Under My Skin - Poem by Edgar John Jackson

I never had the right words to say to you
I never had the voice to say: I love you
And my heart trembles when you are before my eyes
I never wanted to let you go before you realize
How much I need you…

I just let you walk away
I just loved you in this way
Without saying to you: I need you by my side
That you are every once of me
But you will never see
What I talk about and I have denied
‘Coz it’s under my soul and my skin
As original sin…

I just long to touch you all night long
To whisper a sweet love song
And make a woman out of you
But it was dream about you
‘Coz I never said to you
I could risk my life for you
Getting me close enough to you…

If you could read my mind
There wouldn’t be reasons to find
Love in any other way
‘Coz in me… you can stay…
