Excellent poem. I love it! Great emotion and expression. Keep writing!
this is my bf. spooky
I recognize AND appreciate the way you expressed that irresistable desire to love and 'want' that love. I was amusingly surprised with the end! I found myself nodding, with a smirk, thinking, EXACTLY! Thank you for the smile!
Oh my goodness, this poem is the best that I have read in this category! It sent chills up my spine!

You To Me

Like water
You are to me . . .
I have seen you
Rage like the sea.
And I have seen you
In placidity.
I'm frightened of your depths . . .
Will I float if I jump in?
I'm so very tired of seeing
Everyone else get to swim!
I gather my courage . . .
To you I run so fast . . .
As if the Devil himself were on my ass.
Blindly, I leap . . .
And all is quiet
No cries spoken . . .
As I lie on the rocks helpless
And broken.
I'd forgotten
While on shore where its safe . . .
That like water . . .
You can be cold, shallow . . .
And fake.
