Reversed Roles.

Take a pen and ponder,
wonder around things not mentioned,
waiting for you to propose,
spend time trying to front,
I love you more than anything...

take a moment and wonder,
wait for you to make love,
wait for your skin to lay on mine,
look into your eyes for me...
trying to see what you see.
think of that kiss yesterday,
betray my heart everyday,
telling myself it wasn't supposed to happen.
Thinking it was the best thing done yet.

making memoirs on diary,
reading your diary,
asking what I meant to you,
wanting all I do.
Hold your hand an' bite your nail,
watch me turn you on,
lay here gently on your chest,
play with my hair, make a jest.

There is a mystery, that which you seek...
Am I part of it or far from it,
do I make you curious
Don't I tempt you?
Is there something in the way you feel,
that lasts forever, like what I feel.

I hide words and touch from you,
a rule in my book says I should.
Screw the rules I have you!
I'll call you love through eternity
I am yours come and take me.

Forget me love before I burn,
before I burn all your bridges past
till I am all you have,
till I am all you yearn,
forget me love before I shoot!
keep you my captive wound,
nurse your thoughts and dreams,
drug you with my every whim.

I wonder if roles reversed,
you'd love me
like I do you.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
