I Need Love

You have done it again

With unprecedented ease

You took an opportunity to share

And I heard my heart snap

You know I care so much

And would do anything for you

So when you said those words to me

It felt like you were standing

On the broken pieces of my heart

I am in a place

You know little about

But waving your love

In front of my face

Makes me ache with unrequited love

And hurt for the one

Who would ultimately pay

For what you wanted in a brief moment

To fulfill your own primal needs

My eyes look brightest

Whenever I see you

My heart cries out

To beat only for you

My entire body

Yearns to be near you

I speak “I love you”

It falls on deaf ears

It is ridiculous

How much I need you

And you don’t even care

Love At A Distance

You turn to me to kiss me

And hold me in your arms

Passions burn brightly

We become consumed

Left basking in the glow

Of love in the afternoon

Alas it’s just a fantasy

That someday you’ll be mine

And dreams are all it will ever be

As you kiss your wife

Loving her endlessly

Without a thought for me

You take me into your arms

Holding me tight to your chest

I can feel your heartbeat

And I am certain

You can feel mine racing

Gently you touch my chin

Lifting my face towards yours

Then with a caress of the cheek

You pull me into a kiss…

This is the daydream

I have dreamed a thousand times

But your wife’s picture

Is set upon your desk

And you barely say hello to me

I’m lost in thoughts of you

Most every single day

But I am only furnishing

In the corner of the office

You notice

But don’t really see

Impossible Dream

She was in love with him

Had been for years

But she knew she didn’t have a chance

It was a hopelessly impossible love

Sometimes late at night though

He would text her and “talk” for hours

He was miles away though

And now he found someone else

She was happy for him, truly

But she still had dreams at night

Of being in his arms held tight

And he grabs her face oh so gently

He kisses her for the first time

It is everything she thought it would be

But morning always comes

With a new day without him

And she still silently hopes

Someday it could be her with him

(I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s Day. I know I am a little late with the wish but I am well know for my tardiness!)

Know It

You did it again

And you don’t even know it

You made my heart skip a beat or two

You let the butterflies loose inside of me

I have to keep my mind on track

Or you’ll have control there too

Because every time you look at me

I lose a piece of my heart to you

And you don’t even know it

Not The Time

his manicured hands
lightly brush against mine
only for a second
but I feel the electricity
he talks and I can’t help
but be drawn to his lips
how soft and warm
they appear to be
his eyes dance
when he starts to laugh
then suddenly turn gentle
with a softened look
I know he would hold me
if only I would ask
the temptation is so strong
for I feel so all alone
but this is not the time for passion
he’s only just a friend
who’s more than I could handle
and all that I’ll ever want


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – temptation


Fire in my heart
Desire in my body
Thoughts only of you
But it will never be
You see me only
As a friend
Someone to talk to
Not a body worth touching
Someone to laugh with
Not a heart to beat with
But in my eyes
We are bound by more
We know each other so well
We are souls entwined
In a closeness that is
A once in a lifetime union
If only I could be enough for you
