I want to tell you that I leave your scent on my skin 

that during the night I hold my wrist up

to my mouth to drink deep breaths of you.


I want to tell you that your fire consumes my flesh

that when I am with you the burning makes me feel alive

and I want to give my heart to be engulfed.


I want to tell you that my dreams are filled with your smile

that you are with me even there in my secret places

and I want to close my eyes just to see you.


I want to tell you

I want to tell you

that I am falling in love with you

but I know better.

Your first paragraph makes me wish... This seems so real right now for you...I wish for U that it's true. I miss your poems shell, come back. You make my soul want to drink deep breaths. Your style is pure heart wrote.

Thank you Van...you made me blush with embarrassed pride. I am glad that you enjoyed the piece as it is very real to me...but, Love and I have never been good friends. Thank you for your wishes. I hope the same for you, my Soul Drinker.

Tell him! Take a chance! Let Go! All things I want to tell you after reading this... but I would be a lying if I was to say I think love/loving comes easy. I have had to reconstruct my heart, building a two way door into the wall that surrounds...

I have had to reconstruct my heart, building a two way door into the wall that surrounds it. Your words a brilliant in this piece Thanks for sharing

Thank you...and I am thinking perhaps I should become friends with Love. And if it doesn't work, I am already drinking buddies with Rejection. Either way I don't have anything to lose ;o).

Your heartfelt words are the feelings of so many. I like the simplicity.
