You liked to hold my hand when we walked.
When we were around people you kept
Touching me, putting your hands on me.
Not protectively, but gently laying claim
For anyone's eyes who might be interested
In what was yours.

Virginia, I never let you know how I felt
About that subtle clinging. You asked once
Does it bother you that I like to touch you like I do?
I just shrugged, turned away, not wanting to
Say what I really felt, afraid it would clash
With the macho image I had at the time.

After all these years I'd like to tell you.
face to face how I felt, but it's too late
I'm sorry. But your possessiveness, even
Though whisperingly delicate, sent jolts of
Pride throughout my body. I was so proud
You let everyone know I was your man

Well Jerry,
I have a sneaking suspicion that you aren't the only guy in that club. Men are notorious for not being able to speak their feelings. I hope you feel better getting it off your chest. ~L

Yes, I do, Lori, and your comments also made my day. Thank you.

That's one thing I like about poetry... recording your mistakes enables you to think more clearly and act differently next time.

This is very well written and I hope you've had better luck with the ladies since then. Thanks for sharing.

I did learn that women had those very same feelings, Alana, which made it all the more special. Thank you for being here.

Yes, Cerulean, I learned and was very happy to apply my feelings and knowledge to the women I came into contact with. That's the thing about about learning and loving, applying what you have learned is a sure fire way to reap rewards. I appreciate that you have stopped by.

Jerry- You're welcome. As for what you're doing: Perfect! Learning by trial and error can be a pain, but you have a great attitude about it.

Looking forward to reading more of your poems.
