WITHOUT

Now I’ve done it.

Without having tested the texture of your lips
nor the sweetness of your tongue,
I’ve let myself fall into the nectar of loving you;
quenching my thirst like no other libation I’ve ever had before.

Without any encouragement and in the absence of fear
I’ve learned to thrive in the sun of your smile,
as if upon me it will always shine;
providing the heat necessary to sustain and maintain this life I now so love.

Without a single indication from you that the curves of my body
have captured your attention in any way,
I’ve mapped out a route of exploration and discovery on yours;
arriving again and again at a place of pleasure I’ve never before happened upon.

Without planning to, I awaken each morning to the thought of you.
Your essence you see, remains with me even when you have gone.
The sound of your voice, the light in your eyes, and the feel of you, all mine to keep;
a better gift I’ve yet to receive.

Without hesitation I close my eyes each night anxiously willing
sleep to take me yet again to wherever it is that I can find you.
No journey is too long, treacherous, nor arduous;
knowing that YOU are the final destination.

Without warning this feeling has possessed me.
My mind, body, and spirit are yours,
and one thing has made itself poignantly clear;
I no longer wish to be….

Without YOU,
Without You,
without you.

I know you didn’t write this for me but your poem inspired me to write a response from “his” point of view. The poor fool obviously has no clue how you feel about him or how lucky he is to have captured the imagination of a woman as truly amazing as you. I hope he comes to his senses soon.

Peace and Love,

SO SHY

Without the courage to be the man I think you need
Yet driven close to madness by a hunger I can’t feed
I’d love nothing better than to hold you in my arms
But self-doubt leaves me undeserving of your charms
If only I were better, stronger, taller, handsomer
Then maybe this fear my heart would conquer
But my heart seems hell bent on staying broken
My mind is numb to the slightest hint or token
And my guts fail me when I need them most of all
It’s in your presence that I doubt myself and fall
If only I had the nerve to tell you how I really feel
Then without a doubt I would be the man of steel
A superhero ever ready to fly to your rescue
But instead I'M JUST A MAN
Just a MAN
Just a man living life without you

Sharon because it had to be said! said...

@ Tony Oh: I know what you mean; I definitely know what you mean....Thanks for gracing my spot with your presence!

@ Zay: Oh myyyyyy, what do I do with you and that? I must admit you do know how to make a girl blush! Oh if only someone who had met me in real life and knew me in the amazing way you seem to existed....hmmmm, thanx for the fantasy in any event ;-)

@ Cage: Lookie here, lookie here at who happened to stop by ***big GRIN*** Now why you coming up in here starting mess?! My lips are sealed ;)
