Do you know you take my breath away,
Do you see the way you make me feel.
God, I want you so desperately ...
I'm to the point I would beg, borrow, and steal.
I didn't intend for this to happen,
I didn't plan on feeling so attracted to you.
This fantasy has become my reality ...
and I'm lost in knowing what to do.
I didn't know this was gonna be so hard,
Why do you have to be so far away.
There are so many obstacles to overcome,
Fate has dealt a hard hand to play.
I'm always trying to remind myself ...
there is so much we still have yet to see.
And I have to be honest and realize,
if you knew the truth, you'd let me be.
I wonder if you knew my depth ...
if the intensity would scare you away.
I wonder if you knew my need,
if you would even want to stay.
I feel so many things tonight ...
I don't even know who I am.
There are so many things that hold me here,
but right now I simply don't give a damn.
So I sit here alone, confused and consumed ...
wondering if I'm on your mind like this ... or even if at all.
And I'm holding my breath and praying ...
while looking for a soft place to fall.

* thanks to DH, for the borrow of the poetic line(smile)


 The stars shine so bright, now's the time
I close my eyes - soft wind touch my face,
Cool sand upon the place where I once kissed you
And held you close.
Now I will reach for the stars...
Because Oh my love, that's where you are...
Though the storms of black night rage on
I still see your face
I still feel your lips on mine
And though my heart feels all alone without you
I still hear you sing to me
I still hear your voice on the sea...

JM, there is no greater compliment than for a poet to use your lines.  Take all you want.  Take me to, no begging necessary, but we must steal the night and borrow the moon.
Really liked the poem. Pretty intense stuff.

This is beautifully done.
Sounds like you need to just let it happen.

You may be confused but you do it so beautifully and with such grace. this was sensational and as always made me smile. this person who you are writing about surely feels the same way about you. i just got this feeling deep down in my heart. go with the emotions...it's a bumpy ride but in the end you just might be glad you did. take care & love ya,

AMY

Absolutely stunning work, Janet...you have me breathless and in disbelief..you took the words right out of my head it seems and laid them in a truly beautiful poem.  Wow..wonderful.
