If Only I Could Poem by Leloudia Migdali

If Only I Could

Rating: 3.5

If only I could

The night is dark and cold
If only I could share the silence of the night with you
Warm my cold fingers into your two inviting hands
Feel my short gasp against your calm breathing
Share my kiss in two mouths
My heart with your heart
If only I could take you in my arms.

Words are adrift
No way to reach you
No way to escape
Your smile
Let me sink quietly into your smile

Tantalizing, mysterious, yearning, essentially lonely- - these are the words that pop into my mind after reading this poem about the desire to be loved. Pamela found the right word- -she is good at doing that- - wistful. Wistful is exactly what the tone is. Wanting, but like the puppy in the pet shop whose nose is pressed against the window, sometimes we can only wish to be noticed... Very expressive poem.

Sink quietly into your smile is a nice ending to this wistful romantic poem. So alone and cold, but still able to imagine the closeness and warmth of a romantic love. Nicely done. Thanks Leloudia.

Let me sink quietly into your smile so tender touching and yes romantic if a bit heartrending. The poem is kinda … old world charm It starts with the soulful opening of “if only I could”…setting the tone for what’s coming. The mention of night dark and silence add up to powerful demons that start gnawing at ones mind; like all mystery …making one crave to get to the bottom of it…! ! ! Then you veer off into tormented longing and painful rumination of unremitting desire. I am not sure what you meant by…”Share my kiss in two mouths”… well… lolzzzz… not everything in a poem is easily understood…or needed to be understood. Very nice liked
