Once Upon a Time....

You ask me to express the way it is that I do feel
Yet you refuse to do the same
To express in heart, what is real

You have plainly stated  no relationship you do need
Yet than you say you want me
I ask .. for lust? in hunger  do you feed

You prefer that I date no one pledge my allegiance to only you
Yet for me you make no time
Each day your busy with things that you must do

You say I never want to see you hurt, for than you would so feel bad
Yet from me you keep such distance ,than wonder why it is Iím mad

My response to you is this......

I can not express to you the feelings in my heart
For what would be the purposes
If you refuse a relationship to ever start

If you only want me for your lust, I will to you than feed
My body my soul with you Iíll share
Yet not my heart, for this you have no need

My allegiance I can not ever pledge to you ,my time like yours is valuable
Filled each day with busy things in life that I must do

In the end the truth will forever be just this
Fear not that I could be than hurt, by the passion of your kiss

But I ask that you know this.......

Your words expressed are the opposite of what your actions do convey
They lead me to confusion of what you are truly truing to say

What I find to be important are not the words that you convey
It is instead by way of   what you donít say , by your reactions, to what it is I say
I find you most compelling I am intrigued by the person that you are
Your sweet caress your laughing eyes yet, you remain to me a distant star

In my heart I know your secret , you present it loud and clear
I could never be the one you hurt , for it is you who live in fear
If you seek in me, my love for you, than you must understand
Spider you must let down your guard, allow me to take your hand

By doing so a friendship will build on truth not, on empty words or shame
One that will surpass all time, by choosing to take a chance, to end this stupid game
I promise that I will share my time with you, if you will do the same for me
I promise to unlock my heart, If you take a chance to see a person real within me

The choice is yours, you can not have both your cake and eat it to
If you choose for lust than you must agree, to consequences made by you
You will never know what lies with in me real, by the choice to not embark
Upon a journey one of chance, to be than hurt  thus taken by every UN- knowing heart

If you Ignore me and you choose to walk away
I want you than to know this poem was written for you this day
A poem just for you my cherished Spider my gift of verse and rhyme
To remind you always that until you take the chance of heart
You will never know The true meaning
Of Once upon a Time

Some people just don't want to commit but they want commitment from others. It sure doesn't work that way, does it? This is very well expressed!

Very well written.  It is amazing how some people want it both ways...just refusing to commit to anything.  They are the ones who lose.
