About the Poem
This poem was written about a guy who came into my life just after I broke up with my first love. Because we started out as friends, my feelings for him developed slowly. So slowly that I didn't realize they were so strong until about a year after we met. We kissed once while were hanging out and then one day I found myself sitting in class and thinking about him. As my thoughts progressed I began to resent him for bringing out feelings in me that I promised myself I wouldn't allow to happen for a long time. Then, I realized he did me favor by allowing me to have feelings again. And by end of the class I had written this poem.
How Dare You
|by LaTiefa Alston|
|How dare you walk into my life at the eleventh hour,
Causing confusion in my world and seizing the power
That I possess over the feelings I choose to have for a man,
You weakened my wall by holding my hand;
By being the man that I miss
And showing you care in just one kiss.
How dare you walk into my life through the back door and unannounced;
Leaving me dreaming of every moment
we've spent together and thinking of every ounce
Of desire I feel to have our souls connect in such passion that it's surreal;
To feel your heart pounding against my chest,
To be entangled in each other's arms,
My lips kissing your neck as your tongue explores my breasts;
Back and forth, up and down,
On the floor, in the shower,
'Til my head rests on your chest at the morning glory hour.
How dare you walk into my life and expose these thoughts that
I have buried for so long,
That I have been able to suppress
So that I may go on;
You've put me in a spot from which I cannot move,
You've made me vulnerable again,
'Cause you're so damn smooth.
How dare you do this to me,
But the next time you do,
I'll still let you in . . .
If you keep doin' what you do.
