    To be held
    Yes, that would be nice
    And whispered sweet nothings
    Not once, not twice, but thrice
    Three times the charm
    So...baby, baby, baby
    Gently wrap each of those ebony arms
    around the reality of me

    I want to be held
    in high esteem
    beyond hope
    and much farther than a dream
    I suppose I don't seem real
    When you're used to a diet of lies
    But I don't have time for games,
    schemes, or alibis

    I want to be held
    in truth, and that's actual
    If I say I'm gonna do it, then
    it's done, and that's factual
    And I expect exactly the same
    from my king
    If you say you're gonna do it
    Then do the **** thing

    I want to be held
    I want to be eased
    And I in return
    will make you quite pleased
    You'll smile, then kick yourself
    for dragging those cold feet
    Now that you're submerged in
    the warmth that's sweeter than sweet

    I want to be held
    as everyone else does too
    Who doesn't want to have the
    embrace of a loved one around you
    To be held
    Shouldn't be a task
    nor too much to ask...
    Or, is it?

    my sista poet

    no it's not to much to ask

    ask and you shall receive

    only thing be careful for what you wish for...........................


    but no it's not to much to ask

    we are only human

    we need love

    we need to feel the touch

    what are we supposed to

    well one thing we can't do it let that drive you crazy

    and do stuff you wouldn't normally do

    peace SISTA WATZ!

    nothing more then to please
    from the arms of thy squeeze
    to be held in the comfort of he
    to look in da eyez of something sweet
    i can't say no to ya plea
    I'll surely caress thee rapidly
    it's not to much to ask
    and i'm ready to stand to da task
    I want to hold u close
    whisper them words and toast
    are u ready to give
    and say yes to what's so real
    if so then it's a deal !

    whoaaa ...
    That's sweet, ... that's tight and that's so [email protected] right
    there's nothing more beautiful than to snuggle, hold, squeeze and just lay, with a loving other.
    I'll drink to this piece...it's on time

    Rich,

    If you want to please then
    wrap those loving arms around me
    Caress and confess, make
    me blush and smile with glee
    If it's not too much to ask then
    I'm ready to hold you closer still
    Here's my empty goblet
    just waiting for you to fill
    If you're ready to receive
    then I'm ready to give to you
    I agree with what's real
    I say yes to what's true

    Queent, you're certainly right, there is nothing sweeter than that. Cheers, sister! Thank you a whole bunch.

    hi Sis
    you are so right about that
    It shouldn't be a task, and it's not
    hard to do. If only more could understand
    that it's the simples things that count. Much love
    awesome drop

    Peace~N~Love

    Definitely NOT! To be held "should not be" too much to ask...but sometimes it seems like it is. But that's ok...You said it better than I ever could have. That's all we want and need...to be held!!!!

    Great write my sistah!!!!
