You Say....

you say you love me….

would you kiss these lonely lips
           wanton and aching
with all the passion they long for
                  and lust hungry red)

would you touch this starving body
with hands as desperate to caress
as this needy skin pines for
roaring out thunder in its fire
bursting flames of desire

tell me…would you love me
like it’s the first time
            (like the one you never forgot)
hold me in arms tough enough
to weather these lightning storms

I am told they can be quite tempestuous

is this forever…I want to know….

eternity is a long time….

is there a guarantee that it won’t end
with my brown eyes weeping
lost amid the drift of solitude 
wailing out regret for trusting
tears of raw ripping blood
that fall beneath the ocean 
         (I formed at my feet 
                          with past scars)

will I watch the sun shine fade out
on a windy shore fraught with storms
    as you ride off into the sunset
just a  ghost now of that perfect man
that once said he  “loved” my heart

now astride a black stallion
             a wild dash out of here
legs clenched to muscled sides
          as he gallops out of sight
my heart broken in disrepair

eternity is a long time....

what if I were to fall…a blind plummet
do you have the strength to catch me
do you have the patience it takes
to endure this wild red headed girl 
with sad eyes and strange laughter
                  tumbling out at odd times 

“confusing and exasperating”
contemplating universal concepts 
      at inconvenient times
when you find it least interesting

tell me can you endure

you say you love me….

will you reach through the clamor
        of a naked heaven 
         black and bruised 
      and capture my heart 
       like a strong man can
and hold it in work rough hands
        (the heat may burn your palms)

          a timid hummingbird 
       that wants to fly a free sky
  but wants to stay inside your arms
always battering the cage of its prison

so tell me

do you love me?

eternity is a long time…..

    You ask many questions of your loved one, Christie. I hope you received the answers you need to hear. Eternity is far too long to wait for affirmation of love. Such a beautiful poem! Love, Carolyn

    Oh, my my my dear, miss Christie. eternity is a long time. I honestly, don't think I could endure it with anyone, sad to say. I like being the lone wolf. :) But you? I hope with all my heart you find it and it never lets go. love you girl, Kristin

    So full of angst and desperation boiling to the surface. "Eternity is a long time..." ties it all up together. An eternity of patiently longing for the loved one to finally see the love waiting there for him. What a marvelous write!!! Fred
