What I Wouldn't Do

I write, read, crochet, sing, and play musical instruments. A sucker for learning.

Poem #6

For a drop of affection

Staring at me from afar

Your loving eyes

Fluttering longingness for days past

The exact measurement of my shoulder

To the side of your torso

The soft hold of your palm when you draw me closer...

Closer to the food counter

That one night filled with sweetness and reluctance

I know I would give my time

To think of all these things

While waiting for you

Because that is all i have

And I hope that you give me yours too
