Addicted - Poem by David Barlow

I am not in love,
But I am drawn to you,
Like a Moth to a candle flame.

I am not in love,
But I am craving for,
The taste of your lips on mine.

I am not in love,
But I am wanting you,
In my arms, bodies entwined.

I am not in love,
I am wanting to give,
Loving, care and tenderness.

I am not in love,
Or just wanting sex,
I am simply addicted to you.

    '...Like a Moth to a candle flame...'
    says so much, but worth reading on. This one, too, personalizes a something that can be applied to almost anything one feels inexplicably drawn to.
    Nice work.

    I love the simplicity of your words David
    They are plain and simple yet are coupled with a passion the lady would understand. She would understand because I'm sure she feels the same way about you.
    You are both fortunate people and whatever you feel towards one another, be it friendship or tenderness, just wallow in your newly found happiness...

    if not 'lust' maybe 'infatuation or worst fatal attraction. Nonetheless, , , a nice poem. (Report) Reply

    Well, if not love, perhaps it's 'lust.' Both L words and a bit of both is a good thing as is this dandy of a poem............marci.xo (Report) Reply
