I have been reading your poetry and feeling your words. First of all I want to thank you for letting me read your works I feel blessed that there are people with talent such as yours that are willing to share their gift. Secondly I am an honest person and don't post comments that I do not feel in my heart and soul, I only ask that you do the same....a word with out meaning is like a heart without love....empty.


I long for someone to walk with me,
when the road is long.
I search for someone to touch me,
when I feel I don't belong.


I reach for someone to warm me,
when the night is cold.
I seek for someone to hear me,
when I have a story that needs to be told.


I beg for someone to hold me,
when the storms are brewing.
I call for someone to teach me,
when I don't know what I am doing.


I yell for someone to come to me,
when I can't find my way out.
I grasp for someone to lift me,
when I'm drowning in doubt.


I crave for someone to tell me,
that I'm who they dream about
I want someone to love me
when I do not love myself


I want to love someone
and to them belong.
Before my life is done,
I want to sing love's song.

ButterfliesDC~

Honesty among friends is the only
thing I know ... rest assured
I'm as good as my word.

'I want someone to love me
when I do not love myself'

Such a simple request, beautifully said.
You'll do a-okay in this circle of friends.

WELCOME

I think, that you captured my very essence in this poem, thank you.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your "welcome" and I hope that my opening didn't offend anyone. I should explain, my poem spoke of the things that I'm searching for in my life because for the most part they are the things I've never had.  I have had so many people in my life that spoke empty words that I often clung to and ended up as empty as the words themselves.  It was more of a request that each of us speak the truth and become real rather than become as empty as the words we say when we are trying to be what others want us to be.  When it comes to poetry I don't think that there is a more pure form of communication and I think that my statement was out of place here.  I apologize to anyone I may have offended. Thank you.

First of all, let me say welcome to Passions.  I have seen the sincerity of your replies and will let you know I sincerely think this was beautiful.  I see no way your statement could have been offensive to anyone.  It was simply asking for honesty in replies, something we all should be giving anyway.  Your poem captures the essance of the longing for a love never experienced...something I can relate to well...LOL  Anyway, it reminded very much of something I wrote quite a few years back.  I hope you don't mind me sharing it with you here.  It's call "Need".


I need someone to care for me,
Deepest desires share with me.
I need someone to hold me tight,
Shelter me from the cold of night.

I need someone with kisses warm
To softly guide me through the storm.
I need someone gentle and mild,
Carefree and innocent as a child.

I need someone to laugh and smile,
Strong as stone and yet fragile.
I need someone tender and true
To decorate my nights in shades of blue.

I need someone who'll understand
I need someone to hold my hand.
Yet someone with a shadow not so long,
They could never fully appreciate my song.

Someone who's eyes I can stare into,
Who's heart I could reach forever through.
Someone who can see all the needs I dream of,
And realize I only dream of their love.

Michael

Michael,
Thank you for your words of praise and most of all for sharing your poem with me, my hands shook as I read it and felt as though I was looking into my own soul with your eyes.  It was beautiful, and I'm grateful that you allowed me the pleasure of reading your poetry.

Butterflies_dont_cry, Welcome... to passions and what a wonderful poem to start with. I really can relate to this one. It reminds me of two I wrote recently, soft and heart felt. Your words are very sweet in their want. Do please post more.

Hi Butterflies-dont-cry,

Your poem was beautiful and I to have had many  souls in my life, and I have begged for the same feelings from them as I gave, but for what ever reason they could not return the love. I know that Gods see's my heart and some day he will bless me with what I desire the most and that is as your poem says.

Thank you so much, and WECOME TO PASSIONS

Cerenity and Tracie,
I want to thank you from the bottom (and top..lol) of my heart for your "welcome" I truly feel at home here with others like yourselves who have been through the same trials as myself and feel that I am for once understood and accepted for who I am and not judged by the pain I hold within me.  You are so kind.  Thank you doesn't begin to say what I feel. But I think you know.

Welcome to the family. Please check your email!

I don't think anyone would be offended at your request for honesty. And since your poem is heartwarming and lovely, you need not worry that anyone would not like it. I look forward to reading more of your work.

A beautifull piece, it certainly stuck a cord with me and judging from the other replys with many others as well. Your words captured the feeling very well.
Honesty and love is not too much to ask for.....

Poet and Eagle One,
Your words are more than that they are a hand reaching out to welcome and accept me You can never fully realize what those feelings are like to me.  Thank you so much for your sincere views.

Your poem comes from the heart and that is clearly evident. I think you speak for many of us in your desires from a person. That is all of what a relationship should be.
