Boomer’s Ramblings “Of Love and Lust”

When I started to think about the difference between the two feelings in the title, I was at work. Wondering about my own indiscriminateness . Am I a lustful person? OR am I a loving one? I like to think I am the latter. I have promised myself to a very lovely woman who, at this time, lives two states away. It is hard for me. Not that I long for the feeling of the flesh. It is the feelings of the heart for which my desire burns. (I think I find a poem in there somewhere). Of course there is a big difference. Lust is the feeling one gets when the person sees something they want or desire temporarily. Love is the feeling one gets when they decide wholeheartedly it is something,or better yet, someone they can’t (oops!) don’t want to live without. Resilience and patience have taught me that there is almost nothing I must have. However, there are things I long for and would rather not be without. Love being one of those things. So, as I am working away and discover I am no less human than the other guys. The beauty and the smiles of the women that come into my store may brighten my day. The lustful feeling of want does not take over my heart. As I am determined to live a life of love.


Disclaimer: I could have very well erased “can’t and oops”. I chose to leave them in for various reasons. A. I am human and do make mistakes. B. It sort of lends a little lightness to the blog. C. I just plain felt like it.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
