ObliviousYou're the only one who cannot see,
This burning need inside.
This desperate want, this massive love,
I'm always forced to hide.
I want so much to tell you,
Just how you make me feel.
But I'll never have the courage,
To break this vocal seal.
You make me so confused,
So happy, so sad, insane.
And yet you never see,
The extent of all my pain.
I know its not your fault,
It's mine and mine alone.
I'm the one who fell in love,
The fault is all my own.
So I guess this is a plea,
Because you make my brain so hazy.
I need a break from all this hurt,
So please, stop making me crazy.
CuriosityI've seen the way you twitch,Curiosity4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When I brush against your arm.
I've seen the way you blush,
When I'm using all my charm.
I've felt your body shiver,
As my hands caress your hips.
I've felt your heartbeat quicken,
When you see me lick my lips.
I've watched your eyes get darker,
When I'm close enough to kiss.
I've watched your smile get wider,
When I press so close like this.
But I am a little curious,
And have been since we met.
I only have one question...
Do I make you wet?
SecretOh God, I love to tease,Secret4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To make you beg and groan,
To watch your body writhe around,
To hear your breathy moans.
I only have to whisper,
And you're putty in my hands,
I run them up and down your sides,
And you can barely stand.
My kiss, it leaves you breathless,
My touch, it makes you weak,
My words, they make you shudder,
They bring you to your peak.
Though I have a little secret,
Something I didn't foresee,
All those things I do to you?
You do the same to me.
UniverseI only wish to love you,Universe4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
To show that you're my all,
To make you understand,
I'd never let you fall.
You'd be mine to the end,
I'd wrap you in my arms,
I'd make you feel you're always safe,
I'd be your soothing balm.
I promise I won't hurt you,
Never play you for a fool,
I'd be first in line to shield you,
From a world so often cruel.
Its you I'd always want,
You I'd never leave,
There'd never be another soul,
I'd make you believe.
I know you might be scared,
Once done there's no reverse,
But I'll prove to you that all along,
You've been my universe.
I Love YouValentine's day is almost here,I Love You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I have nothing to show,
I'd like to get you something nice,
But what, I don't quite know.
I should send you something cute,
Maybe something sexy too,
Something sweet and something red,
To show my love is true.
It has to say I want you,
It has to say You're mine,
It has to say You are the one,
You are my Valentine.
And finally it has to say,
Those three words often said,
But I couldn't find anything to say all this,
So I wrote you a poem instead.
PussycatSome people think I'm tough,Pussycat4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
That I'm kind of mean in bed,
They think I have to call the shots,
Or else I'll leave instead.
I admit it might be true,
I may have been unfair,
I gave and gave and never took,
And hoped they did not care.
With you its all so different,
With you I'm not so fierce,
You and your dark chocolate eyes,
Sharp enough to pierce.
I'm running round in circles,
I'm all but turned around,
Can't work out which way is which,
You have me upside down.
I can't deny much longer,
My lies just fall down flat,
If you gave me half a chance,
I'd be your pussycat.
RememberI can't give you riches,Remember4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can't give you gold,
I can't give you warmth right now,
And keep you from the cold.
I can't hug you better,
Or cuddle you to sleep.
I can't chase your fears away,
Or help you climb hills steep.
When you're feeling sorta down,
Because the news is always bad.
And you keep on hearing things,
That make you kinda sad.
Remember there's one thing,
And it will be underlined,
I'm always going to love you,
With all my heart and mind.
KissI think I'll start with your lips,Kiss4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Just a kiss, to begin,
Then I'll get a little brave,
Make my way down your chin.
I'll be watching your face,
Looking close for a smile,
Then I'll move to your neck,
Kiss you there for a while.
Trace your throat with my tongue,
Feel you gulp once or twice,
Grin against your dark skin,
Know my kiss must feel nice.
Hold your face in my hands,
And I steal just one more,
This will not be our last,
Of that I am sure.
RawYou have no idea how much I want you,Raw5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
How I ache to touch you,
My fingers trembling with the need,
So much that I must keep them hidden in my pockets.
How can you be so deaf,
Can you not hear every last cell in my body as it screams,
Screams at me to reach over and pull you close,
To cover every last inch of you with my mouth.
It seems as if the pounding of my heart says the same,
As if it is thudding against my ribcage,
Fighting to burst out of my chest,
To go to yours where it will find true contentment.
I gaze at you with hooded eyes,
Wondering whether you can see the raw desire in them,
The powerful need to feel you,
To make love to you slowly, forever.
I burn with the longing to enfold you in my arms,
To hold your feelings within me,
To take care of them so you don't have to,
To love you, more than life itself.
BrokenI don't know why they call it a broken heart, because it's not, really.Broken4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It's more like your heart is trying to break apart, but it never really succeeds.
It's like it's literally trying to pull itself into two, and struggling to function correctly in the process.
And oh, it hurts.
If you've never had a broken heart you won't understand, you probably think it's an emotional thing, like it's all in the mind.
But it's so much more than that.
It's a physical ache in your chest, a painful whine that just doesn't quit.
It's a kind of pressure, compacting your whole chest area and making everything inside hurt.
Then it rises, it forces its way up into your throat, forming an aching lump that pushes tears from your eyes.
And then you're crying because it's just impossible not to do so.
And even when you're all cried out, it's still there, this indescribable ache that feels like no other ache you've ever
Requited Confession Is....is it wrong that I so desperately want to kiss you right now...? The words had left my mouth before I knew what I was doing. I turned away from her, cursing myself inaudibly, Fuck...Requited Confession6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
She watched me, confusion written on her face. I continued our momentarily paused walk at a much faster pace than before, gritting my teeth and enduring a horde of angry thoughts inside my head. She caught up with me and opened her mouth to speak, but I cut her off.
You don't have to tell me, I already know the answer... I avoided her gaze as we walked swiftly to my house, which was only a few more minutes down the road. I shouldn't have said anything, I muttered, more to myself than her, its stupid of me to think that it could ever work, that it would have been possible... She remained silent, and thanks to my averted gaze, I couldn't gauge her reaction.
Damn it, I've never done this bef
OwnershipShe would have me,Ownership5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
She would kiss me and caress me,
Love me in her way,
Want me and desire me.
She would send me silly texts,
Giggle and laugh with me,
Cuddle and nuzzle me,
Sleep in my arms,
And wake with me.
She would possess me,
Become jealous over me,
Keep her hand in mine,
Show the world I'm hers,
And that she belongs to me.
And I would smile,
I would agree,
I would return her attentions,
Her touch and her kiss,
and I would lie.
And in my dark and lonesome hours,
I would cry,
Let my heart bleed onto the pillow,
And wish a thousand times a second,
That you would have me instead.
ProposalI've got your purple car,Proposal4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And your flash Miami house.
You can bring your dog and cat,
And I will bring my mouse.
You will have a study,
And you'll get a big surprise,
'Cause stuck above the study door,
Will be your Nobel prize.
We'll make love in our king size bed,
Our pool, your desk, wherever,
In front of our warm fireplace,
During the coldest weather.
You'll make me kind of crazy,
And I'll do the same to you,
But no matter what is said or done,
We'll always make it through.
So I guess it's down to you,
It's you who holds the key,
You are my one and only,
So will you marry me?

I want to soothe your troubled mind,
Kiss those tears away,
Shelter you from the world,
Just for a while.
I'll be your rock,
Your unmoving piece of strength,
Your constant source of warmth,
A shoulder for your worries,
A home for your heart.
I'll murmur words of love,
Promise I'll always be here,
That I'll always be yours,
And how that will never change,
Not for one second of my life.
Sleep here in my arms,
Hear the beating of my heart,
Each thump made just for you,
Let it chase away your fears,
Let me love you.

And for you it doesn't matter,
You have it all tied up and bound,
All trussed up on a platter.
I don't know what you want,
I guess I'm at a loss,
You're just so hard to figure out.
Its hard to get across.
I cannot be more perfect,
There's little that I lack,
But I'd change myself so much more,
To make you love me back.
Of course there's other girls,
There's lots of them around,
They smile my way and bat their eyes,
And make those kissy sounds.
They only make me sad,
'Cause I yearn for something true,
Something that I cannot have,
My dear, I yearn for you.
Sweet TortureHow am I supposed to act normal when you hold me like that?Sweet Torture5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
How am I supposed to control my breathing when every time I inhale I am assailed by the sweet scent of your hair?
How can I refrain from kissing your neck when my lips are but a centimetre away from it?
How can I hide it when my eyes betray my desire?
How do I keep my hands off your skin when only the thin fabric of your t-shirt is standing in my way?
How can I stop myself from pressing close to you when I can feel your thighs brushing against mine?
How will I stay quiet when my body throbs with need?
How do I keep my mouth closed when the words 'I love you' are trying so hard to escape?
How will I let go when my heart tells me I can't?
How will I survive when it's time for you to leave?
Please, tell me how, because I'm scared to death I'll never know the answers.

Scared I'm not enough,
Scared you'll never love me,
Scared someone else will be better.

Upset because you don't want me,
Upset because you're not crazy about me,
Upset because I just can't get through.
I'm not jealous...I'm hurt.
Hurt because you make me feel so much,
Hurt because you don't feel the same,
Hurt because I'm not the one.
I'm not jealous...I'm worried,
Worried I've been waiting too long,
Worried you have passed me by,
Worried I've lost my chance.
I'm not jealous...I'm stupidly in love.
PatienceSo, I'm supposed to wait, am I?Patience7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
But who for?
Am I waiting until I'm ready,
Or until you are?
I often think I'm waiting for a sign,
A sure sign that there's something there,
That I'm not imagining it,
Or seeing something that isn't real.
Then sometimes, I get a sign,
And it has me puzzling for days,
Wondering whether it means one thing,
And then I stop,
And wait again,
Hoping the next sign is clearer,
And tells me what I want to hear.
what do I want to hear?
That what I feel is okay,
That you feel it too?
And even if I was sure,
Would I be able to tell you,
that I feel this way,
That I love you too?
I doubt it,
so you know what?
I'll do what I've always done,
And what I'll always do.
I'll just wait.
HabitsIts in the way she smiles,Habits4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And in the way she sighs,
The way her hair has gentle curls,
The colour of her eyes.
How she's clumsy like a puppy,
Yet stronger than she looks,
And sometimes when she feels the need,
She really likes to cook.
Its in the way she walks,
And how she likes to cuddle,
Its in the way she's so damn smart,
She leaves me in a muddle.
Its how she's soft and oh so warm,
And sweeter than she knows,
Its in the way she acts all cute,
And how her accent flows.
Its all these things and more,
That put me in a whirl,
That make me give a smile and think,
Damn, I love this girl.
Hayden's Musings Do I feel guilty? Sometimes. When I'm imagining you, arching beneath me and surrendering to my touch, I feel guilty. I feel guilty when you're sat beside me, and all I can think about is pulling you into my lap and kissing you senseless. I've watched you study hard, listened intently to the quiet noises of frustration you've made, seen frown lines mar your brow and wanted to kiss it smooth again.Hayden's Musings5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
When you're really confused you bite your lip, and I have to look away. I can't help wondering whether you'd do the same in the heat of passion, and the thought brings a blush to my cheeks that I have to hide. You never notice, which is something I'm grateful for. If you knew how much I think about making love to you, you might send me away in disgust, and I couldn't handle that.
I wonder if you've ever gotten that close to one of your girlfriends. You never talk about it if you have, you never talk about them at all, not to me. That new one you have,

When we're cuddled up together on the sofa,
When I fall asleep nuzzled into your neck,
And I wake up still wrapped in your embrace.
I love the way it feels when you hold me,
When your chin rests gently upon my head,
When your arms pull me close to your chest,
And your heart beats hard against my cheek.
I love the way it feels when you touch me,
When your hands dance across my skin,
When your lips trace a path between my breasts,
And your body moulds itself to mine.
I love the way it feels to love you,
The way my spirits lift whenever I see you,
The way I feel so complete with you near,
And how the rest of the world ceases to exist.
But I hate the way your crystal blue eyes,
Those revealing crystal blue eyes,
Remind me again and again,
That you're still in love with her.
The Saddest Smile'Did you love anyone?'The Saddest Smile6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Her expression becomes vague,
Your image swims before her gaze,
She smiles softly,
Closes her eyes.
One night only,
She wanted to spend with you,
Just one magical night,
For all the ones she couldn't have.
She wanted to lie by your side,
Feeling your lips tickle her ear,
As you whisper words of love,
Whilst holding her close.
She'd stop time in its tracks,
Just for this one moment,
Make it last a lifetime,
Or at least for as long as she could.
She imagines a kiss,
So sweet it takes her breath,
So soft it feels like heaven,
So loving it feels unreal.
The breeze brings her back to earth,
Caressing her face in the afternoon sun.
She chuckles sadly,
A concealing smile on her lips.
'No, I've never loved anyone. She says.
FoolishIf I was in love.Foolish5 years ago in General More Like This
I'd tell her every day,
With every gaze, every smile,
Every gentle touch and kiss,
With every gesture I make.
I'd make her feel,
Like she's the only girl in the room,
In the world, in my heart,
Which she is and always will be.
I'd carry her bag because,
I'd never want her to be weighted down,
I'd hide my troubles and fears,
Just so she'd never hurt.
I'd show her she's beautiful,
Tell her she makes me weak with desire,
Every time she gives me a lingering look,
Or smiles in happiness.
I'd wait forever and a day,
Just to see her one more time,
Never once tempted by another,
Because she would be the only one for me.
I'd be foolishly devoted.
If I was in love.

"I was just thinking..." Uncomfortable now, Hayden avoided eye-contact with Grace as she tried to explain, "we've been together a long time now...we're settled...I thought maybe we were ready to take the next step..." Grace mulled over the words, trying to fashion a reply that wouldn't crush her spouse's feelings.
"Hays...I don't know if I'm ready for that yet..." Grace saw the disappointment in the slump of Hayden's shoulders, but her wife smiled bravely and her voice was only a little hoarse when she spoke.
"You're right, its too soon...I'm sorry I woke you up..." She turned over and curled into a ball so her back was the only part of her Grace could see. Hayden often slept in this position, and it had

That doesn't mean I think of you,
every minute of every day.
It doesn't mean I want you,
Long for you,
It doesn't mean I lie awake at night,
Wishing you were beside me,
Feeling the cover caress my skin,
And imagining your hands doing the same.
It doesn't mean I'll cry for you,,
Hope you're there when I'm lonely,
or sit and pine for you,
When you're away.
It doesn't mean I'll get jealous,
When you're with someone else,
Forgetting that I'm here,
Waiting to see you.
It doesn't mean that I'll be sad,
When you reject my subtle advances,
brushing them off with a laugh,
Like I'm only joking.
No, It doesn't mean anything.
Perhaps it means all of these things,
And I'm just afraid to admit it.
