About the Poem

This poem is about a man I long to love, yearn to hold, ache to touch. Still, we share the words "I love you" and each time those three beautiful words spill from his lips all the aching, all the yearning subsides and I'm filled with such a lush peace that the world around me floats away. I love this man, I would walk to the ends of the earth to hold him in my arms and call him mine.

It made me ache to read this. Quite moving. I can relate, although my desire is pure lust, no love. Reminds me of someone who drives me crazy and consumes my every thought since I met him five months ago.

There was so much emotion within your words, I could actually feel it.

I'm Jennifer. I was simply googling my maiden name at work and realized my old poem is still around. I'm so pleased to know that it touched someone's heart. I love the comments. Unfortunately, me and the man in the poem did not live happily ever after. it wasn't for a lack of trying though.

Lustful Longing

Tell me what I'd have to change. Who would I have to be
To slip into your arms; for you to make sweet love to me.
Must I climb the highest cliff; swim along the ocean floor
Crawl over broken glass - would you demand that I do more?
Could you take me as I am, with my issues and my flaws
Pull me to your chest without a hesitation or a pause?
Slide your hungry tongue between my parted lips.
Run your anxious fingers along my quivering hips.
Wrap me in your passion, expose your every need.
Press your steamy lips to mine, every secret freed.
Sprinkle your tears across my cheek, confess every desire
Moan my name, call me yours, and set my soul on fire.
Need me more with every breath that slips into your chest,
Please me nightly, miss me daily, never compare me with the rest.
Grip my wrists; look in my eyes, and say the words I long to hear
Kiss me roughly, and weep my name, forever hold me dear.
Do I ask for wishes that could never quite come true?
Is my sin, my greatest fault, that I can't stop loving you?
