I watch you from across the room
As you light your cigarette
The blue smoke swirls
In front of your chiseled features
I know why youíre here
The same reason you always come
You ask me how my day was
Making an effort at small talk
To make it seem like you care
I tell you about my day
As you watch me with those eyes
I can barely look at you
As I ramble on about nothing
My eyes catch a glimpse of you
As you unfold from the chair
And slowly walk over to me
Stopping in front of me
I look away and close my eyes
I feel your hands rub my shoulders
As you whisper to me
How much you care
I wonder why I let myself fall
As you place a soft kiss on my neck
I try to resist your sweet words
And soft caresses every time
But Iím not strong enough
To turn you away
Hoping one day youíll stay
And hold me close as
Your heart pounds and your breath slows
And you realize that you belong to me
And I was made for you
But I am always left alone
Tangled in the sheets
As I watch you leave

Interesting work.

Excellent expression, Rosepetals! I hope he wises up someday before it's too late.

I enjoyed reading this...reminded me of a married man that has to go back to his wife...who of course he doesn't love because he's messing around...but he enjoys the safety of his obligation to return to her and the luxury of an adventure.  James

Thank you for all being so nice.  I wrote this poem a couple years ago. Since then I have woken up..and moved on.    I realized it wasn't meant to be.  That's ok though because I am much happier now.

Rosepetals,

Glad to hear that happier times have found you.  Liked your poem....so full of emotion and lonliness.  Looking forward to more of your work!!

RosePetals~
This was very well done.
I enjoyed your thoughts.
Glad you've moved ...
but also glad you kept this memory
of where you were.
Thanks for sharing it.
