You look at me
I look at you,
words unspoken
between us two.
Perhaps it's fate
maybe destiny,
I do believe
Desire's not just in me.

Ny timing soff
so you say,
still it seems
I should stay.
You like the game
and so do I,
I do believe
we see eye to eye.

I close my eyes,
I see you there.
Run my fingers
through your hair.
I kiss your lips,
you take my hand.
I do believe
you understand.

I do believe
I want your heart.
I do believe
we should start.
I do believe
we could be good.
I do believe
if you only would.

Well put. I can feel the nervousness of the proposition.

Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.

If all it took as believing.....liked this much.

Thank you everyone. Brad, if you read this, I'm sorry I didn't read my E-mail last night until after I had posted all the poems. With all the excitement of finding this site, I went a little crazy. I tried to E-mail Brad back last night, but it wouldn't work--I'm kind of new at this computer stuff. So please accept my apologies for going so crazy and writing so much. I will spend the next few nights reading others, which I already do a lot, and writing. If there are certain rules where can I find them? E-mail me.

Thanks again for all the support.

Lee (alias) just me
