Love Me Like That

Everyone asks me that question
...what is love really all about?,
The answer to what love is
...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.

This kind of love is not so easy to find these days, but every now and then, someone like that comes long... Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my poem, JT. I appreciate it very much!

I have tried to post a comment on one of your poems, Funom, but a "System Error" keeps occurring. I contacted Poetry Soup about this and hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Such a tender write and undeniably true. I think there are standards here by which relationships can be gauged.

Thank you once again for taking the time to read and comment on my poems. I appreciate it very much, Mark... I've always found it funny when people who have such high standards wonder why they can't find love. Simplicity really is the key to unlocking true love, I think :)

What a beautiful piece of poetry, as a romantic I wish that poem could come true!

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

Thank you so much, Joe... I don't really know that much about love. I wrote this poem to express how I think love should be. Just my "ideal" kind of guy, so to speak :)

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

Thank you so much, Paul... I think it is so important to show your true feelings and be open with a partner when in a loving relationship. Keep things simple, rather than expect too much from love and it cannot fail.

How lovely that is Kelly, you have hit the nail on the head, that is exactly how love should be, but I am afraid in this world today it's not all like that, I like to think I have a perfect love, thank you for this great read my dear and take care......Vera

Thank you so much, Vera. Its sounds like you have found the perfect love that we are all searching for in life. No, love is not always going to be like it was in the fairytales we grew up reading, but still I hope to find someone who can love me for who I am :)

No it is not, Matthew, and love is not always so easy to recognize when it comes our way, either... Thank you for reading and commenting so kindly!

Hi Kelly, you expect far too little from love. I would love you much deeper for the way you write.I am reading your other ones now

Thank you so much, Jannie... I guess I've never really had much luck with love and relationships, so that makes me feel less confident in myself, like maybe I don't have much to offer in a relationship? But, sometimes success at love really doesn't take that much at all...

True love is a world within a world..my first thought after reading your poem my poetic friend
