Pretending With Issues

What’s the point of a friendship when there are deeper emotions involved?

Do you want continue play mind-games or be nothing to me at all?

I never lied to myself; your comforting words was never enough for me

You should know very well what I wanted you to see

My feelings aren’t meant to be played with like a mindless doll

Never been the type to pretend not when I have issues that makes me fall

My heart desperately needs affection, beating uncontrollably for you in all directions

It longed for yours but all you had to give is an erection

Will it be you pulling the strings, manipulated by a puppeteer’s selfish motives to the end?

Can it be so simple to just pretend?

Pretend nothing is wrong from within

Your actions are telling my heart, “Stop being difficult.” Is my love for a impassionate man a sin?

The morals inside of me tells me to press on and leave from this emotional torment

It’s not a relationship but I know I want to be free from the attachment

Friends never get this attached through one’s fascination

This isn’t no love, it could simply be infatuation

Admittedly, cravings of lust for you was there

Live with no regrets, all I can do is sincerely care

If respect was ever in your category, my departure from you then you’ll understand

Romantic love is just as rewarding as intimate lust, but to learn that you’ll have to mature further as a man

Take care; I hope you realize one day my heart was one of the rarest


Treat others the same way I loved you then may maybe you will end up with a woman just as fairest

What intrigues me most about

What intrigues me most about this write is the phrase 'intimate lust'. You appear endlessly loyal, honest, and authentic to me, and yet, I know that the times in my life I experienced what you hav explained here--- it was because I needed to grow past the fears inside from childhood that lust was a bad thing. What I learned is that lust is not a bad thing as long as you keep it compartmentalized. After learning what I did during those years I wouldn't mix the words 'intimate' and 'lust', unless there was also 'romantic' and 'love'.... without the 'romantic and love' part, well, I'd just as well drop the 'intimate' part altogether and call a spade a spade. I don't think lust can be intimate without romantic and's just plain lust. (which I'm not judging at all--it's just a lot easier to enjoy something when you have an understanding of it, and aren't expecting anything more from it!----could as well be a good vibrator! Wink).


Anyway, That caught my eye with this one!! :-D ~peace~

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

But my poems are short. Kidding. Night, friendly stranger. But seriously, my poems are short compared to the other writings of poetry I've seen.
