Poem: Wanting You

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

Poem Summary

Wanting you is a poem about her wanting to believe in the words he speaks. She wants time to stop so she can feel his embrace enjoying the sensation of his love. She wants his eyes to gleam when she is by his side. She wants him to be happy for she wants him to be in her life.

Wanting You

Crushing pain floods her heart,
tears stream down her cheeks,
listening to his words
wanting to believe.

She wants to feel his embrace,
to taste his sweet kisses,
to suspend time for a moment,
enjoying the sensation of his love.

She wants to feel his heart
smile with happiness,
trusting in each phrase he utters
as his eye’s gleam with pride
when she is by his side.
