    Love called me from your lips and I did not reply
    I fade into the background and I don’t know why
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You’ve given me so much…this, I can not deny
    I can not explain your presence so I dare not try

    Yet, this feeling I’m feeling is so very real
    I enjoy you for more than your sex appeal

    I look towards the heavens…way beyond the sky
    I pray that GOD will give me answers to the reasons why

    Until then, I bask in the joy of you as I cry
    And yet, I give you fifty feet and I don’t know why
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It wasn’t fear
    That doesn’t live here

    It wasn’t past pain
    From my heart, she did wane

    It’s not another woman taking your place
    There is only you in my spiritual and mental space

    To me, you’ve never told a single lie
    And yet, I fade into the shadows and I don’t know why
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    You’re my incomplete complete
    With you, no woman can compete

    Your style…your grace
    The sweet smile upon your face

    Raw and yet so fine
    My sweet 99.9

    With all that you give as you wait on my reply
    I fade into the background and I don’t know why

    99.9 % Brilliant concept and 1% Intrigue…

    Applause
    Applause
    Applause

    This was a beautifully honest piece
    With a gorgeous undertow of passion
    That sweeps the reader away…
    Brilliant concept this…99.9% was
    Sometimes the 1% is that crucial
    Element we call “Intrigue”…
    that thing that keeps relationships alive
    without it...love sometimes dies
    but...In all
    this poem is 100%, 100%, 100%


    Loving it…
    Sage​

    This is breath-taking ...
    Not many can catch me "speech-less" ...but at this moment, I am ...It was laid out with style, I'm not even sure of how to feel, reading this.
    I can only say, it's an "Awesome piece" poet.
