When I say go

When I say go, I really mean stay
Stay and say what you shouldn’t say -
All the thoughts I see in your eyes
The desire, the passion, give it a try 
I want to feel the depth of your need
I want to know your forbidden beliefs
It’ll be our secret; No one will know
Not even my husband; I won’t tell a soul…  

For Nancy's "When I say...what I really mean is..." contest

    I see this got a win in SEcond Chance. Yes, it SO deserved to win the first time!!! I saw you finally did a new poem but can't go see it because it's a constanza.So I am guessing you got it done in time. I will have no time to judge for a while, but I can imagine it's going to be so difficult. Hope you are well. Joe will be home any second. Gotta quit my souping for the day. hope to get an email from ya soon. Luv, Andrea

    LOL, I had a good laugh here, Susan - hope your hubby has a good sense of humour ; ) You asked about the Norma-Jeane poem - I just wondered how Monroe's prom date would have felt when she became so famous - no idea why I thought that...
