Repeat That

You speak the words

I try to keep up

But it’s hard to assimilate

What you really mean

Are you saying

That you still love me

That I alone

Can meet your needs

I have dreamed of this day

And want it to be true

But I need to know

Do you mean I love you

In The Name Of Love

He stands in the corner

A grin upon his face.

I know he’s up to something.

What trouble will he instigate?

Then I see his target.

The grin grows on his face,

Giving away the truth.

To stop it, I may be too late.

But I slowly approach the victim,

Afraid to get caught in the fire,

And whisper the dangers ahead.

She just turns to me and smiles.

She knows what is coming

And doesn’t mind at all.

Because she knows he likes her,

Their true love is quite bizarre.

Closed For Repairs

Can we even fix this

Is there an easy way

To fall in love again

Distant for so long

It seems we are strangers

if only we can rectify

the space between you and I

and find a way to embrace

what we discover as the start

of something brand new

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – August 30th

Fandango was a day late and a dollar short… does that make me two days late and in need of a two dollar bill? 🤔

Anyway, this is a poem originally posted here .  Check out more flashbacks from FFF here .Better yet dig back into your archives and joins in the fun!

One And Only

Just in time

Let’s start a rhyme

One of love

Sent from above

About devotion

And a lot of emotion

One never ending

It’s affection I’m sending

Straight to your heart

It’s where it all starts

So believe me when I say

I love you today

And for ever after

I’ll shout it from the rafter

You are my one and only

Without you I am lonely

Is It Just Me

I am like everyone else

I want love

I want to be needed

I want to matter in someone else’s life

But is the heartache and tears

Worth the struggle

Or am I just the abnormal one

Who finds more work than support

Sees more take than give

Feels more hurt than help

In every chance I’ve had at love

Matters of the Heart

Let’s keep it simple

No highfalutin words

No sugar coating

Just stripped down to the basics

Tell me the truth

A one-word answer

Yes or no

Do I still matter to you

 

I feel ignored

You barely touch me

You don’t show affections

Just a quick kiss hello and goodbye

Tell me straight out

A one-word answer

Yes or no

Do I still matter to you

 

You matter to me

But I will set you free

If you no longer

Want to be with me

 

Tell me the truth

A one-word answer

Yes or no

Do I still matter to you

Do I still matter at all

Twilight Texting

Words written in the dark of night

Between two souls lost on love’s journey

Neglected by those who say they care

The two speak of love and lust

And a time they once were together

Forgetting the ones who are asleep

They reach out to each other

In hopes of finding a shred of love

To fill their lonely hearts
