About the Poem

This poem was written in about 15 minutes, but the feelings behind it were around for much longer. If you have neither fame nor love, it is easy to see many similarities between the two - similarities about which you want, need, and dream about. I've thought about them both many times. When you read my poem, you will know what I would choose, given the chance.

15 Minutes

I want to change the rules.
Instead of fifteen minutes of fame,
It should be fifteen minutes of love.
Everyone is entitled to fifteen minutes
Of pure, uncensored, unbridled love.
Fifteen minutes -
fifteen minutes of blindness,
Overwhelmed with bliss,
For fifteen minutes -
For fifteen minutes nothing else matters.
Love matters.
If everyone got it -
Everyone would get it.
Just fifteen minutes -
Who needs fame anyway?
