~Unrequited~

Of all the things I've never done,
and all the things I've still yet to do ...
I'd trade them all away in a heart beat,
to be lying there next to you.

For the beaches I've never walked on,
the oceans I'll never see ...
I'd gladly forfeit their beauty,
to drown in the depths of your intensity.

There is so much I've not yet seen or done ...
so much of me remains unrequited.
Still I'd pass on it all ...
to live inside your heart ...  so sweetly invited.

Of all the languages I've not spoken ...
all the love songs I've not yet heard,
I'd give my ability to speak ...
just to inspire in you ... but a single poetic word.

For all the delicacies I've not savored ...
the fine wines I'll not sip.
Without hesitation I would starve ...
for just a taste of you on my lips.

Of all the pleasures I've yet to know ...
the contentment still not found within.
They could never compare ...
to the ecstasy of this anticipated sweet sin.

One might say ...
you cant trade away what you don't possess or hold.
Still I'd sell my soul in a second ...
to have carnal knowledge of your secrets untold.

This is just a fabulous piece! Certainly worthy of inclusion in the book.

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

This really is enjoyable. Just a little naughty but nice. I believe I have had the exact same thoughts but could not have written them like you have. Thanks.

It takes a lot to reach into your heart and put words to all those feelings and twinges and longings, but you have done this with style Janet.

What a lovely poem you created there
I hope for you that you wish comes true
Thank you

The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Janet your words never fail to touch my heart, another truely beautiful poem.
