I see love blooming to the
right and left of me.
and I dream sometimes
of love,
yes I do,
but closed tight am I
waiting for that feeling, just right.

I do believe I am tainted,
I prune the attentions of a friend
to the minimum,
can't give off the wrong
impression, that I might
actually be loveable,
you see.

But yet, I question the eyes of
strangers looking for
the possibility of Love At First Sight.
My only chance it seems
is for love
to pounce on me.

Fear of the hurt that lives in me
blocks my heart,
true love is not for me
I am afraid.

yes, I am tainted
I do believe.

Nice job there lovey.....now then....What's this about something "pouncing' on you? Or, would you perhaps like to be a tad bit more tainted?....And if you're not "loveable"...I can't imagine who is?

Look more deeply into the eyes of your friends! Sometimes, that is where true love is lurking, it will take you by surprise.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Ahhhh-HA! I turn my back for one lil minute and there is that other O&O hoping Toe will pounce on her... Geesh!!! Keep that up and I'll give her the chance to look in these eyes just before I bludgeon her with my baseball bat! LOL

Great poem, Lovey... (I'm not gonna say you're lovable... I will NOT! *G*)

But you are. *G*

lolol, thanks my very very nice suthern friend...

thanks my very very nice suthern friend lol

and in mine and toe's defense, I didn't say I was unpounceable lol, just tainted....well no wait, that doesn't sound like much of a defense....maybe I should just stick with my original opening....thanks my very very nice suthern friend

I like this line,

"I prune the attentions of a friend
to the minimum,"

and even "maximum" would work.

This gives one much food for thought.

I love it too! We can all relate at some time in our lives. But your NOT tainted, it's an illusion..
