Good Guy Lost - Poem by Richard Stilwell

Embraced in the rythm of an eye closing hug,
Standing on the front porch and the welcome rug,
Is where I left you after a mine blowing night,
Of discovery of laughter of doing what is right,
But in my heart I fought with my mind,
Of wanting to kiss you and take you for mine,
Into my bedroom for pleasures beyond fun,
Where we would blend into each other and collapse as one,
Now the dream is over and I have lost,
The chance to see you again was not worth the cost,
Of the lack of action for being a gentleman__

    The Good guy can win, there can still be a happy ending. Thank you (Report) Reply

    I like this, especially the first two lines; the syntax is perfect and the image vivid. And, hey, i think it's something that goes through all our minds. (Report) Reply
