YOU BETTER FIX THIS WOUND BEFORE I PACK UP AND GO


I need you to love me,
when im feeling slow.
I need you to hold me,
when it gets to cold.
I need you to listen,
and brake my fall.
YOU better clean this
wound, before i pack up
and go.
I need you to touch me,
with your body and words,
I need you to say, our
love is stronger, then
this cold, cold blow.
YOU better clean this
wound, before i pack up
and go.

    i like it... raw and young and no apologies for expectations... i find myself apologizing for expectations... but i also see there was so much more that wasn't said (Report) Reply

    I hope all works well
    in your soul
    so the infection does
    capture every cell in your
    being
    then, then
    no hope left
    a glimmer now
    the touch possible
    if this poem
    does what its supposed
    to do (Report) Reply

    Love from a man's point of view, very clearly stated in this force to be reckoned with poem David. I think there is a 'to' in there that should be 'too' Nice work. 9 from Tai (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
