* Lovers In The Back Seats At The Movies* - Poem by Ken e Hall

Two young lovers in the back seats of the movie house
Beautiness cuddliness loveliness holding hands,
Youths pleasure, everyone quiet as a mouse
The flickering light shows a Caliph riding across the burning sands,

Riding hard to save a captive princess his love of many years,
The two, oblivious to everything except each other's touch
This caliph, has the princess in his arms certainly with no tears,
An' wow this hour they love each other oh so much.

A mighty sword flashes across the screen and downs the Devil thief,
The victor frees his love and lifts her on to his horse
Then rides off on to the horizon goodness his belief,
A movie we all love with a happy ending of course.

OMG our young lovers are still kissing
Wake up little Susie what a movie they've been missing,
A flashing torch makes them end their date
For he did say 'I promise we won't be late'

    Lovely words to take one back to those wondrous teenage years. Reading this poem I was filled with so many emotions I had felt such a long, long time ago. (Report) Reply

    Absolutely brilliant stuff! I wonder why this beautiful poem has an average rating of only 5.9 from 22 votes!
    My dear poet Ken,
    From me you get ten!
    From the readers' comments I see that this poem has greatly rekindled the ladies' memories, but not much of the gents'. I remember the movie that I had seen with her:
    We saw the movie ' Neither The Sea Nor The Sand',
    On our very first date, all the time holding our hand. (Report) Reply

    Well Ken I must say this one really made me blush. Two lovers at
    the movies not even paying the least of attention to the silver screen.
    They were more or less looking at each other. I remember some of those
    times. Oops! please don't ask what was the movie all about (smile) . Enjoyed
    this Ken. (Report) Reply

    What's not to love?
    Silver screen / dazzling dreams
    Debonair / touching her there
    White hot sands / and hot hot glands
    Feel good end / feel good end (Report) Reply

    Reminds me of when I was a teenager, thanks for the memories, as Bob Hope used to sing. (Report) Reply
