Needed Just One Body - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You needed just one body to be close to touch.
You needed just one body to love you so much.
You said you begged and then you pleaded,
But you could not rush,
To love.

You said you wanted to caress,
And cuddle up...
In hugs.
You said you wanted nothing better but to coo like a dove.
But everybody that you met,
Pushed...
And shoved you away.

And I was there to have you cry upon my shoulder.
And, I was there to feel your pain pour from your soul.
But...
You never saw in me someone devoted.
No...
You never saw in me someone to love.

And I was there to have you cry upon my shoulder.
And, I was there to feel your pain pour from your soul.
But...
You never saw in me someone devoted.
No...
You never saw in me someone to love.

You needed just one body to be close to touch.
You needed just one body to love you so much.
You said you begged and then you pleaded,
But you could not rush,
To love.

But...
You never saw in me someone devoted.
No...
You never saw in me someone to love.
Though,
You'd cried and cried and sighed upon my shoulder.
And, the pain from you came pouring from your soul....
For me to hold.
