    if i'm not in love
    and i'm not
    delusional or
    excitable or
    prone to give in to
    hysteria or spellbound
    to do what women
    are said to do
    then
    why do i cry?
    why do i need
    his arms around me
    his kisses on
    my neck
    and to dance
    that forgotten dance
    that only lovers do?
    but
    we're not together
    never have been
    one night
    a few conversations
    however my heart
    the rusty old thing
    beats a full fox trot
    and tango for two
    whenever he happens
    to be around
    or when his voice
    caresses my ear
    i'm not in love
    i can't be
    not again
    but
    look at the evidence
    like
    when he touches me
    my eyes
    flutter closed and
    my knees knock together
    i get all shivery
    readying certain parts
    of my female anatomy
    for the pounce
    this is all physical
    see? it's not love
    then why do i dream
    of walks no less
    in parks and
    along beaches
    of moonlit dinners
    red roses and such
    and why do i
    have this overwhelming
    urge to cook?
    this is insane
    but
    it's in my mind
    and in my heart
    i am not in love
    but then again
    ain't the
    easter bunny and
    santa claus
    best friends?

    Why not entertain love, like lovers do?

    Loving your touch!

    Girl, this is a deep poem. Personally, I have never felt that type of love
    and never wish to but you are in Love. Be careful. :wave:

    No one wants to feel hurt again, I love the way you plead your case here in this vibe. But when the love bug bites, it's too late to use insect repellent....lol. I know how you feel sis.
