    In another time
    …another life

    We were lovers

    Like the ocean
    Caressing the sands of its shore

    We’d be good like that.

    In another time
    A deeper, richer time

    When people did what they would say
    And “I LOVE YOU” meant more than
    PHYSICAL INTIMACY

    I would have loved you…

    In another time
    …another place
    When word was bond
    And honor traced the steps our lives would take

    An older time

    When men stood in the presence of a lady
    And you brought flowers to dinner
    Wine…on Sundays
    And chocolates on fun days

    You know

    The way your grandparents did it
    When they {courted}

    I would have loved you
    In that way

    When walks by the lake were all you had to do
    And a squeeze of the hand said;

    I LOVE YOU

    Yes…that time.
    You know
    Skinny dipping
    While tripping over modesty
    Trying hard to make sure
    Her eyes weren’t sipping too much of me

    {yet, hoping she did.}

    YEAH.

    YEAH.

    I would have loved you in the evening shadows
    When the flowers lost their full bloom

    I would have showered you with saucy love
    From head to toe
    Stirring the heat of you

    That’s what I’d do

    In AnOtHeR tImE.

    Well, brother poet, this was just laden in that slow but lasting, soulful, sonnet inspiring kind of love, that I guess yes, is from another time. Quite a beautiful write.

    a back in the day time

    when things were a little less chaotic

    when things seemed more genuine

    and not so processed like today's world:em2400:

    my fellow poets/poetesses...

    when we think back on "that" more simplistic time...when we didn't have to worry about all the BS, the attitudes, the hoops others want us to jump through...we could focus on the EMOTIONS of it all. and, yes, LOVE is a WONDERFULLY, BEAUTIFUL emotion to experience, in the right setting...even today. but, YESTERDAY, when our thoughts were pure...and our emotions sure of what tomorrow would bring...well, that's AnOtHeR tImE.

    THANKS for reading.

    Nice Flow

    Nice one Baller

    I can relate with Another Time.

    " When people did what they would say
    And “I LOVE YOU” meant more than
    PHYSICAL INTIMACY "


    Cause love is performed in the mind, and the body reacts.
