Poem: One and Only

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"My One and Only Love" by Jeff Carson


Hold her close,
tell her you want her,
kiss her
like she is the only one.

They have traveled
upon this road before,
her heart aches,
she is too weary to wait one more moment,
for the man she used to know.

No more days
endlessly waiting,
for the moment
he decides
to put her first,
for the moment
when he understands
she is the only one.

Forbidden roads,
broken trust,
she is not a player
in this game
he plays.

Deceitful words,
spoken half-truths,
he seem to be a pro
with not one blink in his eyes,
she realizes it is not his first rodeo.

He must close the door
on his deceitful ways,
make each moment count,
show his devoted love
for her,
understanding words are meaningless,
for her heart no longer believes.

He must hold her close
showing her how much
he wants her,
kissing her,
letting her know
she is his one and only love.
