Not Feeling It

Every time we kiss
Every time we touch
When are bodies are close together
Or I feel your breath on my skin
It's wrong.

There's no spark
There's no heat
There's no love

I don't blush when I look into your eyes
When I see I get I text from you, I don't get butterflies

I want to want you
But I don't

I stroke your neck and you caress my waist
And I make no point in remaining chaste

But there's no feeling behind it
And I don't know if there should be

It doesn't feel wrong
But it doesn't feel complete

I think of you fondly
And often even
You've become such a good friend

I wonder if you think of me
But I hope you don't
And fear you ever will

I say that I don't believe in love
And I'm not sure that I do
But it's something I'm starting to feel deprived of

Our arrangement keeps me free
But this just isn't working for me
Nothing seems to keep me happy

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
