Crazed and maddened,
I search for you in vain-
Corrupted by desire,
one which has no name.

I yearn to drink-
from your lips devine,
secretly wishing-
you'd forever be mine.
Yet I will go-
with false pretense,
pretend not to care-
as you wish.

I'll just love your body-
for as long as I can,
create myself a boundary-
of where my heart may stand.

Because no matter how I wish it-
you're still someone else's man.

This is nicely written. I do not like the content but the poem is well written all the same.

Please don't think badly of me Marilyn, I've just had the worst of luck, falling in love with a man that's already taken.

Devina..
My heart goes out to you..I am in the same boat, and the damn waves are getting rougher
all the time..Hang in there girl and maybe
your boat and mine will find smooth sailing
in time! (((HUGS)))

I want to thank you Kitty for your kind words, it's nice to know that I can relate to someone else who's experiencing the same thing. I can feel myself in your poems as well.

devina...I do not think less of you for feeling this way. If you were to act on those feelings....that is another thing completely.

i feel your pain, only mine is the opposite,
i am the married man, and now my heart belongs to someone else who is unwilling to make a commitment. it hurts.

I can only think of one credible reason she might not return your feelings, and that's because she knows she can't be number one in your life right now. I hope things work themselves out for you.

I know where of you speak, as I've been there before. But I do not believe I expressed it so beautifully.

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

I can identify with this one. Been on both sides and neither side ever wins.

RS- thank you for calling this beautiful, when some would rather just condemn me for feeling this way about a man who belongs to another. Deb- your words are truly those of wisdom, if only one could choose the path to which their hearts would follow. much love to you!

create myself a boundary-
of where my heart may stand.

I love this line.....
hard isnt it?

No one can condemn you, we are all slaves to our emotions, arent we?

Thanks for sharing.

My heart was on trial and in the witness box having bled on oath...the jury said " they couldn't convict, not enough evidence"!

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it...

Devina -
I know it had to be hard to
feel enough to write this one.
Sometimes the heart can take us
where we'd never go on our own.
Hard to stay ... hard to walk away.
Hard to always color within the lines.
