    I took out a picture of you yesterday.
    I have a lot of time on my hands.
    Looked at it like I always do
    and wondered who is loving you now.

    If I could turn back the hands of time.
    I would not hesitate.

    I really miss you.
    I know I put your wishes
    after my own selfish needs.

    I didn’t get a chance to do it.
    I want to share my heart with you.

    I made some foolish mistakes
    and I know now you loved me.
    I know now we could have
    had something good.

    Deep down in my soul.
    I am experiencing something
    I know is real.

    I miss you.

    I love you.

    I need you now.

    I wish you were still here.

    Then I put your picture back
    into my hiding place.
    I don’t want anyone to
    know I do this.

    I don’t want it to be discovered
    and I get questioned about why,
    or how did I ever let you go.

    Tonight I hope you enter my dreams.
    So that we can have that
    special uninterrupted moment.
    Where I can express myself,
    without the pressure of me thinking.

    I sound foolish and feel
    I am acting foolish.

    Because in dreams things just flow.
    I can make them happen any way I like.
    I can make them happen in any fashion I like.

    If we do kiss tonight, if you do come.
    I hope you feel it over the miles
    that are between us.

    I’ll say to you.
    I do love you.

    I don’t want to wake up from this.

    Who is loving you now?

    I do know when I wake
    it will be true again.
    It’s not me and
    you’re not here loving me.

    re: Time

    Very well written. Sometimes it is hard to face the regret after a relationship
    ends but it is all experience of Life. Hang in there.

    This was so heartfelt Hodee. Been there, and it is quite a bitter pill to swallow. Such a genuine flow, the words were piercing. Flow on brotha.

    Whoa!

    <floats in>

    Now this is love poetry at it's finest, just pure and raw and unashamed. Really felt this one poet, and it brought be some memories that I thought I had forgotten.

    Great work!

    keep the words moving

    peace&1luv
