If only you would touch your hand to my face...
Push the blowing strands of hair behind my ear...
And kiss me with so much love that I hear Pavarotti in my head...
Like in the movies...
If only you would bring to me Romance....
Wrap your arm around my waist and dance with me....
Hold me in the moonlight...

If only you would look at me with those eyes that melt me so...
You would give me butterflies....
If only you would find a reason to celebrate Us...
And would you bring to me candle light on a checker-ed tablecloth?
If only you would touch my bare arms so gently...
Calming me like a cat, purring past my chair...
If only you would show me such romantic love...
Let me know that I complete you, just as you once completed me...
If only..... if only....

I used to gently brush your cheek
You pushed my hand away.
I used to tuck behind your ear
Until you cut your hair.
I loved to kiss your lips
But now you turn your head.
I dare not bring you romance
You'd likely shoot it dead.

A long time now, I look at you
And all I see is red,
The candle burned the table cloth
Because you went to bed.
We used to be so passionate
Until you got your kids,
Since then you have no use for me
I doubt you know I live.
Whine not to me of days gone by,
You've taken what you wanted,
For me the bank is empty,
I've nothing left to give.

Wow! Glad my words could be of some inspiration to you, INclan! However, this was not quite the response I was looking for! lol Something more romantic maybe?

Vividly done, dear. I can more than empathize with this piece.

I loved it. It perfectly describes my own longings. (if only...... I could write like you!)

many people can relate to this poem. So little can express it like you have.

If only ... I could write like this. I admire anyone who can write good free verse ... I am a hopeless slave to rhyme, and it gets very frustrating at times ... perhaps you could give lessons? (or pointers)


I'm reading this one again ... maybe I can glean some small insight ...
