Speaking Out - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Please, take me home,
I remember the address
And I am sure the place
Where happiness rests my price.
I knew all along,
I suppose, I stayed away,
I could not believe
That you wanted me to stay….

It preserved expectancy
To delay awhile
The distance of not knowing
Might change a tired mind…
I wanted to be prepared
But I’ll never be!
What does ‘ready’ have to do
With intimacy?

But really, I am out of chips,
This is my last deal,
One cannot continue to play
Against the rules…
Short little sputtering phrases
Do query express
Making one wonder
But I can not longer guess…

    A nice flow and open end with questions to make one think deeply. The sense of doubt and then understanding is nicely played out. (Report) Reply

    Dear Romeo
    With so much fire and passion in your belly, any girl would be lucky to have you, not only you are a poet par excellance, but a true musician at heart, and who can say no to beautiful music in its almost pure form, nature has blessed you with a gifted spirit, your way is from the spiritual world, sooner or later, your love will transcend to you level and come around
    Truly
