Not One Delusion" I have read, and from an exquisite poem I have learned.

Viva the Poet!

In respect and admiration,

Cutting and sharp, with a softness of sounded words, Nordette. With wisdom spurred by Time and Age. What comes next, after 'Internet lithium'?

I spend more time than I'd like on the 'Net, but like Richard, have deleted most of my social networking 'clubs.' Here and You Tube is where I spend most of my time. Don't need anything else or more stress. Much more clearer headed. :) Well done, Nordette!

(((HUGS))) and love, and Merry Christmas, Karla.

Unless I am reading this wrongly. Someone has bi-polar, hence the word lithium. That drug was prescribed for me a few years back. So I like the poem but I am ubsure who has the illness?

I know some writers that make the
internet an altar to be worshipped at.
I don't understand it at all. Of late
I've deactivated 3/4's of the sites I was on.
A good piece Nordette that some may
interpret differently than I.
Happy Holidays ...
Blessings and luv
