One Such As You

I have felt this tug before

On my heart.

I have fought this war of wars

Against the intrusion

Of one so gentle as you...

I have turned my back before,

Yet wanting more and more

To be wrapped in the embrace

Of one such as you,

Hands out stretched with

No promises except for this

Day...minute by minute,

Time flies,

No time for lies.

We must speak not of love, must not

Question our being together,

As others pull at us,

Not knowing what we need.

Let us feed each other tender kisses,

Gorge each other with embraces that

Feed our starving hearts...

Yes, I have been on this road before,

Where the signs read,

Remove all blinders,

You are headed for a fall!

    Cynthia, a good poem. sometimes we are lead to a path in which we accept lies and all...but your ending truly inspired me with a nice smile. love the tenderness, and needy heart images along the line... xox~PD
