Love Me Like That

Everyone asks me that question
...what is love really all about?,
The answer to what love is not hard to figure out.

Someone to hold me warm and tight
when standing on a busy street,
bringing me in close...then closer
with no intention to move his feet.

Even when a beautiful woman
strides so confidently by,
his arms stay in place around me
and he never raises an eye.

Most men seek out perfection
the model who stands apart,
only my man looks beyond that
and chases what's in his heart.

I want to be loved like that
in a way we know is real,
expressing our raw feelings
too obvious to conceal.

Why not let the whole world watch
and make them jealous of you and me,
just two average people brought together
to show how simple love can be.

    Oh this was nice! As a poet who writes almost exclusively about the matters of the heart....this poem was very much appreciated. Sometimes it seems like love isn't popular to write about anymore...thanks for this one! MC

    This is a lovely quatrain poem! It has a light and warm feel to it, and it flows pretty well. A real nice description of love.

    Hi Kelly! For many love can get pretty complicated, but you show that simplicity is enough to form a true love which is strong enough to keep a relationship on a solid basis! Full marks to these delightful lines! Best regards // paul
