C’mon in tonight
I’ve been lonesome
I’ve been empty like
a well in long drought
Sitting here, still listening
to many a love song,
the dreamer’s road
where all I can see is you –
finer than rainbow rings,
lovelier than the scent
of a thousand blooming roses.
as couples unite
and find love in the middle
of their warm embrace
all I want is you…
to come over without
the look of a stranger in your eyes
And without delay, your fingers
fitting perfectly between mine
as you love the all of me.
Maybe I’m too poor
to drive you around in fancy cars
or send you a basket of roses
or bathe you in a shower of diamonds
But it’s the thought of you
that gives my heart no rest
So I ask that you be with me
even if it were just this once.

You have many sides, Uzoma.
Haha. I appreciate the thought. Everyone needs the balance. You do that very well, my dear friend 🙂
very beautiful words, wishes and tenderness 🙂
Yes, Gys, wishes and tenderness engulf our hearts when we love. It’s the beauty of life–just like I learn from your poems.
It’s nice how the poet is portrayed as honest and affectionate in this one. Very sweet
Yes, love is always honest and affectionate. Sometimes words are not enough to express this feeling. I’m glad you you enjoyed it.
Your words have the pain of the poet’s heart.
Exactly! In it (heart) are the wonders of unspoken words. Thanks for coming around, MJ.
Oh Uzo this is lovely =-)
Thanks a heap, Val 🙂
Beautifully written Uzo. 🙂
Glad you liked it, Liza 🙂
Sweet, sensual, pristine, lovely! Thanks for sharing this Uzoma, I simply love it! 🙂
Your thoughts are always a blessing to me, sis. I appreciate your coming around 🙂
It’s the perfect time of the year for cupid’s arrows, but I find, from some considerable experience, that the buck-naked cherub has either bad eyesight or an inspired though somewhat improvident talent for irony.
Hahahaha. Prospero! Now that’s something to pay close attention to. But wait a sec…you can’t blame the young chap when there millions of people who are out there either waiting for love trying to consolidate on what they feel already.
I wish I could write like THAT!!!
Hey, you’re doing great already, Alethea. I appreciate your thoughts on this one.
Thank you, Darlene 🙂
great ..what a yearning thru the words
Yes, yearning! That’s a very good way to describe it. Thanks, Soumyav.
Reblogged this on Romance with Val and commented:
Very Nicely written Uzo!
Aw, thanks a heap for the reblog, Val. It’s a great honour 🙂
Nice poem, Uzo. When I see such beautiful words, I wish I could become a poet again.
Thanks, bro. It’s never too late to try. You’re doing great.
You mede me remember something by this one, Uzoma. 😉
That’s understandable. My past sometimes prompts me write about it or something related 🙂
Beneath the light evening dew of the morning Sun, may you find the tender velvet petals of the wild roses, open to greet you passing by, your voice and poetic soul in fine tune, vibrant with the abundance of beautiful verse and cadence…
I appreciate your wonderful feedback. It’s a poetic shower 🙂
Such sensual, romantic writing, Uzo. You’ve mastered the art of intimacy through writing. May your ink flow as crimson as a rose and your heart whisper softly such words of romance.
*chuckles* What a heartfelt compliment, Seth. Honestly, I’ll say that I was inspired at the time and I had to scribble the words (most of them) down to avoid losing them to the passing winds. I’m grateful for your kind thoughts and I wish you the same!
Just got to read this, beautiful and romantic.
I’m glad I didn’t disappoint 🙂
