I wrote poems for you

I wrote poems for you


I wrote poems for you.

Some were bold, burnished, bright.

They praised your beauty, your body.

Burning for your

brilliant mind.


I wrote poems for you.

Some were sweet, silky, soft.

They were sensual, sexual, seductive.

Seeking to steal

your sacred heart.


I wrote poems for you.

Some were yearning, wanting, craving.

They were aching, thirsting, needing,

Longing to draw you

into my arms.


I wrote poems for you.

But they were just wasted

unwanted words.

You were always

someone else’s girl.

This the second outing for this poem written two years ago – no reason for reposting, except that I like it.

    Once again you call me from the shadows. Can it be you know the whole of my tale that you can speak so? True, my mortal host hides behind my façade, but it seems that you have pierced the veil. Thank you, for stirring the hidden soul.

    I always wonder, do the words gain their power from the reader, the one believing they belong to them or from the writer?

    No reason needed. It is your work and if it gives you pleasure to share again, then by all means please do so.
