    If I run back into your arms,
    Would it feel the same?
    I ask because as I look at you,
    I can see the many names,
    Indicating the many,
    That came after me.
    Revealing the many,
    You have opened them to.
    But if you look at me,
    My slate is empty,
    Because the last one that had that place,
    Was you.

    If I hug you again,
    And I do it like I do it….tight
    Would it feel right?
    You remember when I ran my finger single,
    Down your spine…it made you tingle.
    But I think to myself,
    Of course that feeling,
    Is easy for you to reminisce,
    I can look on your back,
    And see the different finger prints.

    If I kissed you again,
    Would my attempt at pleasure fail?
    You probably got used to the long,
    Make-out sessions with lots of tongue,
    My cute soft kisses would probably be stale.
    Others might have showed you things,
    Things you never knew before.
    You might have gotten used,
    To things being ‘nice’ and raw.
    Probably can’t compare to my fact,
    That I still have to experience much more.

    If you come into my life again,
    And ask me to sleep with you,
    I wonder if I will say yes.
    Knowing fully well that,
    You told me that marrying virgins,
    Was best.
    You was going to ask me for my hand
    I was supposed to be your virgin,
    We had it planned.
    Gift unopened, still packed,
    Proof still intact.
    But you opened your body, your spirit,
    To different soul ties, because of open thighs.
    I know that we were separated….but I saved myself
    I was consecrated.
    But now you’ve ventured back….
    Expecting me to take you back.
    My heart is not for it,
    But it’s neither against.
    Then again I have no defense…
    I’m still attached,
    And I feel like it’s going to overpower my sense.
    Choice is mine…’My God help me….you're fine!’
    But what…if I…

    Wanting to welcome him back, but fearing, what if? Most have been down this road a time or two. I liked the back and forth rhythm of the pros and cons of going back to him. Keep flowing.

    Is it true that "IF" is the smallest word in the dictionary, but has the biggest meaning?

    If...is a :hot: word...and a :hot: 're choice
    loved the poem, sometimes or another we all comes to the "Ifs" in our lives...thanks for sharing this piece, I enjoyed reading it.

    I read this piece earlier today. Really can relate to this poem. The word "If" is a powerful word in a sense. Sometimes you just have to take that chance...consesquences arent always bad. Good work


    one luv
