The Visit

I saw you and my thoughts were unkind
 I wanted you so bad that I was out of my mind
 Deciding that the feelings were true
 So I picked a day to go see you
 
And it's down your street I drove
 Eyes wide open like a scared little doe
 As my knees almost caved
 One last look in the mirror I gave
 
And my finger bent as I rang your bell
 My mind was racing in a temporary hell
 I leaned over kind of in a craze or a magnificent daze
 For these were the directions you gave
 
Maybe I could see you a different time
 The relief made me want to lie there maybe die there
 
Immediately prepared to become your slave
 If and when for any time you gave
 And as I began to hate
 The crack around the door gave
 And standing there looking so great
 My emotions swelled my efforts had been paid
 I whispered, "So how are you?"
 You answered, "Good, so how about you?"
 We both instantly knew
 It was the love shinning through

    Another weekend is here and I have not read as many poems as I would have liked to this week. I am happy I was able to read yours today. Have a wonderful weekend Ruth. Hopefully I will be able to read more next week. Love, Carol
